Jude Bellingham told to pick Manchester United ahead of Premier League rivals
| Last updated
Jude Bellingham has been told he should ignore interest from both Liverpool and Manchester City this summer and instead move to Manchester United.
There may be fewer more popular players in the summer transfer window than Bellingham, should he be allowed to leave Borussia Dortmund, as is expected.
It's not like he wasn't already considered one of the must have players in the world before the World Cup but, his performances in Qatar just took him to a new level.
Such is the determination to sign the 19-year-old that Liverpool are basically ready to give his entire family jobs at Anfield, with room for his mum in the HR department presumably being found as we speak.
The Reds will know they probably need to finish in the top four to secure his signature, with City and Real Madrid amongst the others who have been linked.
However, former United forward Louis Saha thinks the ex Birmingham City midfielder should ignore all the other big clubs and instead move to Old Trafford.
"For a player that’s very young, he has the luxury of having interest from many, many big clubs," the Frenchman told the Games Cabin.
"His heart should always go for the team he really loves, where he believes he can achieve a lot of things and where he believes he could improve. That’s up to him.
"As a fan of Manchester United, I would obviously say that Manchester United is the ideal destination for Jude. A lot of the time, player’s don’t necessarily go to the clubs they love and respect the most.
"A lot of it is to do with the salary and what their agents are thinking, so a lot of it will depend on that. The kid is so talented and he deserves to make his own choice.
"This season, Manchester United are so exciting and for a player like Jude, who’s got intelligence, great energy, composure and all the skills you need, then he can go anywhere he wants."
United's midfield has certainly looked stronger in recent months, with Erik ten Hag having brought Christian Eriksen and Casemiro in last summer.
Eriksen's injury has proved how short of quality behind those two they still are however, with Marcel Sabitzer brought in on loan on deadline day to cover the problems.
It's not the first time a club legend has gone in to bat for his team in order to try and sign Bellingham, with Steven Gerrard also 'accused' of tapping up the midfielder.
