Jude Bellingham, a target for Liverpool and Manchester City, is reportedly not interested in joining Chelsea next year.

A report from TEAMtalk claims that Jude Bellingham is not interested in moving to Chelsea. Liverpool are currently the front-runners to secure the services of the English international, also a target for Manchester City.

The 19-year-old midfielder is regarded as one of the best young talents in the world, and it is no surprise that the top Premier League clubs are queueing up to secure his services. It will be interesting to see where he ends up eventually.

Apparently, the player could cost around £135 million this summer, and not a lot of clubs can afford that kind of money for one player. Liverpool desperately need midfield reinforcements, and Jurgen Klopp is determined to sign the 19-year-old.

The Premier League side are prepared to give it their best shot, and it remains to be seen whether they can fend off the competition from the Manchester clubs and secure his signature. But paying over the odds might be beyond Liverpool.

Meanwhile, the report from TEAMtalk adds that the midfielder is a priority target for Erik ten Hag at Manchester United as well. The Red Devils could do with a couple of midfield reinforcements, and Bellingham would be an ideal partner for Brazilian international Casemiro at the heart of Manchester United’s midfield.

As for Manchester City, with Ilkay Gundogan out of contract at the end of the season, the Premier League champions could use Bellingham as a replacement for the German international.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid have been credited with an interesting player as well. But the report claims that the Spanish giants could back out of the transfer race if the reported asking price is unreasonable. As for a key piece of information in the report, Bellingham will not prefer to join Chelsea.

It will be interesting to see where the English midfielder ends up eventually. He is a world-class talent who is destined to be a superstar in the future. Whoever ends up signing him will have an elite performer in their ranks for the foreseeable future.
