Manchester United are thought to be extremely interested in signing the exciting prospect but £50 million is simply too much for the Red Devils to pay.
Manchester United are a club riddled and fraught with ineptitude. From the top to bottom the Red Devils are an exemplary example of how a club should not be run. Far too often in the past have the Red Devils overpaid for unproven stars who proved to be major flops. From the likes of Angel Di Maria to Radamel Falcao. The list goes on an on.
Even the hefty fee paid for Harry Maguire has raised some questions marks during recent times.
It’s something the Red Devils must avoid in the future and it is exactly why they must not pay the extremely ludicrous asking price demanded by Birmingham City for their star player Jude Bellingham.

Of course Jude Bellingham is an exceptional talent. The 16 year old has stood head and shoulders above the rest at Birmingham City so far this season and has shone in a division playing against players almost twice his age.
His energy and technical ability has given him all the tools to become a future superstar.
Yet his £50 million price tag is too much of a gamble for the Red Devils. The club has already committed too many blunders in the transfer market recently. They absolutely cannot afford to make another one.
So regardless of his quality and the heaps of potential which he could offer, United should try to steer clear of the Jude Bellingham bidding war this summer.
The Red Devils will certainly need midfield additions but there are much cheaper options available in the market right now such as the likes of Jack Grealish who could end up becoming just as good as Bellingham for United and is already proven at Premier League level.
