Jude Bellingham sends cheeky message to Jack Grealish after England star tried to convince him to sign for Man City

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham sent a cheeky message to Jack Grealish after his England teammate urged him to sign for Manchester City.
England defeated Euro 2020 champions Italy 2-1 last week in their opening Euro 2024 qualifier before sealing a 2-0 victory over Ukraine.
Grealish and Bellingham both featured in the wins over Ukraine and Italy, with Southgate’s men top of Group C and three points clear of second-place Italy.
Fans earlier this month spotted Grealish hilariously attempting to entice Bellingham, who has been linked with Liverpool and Real Madrid, with a move to the Etihad.
Responding to Bellingham’s comment in Manuel Akanji’s Instagram post, Grealish wrote to his England teammate: “Come to City xx.”
Grealish on Sunday took to Instagram to celebrate England’s victories in their back-to-back Euro 2024 qualifiers ahead of returning to City.
“Perfect week away with the boys. What a group of lads,” he wrote.
Bellingham wasted no time in taking a page out of Grealish’s playbook by sending him a message in the comments.
The 19-year-old England midfielder commented: “Come to Dortmund x.”
According to ESPN, City are ‘growing confident’ that they could complete a sensational swoop for Bellingham in the summer amid fierce interest from Madrid.
However, Dortmund are expected to play hardball over any negotiations involving Bellingham, who is under contract with the German club until 2025.
It is believed that Dortmund are holding out for a whopping £133m fee for Bellingham after losing former star striker Erling Haaland to City last summer.
