Liverpool have been told that youngster Jude Bellingham will make a ‘dispassionate’ decision on his future this summer, with a move to the Premier League a real possibility.
The 17-year-old has enjoyed a breakthrough season at Borussia Dortmund, becoming the youngest ever player to represent the Bundesliga side and earning rave reviews for his performances.
Liverpool have been linked with a move for the England Under-21 international, while Manchester United are also reportedly interested in his services.
And former Birmingham City chief executive, Ren Xuandong, has now revealed that Bellingham is likely to make a ‘dispassionate’ decision on his future.
Xuandong worked with Bellingham during his time at Birmingham and has kept in regular contact with the midfielder’s family since his move to Germany.
And he has now revealed that the player’s future is likely to be decided based on what is best for his development.
“Jude is a special talent,” Xuandong told The Athletic.
“He is a young player who can make a dispassionate decision. He is not influenced by sentiment. He will decide what is best for his development and his career.
“Jude’s family are very supportive, but they won’t push him. They will let him decide what is best for him.”
Bellingham has made 28 appearances in all competitions for Dortmund this season, scoring four goals and providing two assists.
The midfielder has been tipped to play a key role for the German giants in the future, and it remains to be seen whether he will opt to stay at the club or make a move to the Premier League this summer.
