Chelsea are ready to sign £100million Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham but face competition from Premier League clubs Manchester United and Liverpool, according to The Sun.

Bellingham has become one of the most sought after midfielders in the world after excelling in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund.

The 19 year old England international is also attracting interest from Spanish side Real Madrid, who see him as the ideal replacement for 37 year old Luka Modric.

Chelsea are looking to snap up some of the most talented youngsters in the world ahead of the 2023-2024 campaign and have identified Bellingham as a ideal signing.

Liverpool see Bellingham as the key piece to Jurgen Klopp’s midfield puzzle. Klopp is reportedly a huge fan of the 19 year old midfielder and even tried to sign him this summer.

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is hoping to secure the signing of Bellingham next summer after missing out on signing Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona.
