Man United lead race to sign Jude Bellingham from Dortmund

Manchester United are leading the race to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.

United were one of the teams that were interested in the player while he was still at Dortmund and even gave him a tour in the club's facility something that The Sun says had laid a foundation for his future arrival.

"United may have lost out last year when he moved to Germany, but the groundwork they put in has made a lasting impression on Jude and his family.

“They were really impressed with the effort United made and the respect they were shown by everyone at the club. Meeting Sir Alex Ferguson was the icing on the cake.

“Ultimately as Jude has made clear since, he decided to move to the club where he could see he would play games straight away and gain top-level experience week in, week out.

“United couldn't offer that, but his memories from that day and the interactions he had with the club are extremely fond ones. United did everything right so maybe in the future that will work in their favor," the Sun noted.

The 18-year-old midfielder, who moved to Dortmund moved last year for £25million, is also being monitored by Chelsea and Manchester City.
