PSG join race for Borussia Dortmund starlet Jude Bellingham

PSG join race for Borussia Dortmund starlet Jude Bellingham

Paris Saint-Germain are the latest European heavyweights to register interest in Borussia Dortmund’s highly sought-after starlet Jude Bellingham.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the French giants are now strong contenders to secure the services of the Englishman alongside Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester City.

Bellingham’s current deal with Dortmund runs out in 2025, but Dortmund will face a fight to hang on to their prized asset this summer.

While they harbour hopes of getting Bellingham to commit his future to the club, the England international is strongly expected to leave Signal Iduna Park at the end of the season.

Despite slapping a hefty €150 million price tag on the former Birmingham City midfielder, potential suitors remain undeterred and ready to snap him up.

Bellingham is currently on a €6 million per year salary package, but the club would like to offer him €15m to ward off interest from suitors for at least one more campaign.

However, crashing out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage to Chelsea could scupper those plans with their Bundesliga bid hanging in the balance.

Bellingham has been a vital cog in Edin Terzic’s title-chasing side this season, but Der BVB’s hunt for the league crown took a hit following their 4-2 defeat to defending champions Bayern Munich.

Their hopes of ending the campaign with silverware took another wrong turn after crashing out of the DFB Pokal quarter-final following a 2-0 defeat to RB Leipzig.

Dortmund are running out of ways to convince the coveted midfielder that remaining in Germany is the best option for his future.

While Madrid and Man City are considered front runners for the 19-year-old, PSG could also be an attractive destination with the French giants keen.
