Borussia Dortmund have set an asking price of €120m for England international midfielder Jude Bellingham.
The player who turned 19 on Wednesday is one of the most sought midfielders in the game right now but Dortmund is reluctant to let him go this summer after allowing Erling Haaland to move to Manchester City.
Sports Bild reports that Dortmund will not let go of the player cheaply with both Real Madrid and Liverpool said to have enquired about the availability of the player.
Madrid is planning to move for him in the summer of 2023 as they view him as the heir to 36-year-old Luka Modric who just signed a one-year extension on his deal at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Jude Bellingham was the only player during the 21/22 Bundesliga season to reach 40+ for each of the following:— Squawka (@Squawka) June 29, 2022

The Laliga giants have a plethora of talents in their midfield with the position currently having Modric, Toni Kroos, Casemiro, Fede Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, and Aurelien Tchouameni.
Both Modric and Kroos have just a year left on their current deals and the youngsters have been roped in to help fill their boots when they leave.
