Erling Haaland reportedly persuaded former Borussia Dortmund colleague Jude Bellingham to join him at Manchester City.
After two and a half incredible years in Germany, the sensational goal scorer from Norway signed a five-year contract with the Premier League champions. Bellingham joined the Bundesliga team in the summer of 2020 from Birmingham City, and they collaborated for two of those seasons.
Erling Haaland Persuades Jude Bellingham To Join Manchester City
After a breakthrough season with the Blues, Jude Bellingham became one of Europe’s most sought-after prospects. Dortmund was finally successful in their pursuit of the 19-year-old player, despite competition from a number of highly regarded teams; a similar transfer drama hunt is sure to recur the following year. According to Newsgist24 Football news, Real Madrid is becoming more and more confident in putting together a deal to acquire Bellingham in 2023.

Bellingham has previously been linked to Liverpool on several occasions, in addition to Chelsea and Manchester United, who are also reportedly interested in the England international. Several elite clubs are reportedly interested in the midfielder, who could be made available in an £83 million deal next summer.
Although Jude Bellingham’s future is far from certain, Dortmund is still holding out hope that they can extend his contract. Real Madrid may be leading the race. Although Dortmund would honour the wishes of the star player for England, the player is currently under contract with the German club until 2025, thus there is no immediate pressure on the club to sell.
According to CBS Sports, City and Liverpool have worked more to secure a deal to capture the young player than either United or Chelsea, whose interest is currently at a more nascent stage. According to the claims, Haaland has already given the midfielder instructions to play beside him at the Etihad Stadium in English football.
It’s tantalizing to think that the two might work together at City after spending two seasons together at Dortmund. Since the Norwegian striker’s summer transfer switch, they have remained good pals off the field and in contact.
After their Champions League group stage match in Manchester earlier this month, the two players embraced tightly. After the forward won the game late for City, Bellingham was heard to exclaim in amicable irritation, “F*** sake mate.”
Bellingham once again shone for Dortmund in that match, which only served to fuel rumours about his future. It’s already a scramble to get his signature.
