Manchester United have hardly no chance of signing Jude Bellingham in summer - Sky Sports Germany journalist

Manchester United hardly have a chance to sign England international starlet Jude Bellingham anymore, according to Sky Sports Germany reporter Florian Plettenberg.

Bellingham is arguably the most sought-after talent in world football right now and has a host of clubs queuing for his signature.

However, Plettenberg confessed that Manchester United could be out of the running to sign Bellingham and “hardly” have a chance of bringing him to Old Trafford.

“Been told that MUFC hardly has a chance anymore,” said Plettenberg on Twitter.

“Triple fight: Liverpool, City, Real! LFC & Klopp pushing! But not at any price due to FFP. Price: Up to €150m! JB is LFCs top target for central midfield – next to 2 players from South America.”

Long road ahead.

The battle for Bellingham will be fierce and it’s going to be a long road ahead to see who comes out on top in this one.

Although, it looks like the Red Devils may have fallen at the first hurdle if Plettenberg’s comments are anything to by.

United could do with a generational talent like the Borussia Dortmund star to come in and sure up their engine room at the moment, so this will leave fans of the club gutted.

Liverpool and Real Madrid are probably the favourites to sign Bellingham, due to their playing styles and what is needed at both clubs.

Nevertheless, whoever does come out on top in this one will have to pay a heap load of cash for the 19-year-old, in what could be a world-record fee.

Bellingham is simply that good and he warrants such a price tag due to his ability to perform on the grandest stages with both club and country.
