Chelsea are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham but face competition from Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

The 19 year old midfielder, who impressed for England at the World Cup, is set to leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season.

According to Matteo Moretto via talkSPORT, Bellingham would favour a move to Real Madrid over joining a team in the Premier League.

Borussia Dortmund signed Bellingham from Birmingham City in 2020 as a 16 year old for €25million.

The German side will seek an initial €100m fee from Bellingham’s sale – plus a series of add-ons that could take his total price tag to around €140m.

Bellingham will be out of contract in 18 months’ time and Borussia Dortmund accept they must cash in this summer or risk losing him for free at the end of the 2024/25 season.
