Man Utd desperate to sign highly-rated English midfielder

Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly prepared to offer Birmingham City wonderkid Jude Bellingham a £100,000 per week contract at Old Trafford to secure his services.

The 16-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best young talents in the Premier League and has made 32 Championship games during the 2019-20 season, founding back of the net four times and three assists.

Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are both believed to be keen to land the playmaker, however, the Red Devils continue to be credited with an interest in the teenager ahead of this summer’s transfer window.

According to The Mirror, the 20-times English champions are prepared to pay around £30m for his transfer fee to land the Englishman, who could then earn £100,000 per week at Old Trafford.

The academy product, who is believed to still be on a youth wage of £145 per week, will see his current contract at St Andrew’s ends in the summer of 2021.

Manchester United are also believed to be preparing to battle the Citizens for the services of Atletico Madrid playmaker Saul Niguez ahead of the 2020-21 campaign as Spaniard might be keen on to end his career at Wandametropolitano and sign for another team that will compete for trophies in the Premier League.
