Jude Bellingham’s future at Birmingham City is much the talking point of late after links to Premier League side Manchester United.
Bellingham has burst on to the scene this season for the Blues and has been an ever present for head coach Pep Clotet.
With his solid performances this term in the Championship, Bellingham is still only 16 and his current situation at the club has led to a number of Premier League sides to show interest.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Old Trafford outfit are said to be willing to offer £12.5m to sign the youngster, but the report also goes on to add that two clubs have held talks with the Blues.
Bellingham is a boyhood Birmingham fan and the Midlands based club are confident that he will sign a professional contract in June when he turns 17.
The youngster has scored three goals in his 23 appearances in the Championship this season.

Why would he want to sit on Man Ire’s bench when he can continue his development with the club he supports and loves until it is the right time for him to go?

Lying to a 16 year old to try get him to sign for you. We all know he wouldn’t get anywhere near the playing time he gets here. He might get the odd Cup game
