Manchester City are locked in talks to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.
The Daily Mail says City, along with a number of key rivals at home and abroad, are keen on taking the 19-year-old midfielder from Borussia Dortmund.
And they are now being viewed as the likely winners of what would be a major transfer battle.
Relations between City and Dortmund are strong, following Erling Haaland’s summer switch between the two, and initial conversations have been held at City’s end.
A move may not materialise for some time, with the prospect of a strong performance at the World Cup pricing the England man out of the market.
It is, however, highly unlikely that he will see out his contract in Germany.
