Borussia Dortmund win race for Manchester United target


Borussia Dortmund are on the verge of snapping up Birmingham teenager Jude Bellingham in a club-record deal, cliams Sport Bild.


Bellingham has emerged as one of the most sought after young English talents since the beginning of the season and has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were still keen on signing the Birmingham teenager despite failing with several offers in January.


However, it has now emerged Dortmund are in advanced talks to sign Bellingham and have even agreed personal terms with the midfielder.


The Bundesliga has emerged as an unexpected destination for young English talent and Dortmund are on the market for a replacement for Jadon Sancho.

The England international is set to return to the Premier League this summer after developing into one of the best players in the world during his three-year stint at Dortmund.


Bellingham will not only become the most expensive British teenager of all-time this summer but also Dortmund's record buy.


A €35m (£30.6m) deal for Bellingham will eclipse the fee Dortmund paid to re-sign Mats Hummels from Bayern Munich last summer.


Bellingham has played a direct hand in six goals in 31 league appearances for Championship side Birmingham in his breakthrough campaign (four goals, two assists).
