It’s funny how a number of stories like this run together.
According to a recent story in the Mirror, Manchester United are set to really cut back on their spending when it comes to the summer transfer window, with them potentially having to wait another twelve months to sign their big-money target in Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.
That could in turn mean that there aren’t enough funds to go around for the German side to come and take Jude Bellingham from us.
And speaking recently in an interview with FootballFanCast, former Blues academy man Ben Nuttall said that he believed Bellingham should stay another year to help his development and then perhaps look to signing with a bigger club further down the line.
This of course does have its risks, as I pointed out, whilst this could help his value go up if he continues moving forward, we do run the risk of having that value drop down should he get injured, or perhaps worse, his form from this season doesn’t get replicated.
Are there some benefits to selling Jude Bellingham?
I suppose then it really does come down to one question, what should the club be hoping for this summer?
As I’ve also said before, selling Bellingham could give us a bit of an advantage financially when it comes to next season and the possibility of games being played behind closed doors, so we may not be hit as hard when it comes to the finances of match day crowds.
What do you make of this all?
Do you think that the club should be worried at the potential of losing out on a big fee for Bellingham? Or does the fact that he could be set to stay for another season make you feel happy about the future of the club, knowing the fee could get bigger?
