Well, you should never totally give up hope.
But it appears as though some fans have very much reached that point when it comes to one man’s future at the club.
With Jude Bellingham very highly touted by some of the major clubs in world football, with some reports putting his value as high as £30m and Birmingham City not exactly in the greatest situation financially, it does seem somewhat inevitable that he will leave.
However, there is always the chance that things don’t work out that way. For instance, a report from German outfit Kicker Borussia Dortmund might not be in a position to continue their chase of the 16-year-old after all, although as I explained a few months ago that might also mean that Manchester United don’t come after him either meaning he stays a Blue for another year.
Do you care what club Jude Bellingham goes to if/when he leaves?
There is also the potential that he is loaned back to us for next season if clubs don’t think he’s totally ready for regular first-team football.
But despite those options when @Blues_HQ posed the question on social media yesterday on whether there was any chance that he could be a Blue during 2020/21, there wasn’t a lot of positivity going around, with most fans believing that any deal would very much be a short-term one.
Might do cus clubs with all the money they’ve lost due to the virus might not have the cash flow to do the deals they had planned HOPEFULLY 💙💙💙💙🤞

No.Not unless he’s loaned back to us.

I think he will be sold this summer but I hope he plays for us on loan next year. Win/ win situation.

Depends on what fee Blues are asking, we don’t really know do we? It ranges from 30-50 Mill plus we look set to lose Jobe too in the process. Blues should be asking 80 million especially if we lose both the kids #BCFC #kro

Definitely think if he signs for a big club that they could/should loan him back. He will only be 17 and best will in the world, I don’t think he’s making the first team regularly at a top six club next year.

No chance we’ll definitely need that money,I can’t see any of it being put back in the team either.

Sadly no, I worry we’ve already seen him for the last time in a Blues shirt at St Andrew’s.

What about you? Do you think there’s any chance that he plays for us in some capacity next season?
