Man Utd target Jude Bellingham’s parents seen leaving training ground
Jude Bellingham's parents were spotted leaving Manchester United's training ground in Carrington on Monday as speculation continues to link the Birmingham youngster with a move to Old Trafford.
The 16-year-old has taken the Championship by storm this season for the Blues, scoring four goals and creating two assists in 32 appearances in the division.
It was thought he was close to a move to Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund, but it appears that he may now be nearing joining United in the summer.
Bellingham's father Mark left Carrington in a 4X4, with Bellingham thought to have been in the back seat, while United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and transfer guru Matt Judge also left around an hour later.
It remains to be seen if United make a bid for the player, with Birmingham said to value the starlet at around £50m, but it seems that they are set to rival Dortmund for his signature.
Bellingham currently earns just £145 a week on a scholarship contract and has yet to sign his first professional deal, but he will be eligible to do so when he turns 17 in June, and he could be in line to earn an eye-watering £100k-a-week.
He is the youngest scorer in Birmingham's history and the youngest player ever to appear for them, but it seems the Championship side are powerless to prevent Bellingham moving to one of Europe's elite clubs.
Birmingham currently lie in 16th place in the Championship table, and lost their most recent game 3-1 at home to Reading.
