Jude Bellingham hints at preference between Liverpool and Man Utd after Anfield thrashing
| Last updated
Jude Bellingham has sparked transfer speculation after he 'liked' Trent Alexander-Arnold's Instagram post following Liverpool's thrashing of Manchester United.
The Red Devils were blown out of the water at Anfield as they shipped seven goals to Jurgen Klopp's side in a historic 7-0 win.
Goals from Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo and Darwin Nunez ensured all three points in Merseyside.
Despite a largely disappointing campaign, Liverpool have clawed their way back to fifth, three points adrift of the top four.
Bellingham 'hints' at Liverpool move
In another boost for the Reds, Bellingham has got supporters talking over a potential switch to Merseyside.
Liverpool right back Alexander-Arnold took to social media after the game, posting a photo of himself under the 'This is Anfield' sign in the tunnel.
Fans were quick to pick up on the fact that fellow England teammate Bellingham liked the photo, reigniting speculation over a move to Anfield.
Bellingham has become one of the most sought after players in world football following his glowing performances at the World Cup in Qatar.
The 19-year-old has managed 10 goals and six assists for Borussia Dortmund this season, helping them to joint first place in the Bundesliga.
Could Man Utd bid for Bellingham?
However, he looks destined to leave Germany, having amassed interest from Europe's elite.
Bellingham's contract is set to run out in 2025 and Liverpool are allegedly frontrunners for his signature. However, United are also said to be in the running.
The Athletic claim that United could make a move for Bellingham if the club is sold before the summer window.
"Not so long ago, United would have been viewed as outsiders for Bellingham but things are changing in the red half of Manchester," the report read.
"If a sale happens in the coming weeks, don't rule out United being the team to have the money to do this deal.
"Whether or not that is a move Bellingham wants remains to be seen."
