Manchester United have been linked with Jude Bellingham for quite some time and the latest update is absolutely astonishing.
Earlier this month, Mirror Sport covered a report and claimed that the Red Devils made a move worth £12.5million and are in pole position to hire the services of the Birmingham City starlet.
Few days back, The Daily Record provided an updated and revealed that the 20-time English champions offered a big fee of £25million to lure the talented 16-year-old boy.
Now, The Sun have come up with an exclusive story and claimed that Man Utd have made it clear they will now pay over £30million to secure the signing of the teenage midfielder but they face heavy competition from big European clubs.
Last weekend, the youngster scored his 4th Championship goal of the current campaign for Birmingham City. He has already played 26 senior games in his career and will turn 17 in June.
Quite an achievement but in all fairness, it is astonishing that United are reportedly ready to pay more than £30million for Bellingham but are not raising their offer to sign a proven quality star like Bruno Fernandes when they desperately need to improve the team in the winter transfer window.
O Jogo recently reported that Sporting CP want 70 million euros for their prized asset but Man Utd are only willing to pay 60 million euros. A similar sort of updated has been provided on the The Transfer Window podcast. Transfer experts have argued that the Red Devils are not willing to raise their bid for the Portuguese international.
We lack quality and depth in the midfield and the attack with stars like McTominay, Pogba and Rashford out injured. If Solskjaer does not act swiftly to sort out the dilemma by reinforcing the squad this month, then it will not be astonishing to see us finish outside of the top four yet again.
