Jude Bellingham is Man Utd’s No.1 Transfer Target, Says Sky Sports Journalist

Sky Sports journalist Florian Plettenberg reports that Borussia Dortmund and England midfielder Jude Bellingham is Manchester United’s number one transfer target for 2023.

Plettenberg says the Red Devils have scouted the young midfielder a lot and expect him to cost €150m. He adds that Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag wants the highly rated midfielder in 2023.

However, Plettenberg also adds that Manchester United’s chances of signing Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund are slim due to the competition they will face from Liverpool and Manchester City for the 19-year-old’s services and financial fair play.

In another tweet, Plettenberg also said that Liverpool are optimistic of landing Bellingham in 2023, with the Reds midfielder being the main target. Jurgen Klopp is interested in signing Bellingham, while Liverpool also want to invest in the summer.
