DOHA. — Jude Bellingham is the name on everyone’s lips at the World Cup – with Europe’s top clubs already on red alert.

The 19-year-old has been England’s top performer in Qatar and has become one of the most in-demand players in the world.

Bellingham only signed a new long-term contract at Signal Iduna Park back in 2021.

But his form on the global stage is proving impossible to ignore.

Back in October, the teenager was quizzed on his future, but declined to comment.

He said: “You [the media] will be angry with me as you won’t get a headline, but I’m just focused on the next games with Borussia Dortmund.”

Regardless, SunSport takes a look at the five clubs who could sign Bellingham.

Liverpool

The Reds are the clear favourites to win the race for Bellingham’s signature.

Not only do they desperately need to freshen up their options in the middle, but Jurgen Klopp has a great relationship with the German outfit, which immediately puts Liverpool at the front of the queue.

Add to that Bellingham’s flourishing relationship with Anfield skipper Jordan Henderson during the World Cup and the Reds appear to hold the aces.

Manchester United

United signed Christian Eriksen and Casemiro in the summer, but are still lacking a box-to-box midfielder, with Fred and Scott McTominay not at the level.

Sky Germany recently claimed the midfielder will NOT be completing a move to Old Trafford, but expect the Red Devils to be in the conversation

Manchester City

The reigning Premier League champions signed Kalvin Phillips last summer and already have the likes of Rodri and Ilkay Gundogan in the centre.

But it’s impossible to ever rule City out of any big-money deal and if they badly want Bellingham, they surely have every chance of getting him.

Chelsea

Sunsport revealed last month that Blues owner Todd Boehly is “obsessed” with the idea of signing the teenager.  Chelsea have more pressing areas to focus on, but they also have doubts over the futures of N’Golo Kante and Jorginho, who are out of contract in 2023, so someone like Bellingham could be badly needed.

Real Madrid

The European champions have also been linked with Bellingham and were said to be ‘confident’ of completing a deal back in October.

The sheer competition they face could make life difficult, but a switch to the Santiago Bernabeu is an attractive proposition for any player. The Sun.
