On Wednesday Borussia Dortmund released an official update to confirm what has been one of the most dragged out and talked about transfers in recent times – the sale of Jude Bellingham to Real Madrid. The transfer has Blues fans excited due to the prospect of Birmingham City receiving a chunk of change due to a sell-on clause in his transfer to the German club.
With no club matches to write about, the focus for football reporting has turned to the international scene and who might be on the plane to Qatar for the World Cup in November. Jude Bellingham is a name that is in the minds of many and despite the transfer window being months away we’re already being deluged by stories of who might be the next to buy his services.
June 29 sees Birmingham City midfielder Jude Bellingham turn 17 years old and become eligible to sign professional terms with the club. Ironically, while Bellingham will in theory be able to properly commit his future to the club, his signing of a professional deal will more than likely herald the end of his career at St Andrew’s as other clubs swoop for his services.
One of the focal points of the coverage of Blues’ return to pre-season training has been Jude Bellingham. The 15-year-old attacking midfielder has featured prominently in imagery and videos posted by the club on social media as they look to showcase their homegrown talent.
