Pep Clotet issues honest claim on the future of Jude Bellingham amid Man Utd links



Pep Clotet expects there to be more interest in Jude Bellingham over the next few weeks, amid speculation linking the midfielder to Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund.

The 16-year-old has enjoyed an outstanding breakthrough season for Birmingham City, with the teenager making 35 first-team appearances across all competitions and scoring four goals in total.

The young midfielder is undoubtedly the hottest prospect in the EFL right now, and he has been heavily linked with moves to the likes of Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund in recent months.

Can you answer these seven Birmingham City questions correctly?

What was the club's first name?

Ahead of the summer transfer window, there is bound to be interest in Bellingham with Blues resigned to losing their most prized asset, and this is something Clotet is braced for.

As per Sky Sports, the Birmingham head coach has admitted that he expects there to be more interest in Bellingham over the course of the next few weeks, as Blues gear up for a potential return to EFL action.

He said: “What I’m very happy about now is that Jude is here with us and all the players are here with us as well. We focus on that really, but I understand there’s going to be more speculation when the games do come back.

“As a head coach, I don’t deal with transfers, it’s the club. But I can imagine the situation has all the clubs very worried about how to finish this season and what impact this season has into next season.

“That can change a lot of the future of the clubs. Possibly it’s going to be a busy summer, possibly it’s going to be less busy, we still don’t know what impact it will have.”

Birmingham currently sit 16th in the Championship table and have already made decisions on some players’ futures, with the likes of Jacques Maghoma, Cheick Keita and David Stockdale all leaving St. Andrew’s upon the expiry of their contracts.

The Verdict

It seems almost inevitable that Bellingham will be leaving St. Andrew’s this summer amid interest from two of the biggest clubs in the world.

I think wherever he decides to go, regular game time is a must, as this will help him develop as a player and keep on improving.

A move to Germany could be the making of him – it would be a great experience to move to a different country, but it could take time to settle down.
