Jude Bellingham Wants To Join Chelsea When He Leaves Dortmund

Chelsea have been given yet another reason to sign Jude
Bellingham after the 19-year-old stood out on another below-
par night for Gareth Southgate’s England.
The Borussia Dortmund man has been linked with a big
money move away from Germany next summer with
Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and a host of Europe’s
top teams all circling for the former Birmingham City
Chelsea already looked extensively into trying to make a
move for Bellingham this summer with Todd Boehly’s
ambitious plans to revamp the squad in his first summer, but
given the Blues spent over £250m on players anyway, it is
understandable that he wasn’t pushed further.

Boehly is well aware that two of Chelsea’s current
midfielders are out of contract in the summer and the
futures of N’Golo Kante and Jorginho are anything but certain
heading into the final three months before they can start to
negotiate a free move away from Stamford Bridge.
That makes the situation around Bellingham even more
noteworthy, and Joe Cole has praised the youngster, saying:
“He is really mature on and off the pitch for his age. He is
exactly what England need in that position next to Declan
Bellingham impressed despite England’s labours and is
expected to remain a key target for the club with Graham
Potter’s arrival too. The new manager set up with Jorginho at
the base of his midfield with Mateo Kovacic and Mason
Mount ahead of him as Kante remains out injured.
The midfield Southgate used could give Chelsea their own
hint though, and Cole loves everything about Bellingham,
adding: “He is strong, powerful and gets on the ball. I like the
way he progresses his passes, he is happy to feed it in and is
comfortable having bodies around him. He makes the right
passes at the right time and he is such a talent. When he gets
the ball, he always looks to go forward.
“In the game against Manchester City, he will always look to
pop it and run and go into positions. He needs to be
disciplined and he will need to do that in Gareth Southgate’s
team but he is everything we need for England in that
position. He is in pole position to be next to Declan Rice, and
he is going to add more goals to his game. He is already one
of the biggest talents in world football, I love him.
“If we have Grealish, Maddison and Mount playing in that final
third, we need someone with bravery to give them the ball,
otherwise you could have all the number tens in the world
and Bellingham looks like he can fill that gap for us.”
Mount, who started on the bench for England after a poor
start to the season at Chelsea, is normally one of the go to
players for Southgate, even in a wide forward role that
doesn’t suit him. Now he appears back in the plans of a No.8
at club level, it could blend well with a summer search for
both Bellingham and Rice as Chelsea look to overhaul their
central areas next summer.
If praise from Cole wasn’t enough though, Alessandro Del
Piero wanted a Bellingham of his own, saying: “I wish he was
playing for Italy. He is a young guy and I was very impressed
with the way he spoke. He knows what to do, he knows what
to think, but he is still learning.”
