According to reports, Manchester United want to sign the Birmingham City star in the summer, and he could be the perfect signing for the Red Devils.

Raw talent is hard to spot. It’s a rare trait, and those few men who have the eye for it are pivotal cogs in every team’s structure. The scout who spotted Jude Bellingham is a great example of exactly that. The 16 year old looks a unique and potentially generational talent. With Manchester United purportedly relentless in their pursuit to try to land the young midfielder, Birmingham are guaranteed to make a hefty profit on the young man.

It began simply for the 16 year old. Last summer Bellingham was invited on Birmingham’s pre-season tour. The player must have been brimming with pride. He probably did not expect to feature as often as he did, but the Birmingham City manager, Pep Clotet recognised something special in the midfielder and gave Bellingham a surprising opportunity.

Even more unprecedented was when Bellingham was named in the starting eleven on Birmingham’s seventh game of the Championships season against Stoke City.

Nobody had expected him to score.

It was a deflected shot which careened off of a Stoke City defender and slowly rolled into the corner of the net.

A fortuitous goal but the history books will not care. Bellingham scored on his first competitive start for Birmingham. It was a winning goal to secure a 2-1 victory over Stoke..

He scored the only goal in the game against Charlton Athletic the week later and Bellingham has not looked back since.

The 16 year old’s work rate is tremendous. Jude Bellingham is blessed with phenomenal technical ability and he could without a shadow of a doubt be the next big thing to come out of England.

Bellingham is fast, he can dribble past opponents with ease and he’s played across every midfield position for Birmingham City this season.

United have been heavily linked with the young talent, and the Red Devils should do everything in their power to lure Bellingham to Old Trafford.

The youngster fits the mould of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer philosophy built on bringing through youth and establishing a new dynasty.

On top of that, he is exactly what the Red Devils lack in the midfield. Someone with guile and technique. Bellingham could even be a long term replacement for Paul Pogba.

If the Red Devils do not make a move for the 16 year old this summer, they will rue their mistake.

Next. United are still desperate to sign this world-class striker. dark

Do you think Jude Bellingham can become as good as Paul Pogba?
