Manchester United ready to pull out all the stops to land £30m Birmingham starlet Jude Bellingham


Manchester United are ready to pull out all the stops to secure the signature of Birmingham City starlet Jude Bellingham.

The 16-year-old midfielder has his heart set on a move to Borussia Dortmund, according to reports in Germany.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward have made signing Bellingham a 'priority' this summer.

United are willing to put together a package worth around £30million to sign the England youth international, according to the Daily Mirror.

He can sign his first professional contract when he turns 17 on June 29 and earn up to £100,000 a week.

Bellingham broke through to the first-team of the Championship side this season and has plenty of suitors in the Premier League and beyond, from the likes of Manchester United to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

But, according to Bild, he has decided against a move to the Allianz Arena and instead wants to follow in Jadon Sancho's footsteps at Borussia Dortmund.

Sancho is just one of the latest talents to come through in Germany, and 16-year-old Bellingham is said to be eyeing a similar path by leaving the Midlands this summer.

Bellingham is one of the brightest young talents in the English game, and has been valued at around £30m by his club.

He has also undergone talks with United over a potential summer move to Old Trafford, despite latest reports claiming he favours a move to the Bundesliga.

Bellingham was spotted hiding in the back of a car and he and his parents left Carrington following a tour of United's training ground earlier this month.

Sportsmail understands that club legend Sir Alex Ferguson was involved in the charm offensive as United tried to convince the youngster to join their club.
