Jude Bellingham is a player that many are interested in. This young Englishman amazes everyone with his games and talent. However, it is difficult to predict where he will continue his career. Many believe that Manchester United would be the ideal destination.
Rio Ferdinand gave his opinion on it: “Liverpool have ruled themselves out now, (but) I think if they said they would have liked him, there was still a chance he may have gone to Liverpool,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport, as quoted by eurosport.
“Just because he believes in himself and would back himself to be the catalyst to get them back up again, which then amplifies his character and his stardust.
That maybe is something that would have excited him. Man United might offer that, but the problem is that United’s priority is a centre-forward and that’s very secondary.
It’s a lot of money and I don’t think they can do both."
Rio Ferdinand and Bellingham's future
Liverpool and Real Madrid are the two clubs most linked to him. Both clubs would have to spend a lot of money if they want the Dortmund star.
Ferdinand believes that Madrid would be the best option for him. We will see if the young Englishman thinks the same. “If I’m him now, I probably go to Real Madrid. They’ve got a great blend of experience and young players.
You’ve got (Edoardo) Camavinga, (Federico) Valverde and (Aurelien) Tchouameni, three of the other best young midfielders in the world as well in that squad. They’re building for success over a good period of time”.
The biggest problem of going to Liverpool would be that Bellingham would remain without the Champions League for one season. “With Liverpool, the problem now is you can’t guarantee him Champions League footbal," Crouch said. "It’s looking very unlikely they’re going to get that now."
