I think this might be taking things a step too far, don’t you?
It’s all well and good being linked with the likes of Manchester United and Bayern Munich, but when you bring Aston Villa into the equation, all of a sudden things start to take a slightly different tone. According to a report from Duncan Castles (via The Express), the second biggest team in Birmingham are in the hunt for Jude Bellingham. Not quite exactly the same stature of clientele is it?
Whilst again it wouldn’t exactly be a rare thing for someone to make the journey up the Aston expressway, it has been done before, but for such a young prodigy and someone so highly loved by the St Andrew’s faithful to make the move, that might just be a step too far.
Which is why Blues fans were left laughing uncontrollably when the news came through that the 16-year-old was being linked with a move to Villa Park, with many of them not even willing to believe that such a story could exist about their precious young talent.
Interest from the top clubs around the world and then the village come in 😂

Will Bellingham be a Blue at the start of next season?
I think we can chalk this one up as bit of a non-story don’t you? Bellingham to Villa? No chance.
