Manchester City are confident of signing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham, according to The Sun.

Manchester City are reportedly undeterred by Chelsea’s interest in the England international and that of Liverpool and Real Madrid.

Manchester City are confident Bellingham will be keen on moving to the Etihad Stadium due to the prospect of working under Pep Guardiola and playing alongside former teammate Erling Haaland.

Bellingham, 19, is wanted by the biggest clubs on the planet — including Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.

Bellingham is set to leave Borussia Dortmund next summer and the German side are reportedly demanding for around £130million for the England international.

Bellingham has reportedly told clubs interested in signing him next summer that he would prioritise football reasons over money when he picks his next club.

Bellingham is valued at £130m by Dortmund if the deal is structured with staggered payments like most mega-money moves.

However, it is understood that he could leave for just £83m if the entire fee is paid up front.
