Manchester United have reportedly joined Real Madrid and rivals Manchester City for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.
Bellingham, 19, is set to be the center of a summer tug-o-war between a host of top clubs as his time in Germany edges closer to ending.
Although Liverpool were heavily linked with making an approach in the summer, recent reports from the UK media revealed how the Reds have pulled out of the running due to Dortmund’s $163m valuation.
Consequently, according to German soccer expert Patrick Berger, Bellingham is now wanted by three top European clubs.

With Liverpool out of the race to sign the 19-year-old England international, Erik Ten Hag is understood to be desperate to link up with the former Championship playmaker but the Dutchman will face strong competition from Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and Spanish giants Real Madrid.
