Manchester City are now leading the race to sign Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham in the summer following Liverpool’s decision to drop out of the race for the England international, according to ESPN via GOAL.

Liverpool feel a fee in excess of £120 million ($149m) is too much to spend on a single player when they need an overhaul of several positions.

However, Manchester City are willing to pay whatever it takes to sign Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund in the summer and are ahead of Chelsea in the race for the 19 year old midfielder.
