A summer move for Jude Bellingham looks very likely this summer - here’s how it will benefit Birmingham City

Where will Jude Bellingham end up this summer?

It’s the question everyone in the football world is asking - including those at his former club Birmingham City.

The Borussia Dortmund and England midfielder is set to be the man at the heart of this summer’s biggest transfer saga with the former Blues teenager expected to leave his current club for big money in the coming months.

The 19-year-old, who came through Blues’ academy before making a £20 million switch to Germany’s Bundesliga in 2020, is one of the most wanted players on the planet following his stellar performances captaining Dortmund this season as well as being one of England’s star players at the World Cup in the winter.

Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid the five clubs looking to be the primary contenders for the Stourbridge-born playmaker at the end of the season.

Liverpool are viewed as the favourites to sign Bellingham, with Jurgen Klopp potentially being a big factor. Although whether the Reds can compete financially for his signature with the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid remains to be seen. The Daily Mail also reported on Thursday morning (9 March) that Liverpool are increasingly confident of bringing the midfielder to Anfield.

What Bellingham’s summer move could mean for Blues

Birmingham City will receive a large sum of money if Bellingham were to be sold by Dortmund.

The 19-year-old would earn Blues even more funds if and when he makes another move. This is due to a sell-on clause that was included in the deal that brought Bellingham to Germany in 2020.

According to The Athletic, Birmingham will receive ‘at least’ five percent of any sum Dortmund receive for the English international. This means if he were to leave the club for £100 million, Blues would get at least £5 million of that. Likewise, if Dortmund were to stretch the figure to £150 million, £7.5 million or more would be heading to St Andrew’s.

With so many rumours around at the moment regarding Blues’ ownership and financial status, any such transfer would bring with it a huge boost.
