Dortmund have been hoping Bellingham would sign a new contract.
Manchester City is planning a big move for Jude Bellingham who is on the radar of big clubs. The Sky Blues will be alerted by the focus on Jude Bellingham as scrutiny around his future intensifies.
Reports had been rife that Liverpool were closing in on a deal for him on Tuesday but that was quashed as Paul Joyce from The Times reported that Liverpool were to cool their interest.
Sources report that it now leaves City in a strong position in their own pursuit of the England midfielder.
Borussia Dortmund have been knocked out of the Champions League by Chelsea and also lost 4-2 to Bayern Munich as they were toppled at the summit of the Bundesliga. RB Leipzig beat them 2-0 in the DFB-Pokal quarter-final last Wednesday night.
The Englishman is likely to play Premier League next season but the club is not finalized yet. Liverpool were at the front side of signing the young gun but they have pulled out of the signing race.
Dortmund have been hoping he would sign a new contract – and he has remained open to the idea up to now – but there has been a fear it is unlikely if Dortmund’s campaign fizzles out.
Real Madrid are also planning for the English midfielder. Madrid and City have been viewed as the two most enticing landing spots if Bellingham decides on a transfer.
