JUDE BELLINGHAM is set for showdown talks with Borussia Dortmund to discuss his next move.
The midfielder is one of the most sought-after properties in Europe after his fantastic performances for the Bundesliga side.
However, Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has said that he would like to see Bellingham stay, while also admitting that big money offers will be hard to turn down.
He told BILD: “I think as soon as Qatar is over, we’re going to have a basic conversation about what he actually wants.
“With him, with his parents, with whom we have a very close relationship and of course with his advisor.
“And then he should just tell us whether he wants to stay or whether he wants to go. Either way, we’ll discuss it pleasantly and reasonably.
“But we don’t have to pretend that the topic isn’t on the table. When the really big ones are there, we can’t afford to fight financially either.
“Jude is a wonderful boy who also has his fluctuations – we’ve seen that now but he is certainly one of the greatest talents in European football.”
Despite the interest from Europe’s biggest clubs, Dortmund will be confident of earning a big fee from his sale as he still has three years left to run on his contract.
This season, Bellingham has become even more impressive at the Signal Iduna Park as he has scored nine goals and assisted three in 22 games in all competitions.
The midfielder has even captained Dortmund at times this season.
Bellingham is expected to be among the starters and could partner West Ham’s Declan Rice in the centre of midfield.
