Dortmund complete the signing of English teenage sensation Jude Bellingham


The ongoing pandemic has certainly impacted the spending spree of most Football clubs across the globe and a lot of gossips which made turns before the lockdown, have disappeared to a great extent. However, Borussia Dortmund remain adamant to get their business going and, in that pursuit, have signed Jude Bellingham from Birmingham City.

Jude Bellingham remained a major acquisition target for Manchester United, who also invited his family over for a club tour. The teenage sensation impressed everyone with his trickery and ball-playing skills in the Championship for Birmingham City and despite the team not doing very well, Bellingham caught a lot of attention.

A per transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Dortmund have agreed on a fee that could rise to 22.75 million pounds. The 17-year-old youngster gets a major hike in weekly wages. He was earning 145 pounds a week during his time at St Andrew’s and it is being reported that he has signed a contract for five years, which will see him earn 3 million pounds per year.

“I can’t thank Birmingham City enough for what the club did for me – not just this season, but since I came to the club when I was seven.

Now I’m really excited to join one of the biggest clubs in Europe. BVB’s path, but especially how they help young players to improve, made the decision very easy for me personally and for my whole family. I can’t wait to play in one of the most beautiful stadiums in the world, hopefully in front of over 80,000 spectators as soon as possible,” the 17-year-old said.

Sharp pirouettes, mystical passing – Another creative addition to BVB’s bench

Bellingham thrives having a quality center-forward or ruthless finisher on either wing. While is a surety that he will enjoy playing alongside Jadon Sancho, there is a very good chance that the English international will make his move to Manchester United.

Besides, the position Bellingham loves to operate is being occupied by Julian Brandt, the German who has been outstanding for Dortmund this edition. Lucien Favre has added great firepower to his bench and has a set of creative players who can make it into any XI as it stands and it will be interesting to see how he rotates them.

Bellingham loves challenging the defenders with his pace and trickery and he is full of surprises while he is on the ball. A lot of experts have also commended his vision and off-the-ball movement, which are crucial facets of becoming a quality playmaker.
