Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi confirms interest in signing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham

By Daily Sports Nigeria on December 7, 2022

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi says Jude Bellingham is an "amazing player" and admits "everybody" wants to sign the Borussia Dortmund midfielder.

Bellingham has shone for England at the World Cup, where he has helped his side set up a quarter-final clash with France on Saturday, while he has established himself as one of the most exciting young players in world football at Borussia Dortmund following his 2020 move from Birmingham.

The 19-year-old has claimed a goal and an assist in four games for England in Qatar, prompting Al-Khelaifi to tell Sky News he is an "amazing player - what a player."

"England (are) lucky to have him, to be honest," Al-Khelaifi added. "He's one of the best players in the tournament.

"Amazing - his first World Cup. He's calm and relaxed, confident - amazing."

A host of Europe's top clubs are said to be interested in signing Bellingham next summer, with Liverpool making him their top priority, according to Sky in Germany.

Manchester City and Real Madrid are understood to be the other clubs holding the most interest and when asked whether PSG would join the chase for Bellingham, Al-Khelaifi said: "Everybody wants him, I'm not going to hide it.

"He's at his club, and (we have) respect, so if we want to talk to him we'll talk to the club first."

Dortmund are understood to already be planning for Bellingham's departure in 2023 as they brace themselves for a big offer in the summer, with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said to be pushing to bring the midfielder to Anfield.

Bellingham, whose contract expires in the summer of 2025, is likely to cost more than £100m in transfer fees alone.

Sky in Germany transfer reporter Florian Plettenberg told Sky Sports News: "Borussia Dortmund are very happy with Jude Bellingham's World Cup performance so far because he's becoming even more valuable from the financial point of view.

"Bellingham is under contract until 2025 and he has no release clause, unlike Erling Haaland did.

"They're already planning for his summer exit in 2023. Dortmund would be fine with him leaving because they are confident in getting a transfer fee between €100m-€150m (£86.24m-£129.37m)."
