I think it’s not so much the annoyance that he’s leaving that’s the problem.

With Jude Bellingham being linked with a move away for a number of months now, it was always going to be a case of when not if the 16-year-old were to leave the club, and according to a recent report from ESPN, that very much appears to be the case as German side Borussia Dortmund have reportedly agreed a deal to take him this summer.

The reported fee for the deal appears to be around £20m according to the report, which is a bit of a comedown from the supposed £30m that was being touted around his name a couple of months ago.

And in the eyes of Birmingham City fans on social media, that quite simply isn’t enough.

Is £20m a fair price for Jude?

Yes

Yes

No

No

When the news came through that the deal was in its final stages, they seemed furious to find out that our prized possession was being let go for a far sight less than what we expected given the rumoured fees. There were even a couple who seemed concerned with how the fee was going to affect our business in the summer window.

What about you? What do you make of the £20m fee for Bellingham?

  • Not happy at all 20 million for jude is a very low price as it was said to start off with £50 million bid from manure but I suppose in the current climate we wont get much more him .has anyone seen his brother play is he the blues talent coming through the blues ranks . Could anyone give me some info on his little brother please . KRO

  • Given the state of football currently and with prices of players across Europe dropping like the Villa dropping points its probably the best we could expect. £30-£35M was possible pre Covid so as long as the deal is structured well enough when Jude develops into the world class talent we know he is and sold on the club benefits its the best deal at this time. Lets not forget that there is a young boy involved in this and he deserves his break in the big time. He is a credit to himself, his family and to the club in the way he has managed the situation. He will always be a son of BCFC and we wish him well with his next steps. KRO

  • Manure, bloody hell, surprised you could even spell it.

    United should offer £25m and agree to loan him back for a season, to “support Birmingham’s rebuild”, matching the wage the Germans have offered, raising it when he’s in a United shirt.

    I’d go as far as loaning him to Dortmund if they agree to pick up his wages.

    That’s how you do it – not that it will be.

  • 20 million is a giveaway. There have been players of his age transferred at more than this 10 years ago. Not the first time we’ve taken cheap offers for our talented kids eg Jack Butland, Nathan Redmond, Demarai Gray and now Jude.
