Manchester United have Jude Bellingham as top transfer target as club eyes mega summer deal – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United have moved away from Frenkie de Jong and now have a new top-priority target to pursue in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Over the summer, United and Erik ten Hag made several attempts to lure de Jong to Old Trafford, but the Dutch international showed little interest in such a move.

Admittedly, there was an issue over the player’s deferred salary owed him by Barcelona that made a move to England even more unlikely.

Since then, numerous reports have suggested that Ten Hag is still interested in the Blaugrana midfield maestro and will try again to convince him to join and spearhead his United project.

However, it now appears that the 20-time English champions have moved on if a report in The Mirror is to be believed.

According to the outlet, United now have Borussia Dortmund and England international Jude Bellingham at the top of their list and number one transfer target.

David McDonnell relates: “Manchester United have revived their interest in England, valued at £100m, and Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham. United have not given up on signing Bellingham, and the teenager has become boss Erik ten Hag’s main transfer target for next summer.

“United manager Ten Hag was promised the funds necessary to rebuild a United team capable of once again competing for the biggest trophies.”

“Ten Hag and United Football director John Murtough have held several meetings to identify summer transfer targets and have put Bellingham at the top of their list.”

McDonnell adds that like Erling Haaland, Bellingham will also have the selection of Europe’s elite clubs to choose from as their next destination.

Beyond United, other interested parties in the 19-year-old include Manchester City, Liverpool and Real Madrid.

A report surfaced yesterday stating that Real Madrid had been told by Dortmund that Bellingham would cost more than £150m.

Hopefully United can avoid the tough competition for Bellingham and beat their rivals to their coveted signature.
