The Red Devils seem keen on teenage sensation Jude Bellingham from Birmingham amid interest from other European heavyweights.

It has been more than three weeks in the January transfer window and Manchester United are yet to make any signings. But one man who is on their radar is Birmingham City youngster, Jude Bellingham.

A report in The Sun suggests that United are keen to bring the midfielder to Old Trafford and have now made an approach to sign him from the Midlands club. The bid is said to be in excess of 30 million pounds. 

Bellingham created history after becoming the youngest player for Birmingham to make his debut against Portsmouth in August last year at the tender age of 16 years and 38 days.

But the bigger talking point here is his potential, as the youngster has already recorded great numbers in the Championship this year, playing 25 games for the Blues.

Other European footballing powerhouses are also keeping tabs on Bellingham. Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, all have the teenager on their radar.

But with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having a specific strategy of signing players and building for the future, one wouldn’t be surprised if Jude Bellingham chooses to sign for the Red Devils.
