Three reasons Bellingham could pick Real Madrid over Liverpool including Perez friendship
| Last updated
Borussia Dortmund and England star Jude Bellingham has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool and Real Madrid, amongst others, in recent months.
Bellingham impressed for the Three Lions at the World Cup in Qatar, increasing his reputation on the global stage at the age of just 19.
He was 16 years old when he made his senior debut for Birmingham City, before moving to Dortmund a year later.
Bellingham is one of the Bundesliga's top stars, and his performances have alerted Europe's elite.
Now, it has been claimed that there are three reasons why Bellingham could choose to move to Real Madrid over other clubs, including Liverpool.
Bellingham linked with Real Madrid move
Spanish publication AS claim that Los Blancos hold three key advantages which could help them to sign Bellingham from Dortmund.
They say that president Florentino Perez has a close relationship with Dortmund sporting director Hans-Joaquim Watzke, with the pair having concluded several deals between the two clubs in recent years, including Achraf Hakimi and Reinier.
It is also added that Real's history - including their 14 European Cups, more than any other club - would help to convince Bellingham to make the move to the Bernabeu.
Finally, they claim that the 19-year-old's recent World Cup performances would also aid a move to Los Blancos.
Should the deal for Bellingham not work out, Jurgen Klopp's side will have other alternatives - but they will no doubt remain in the race for the Dortmund midfielder until he or the club makes the final decision on his next destination.
