Jude Bellingham 'views three clubs as unattractive and soulless' after Liverpool end their pursuit

Jude Bellingham 'views three clubs as unattractive and soulless' after Liverpool end their pursuit

Jude Bellingham is keen to avoid “unattractive and soulless clubs".

Jude Bellingham is keen to avoid “unattractive and soulless clubs” should he leave Borussia Dortmund this summer, a fresh report has claimed.

On Tuesday evening it broke that Liverpool were ending their pursuit of Bellingham due to the high transfer fee required to sign the England international.

While Jurgen Klopp is a fan of the player, having labelled him “exceptional” after his World Cup exploits, the teenager will likely cost well over £100million.

Liverpool have endured a torrid season and require several recruits in the summer. Indeed, the size of the Bellingham deal alone means the Anfield club do not consider the transfer a viable option.

Of course, the England international is still not short of suitors. Manchester City, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid all retain an interest in the midfielder, while Dortmund are also keen to keep hold of him.

And according to a report, Los Blancos have an advantage in the race to sign Bellingham.

Bellingham wants to avoid “unattractive and soulless” clubs

According to German publication Bild via Sportbuzzer, Bellingham would favour a move to Real over City, Chelsea and PSG.

Some reports have suggested City are now frontrunners to sign the 19-year-old, given Real are reluctant to spend heavily on transfers due to their stadium renovation expenses.

However, Bild claims that Bellingham sees City, Chelsea and PSG as “unattractive and soulless”, which points towards a move to the La Liga giants.

Bellingham is allegedly more interested in playing for a prestigious club that share his values rather than a side with massive new investment such as PSG, City and Chelsea.

Bild has also claimed that Real would be willing to shell out around €100million (£87million) up front for the starlet, plus offer add-ons that could take the total package to around €130-150million (£114- 131million).

The Spanish side would also reportedly offer Bellingham a contract worth €20million (£17million) per year.

Meanwhile, Bellingham staying at Dortmund for another year is not beyond the realms of possibility, though the Bundesliga club would have to table a contract offer worth at least €15million (£13million).
