Man City target Jude Bellingham ‘set for crunch talks’ with Borussia Dortmund and more transfer rumours

As reported by AS, the 19-year-old is preparing to tell Dortmund that he plans to leave the club in the summer, with a meeting expected to take place before January 6. It comes as the German outfit are set to travel to Marbella for a week-long winter training camp ahead of the resumption of the season.

Dortmund are &apos95% sure&apos that Bellingham will inform them of his desire to leave, and would seek an initial 100m fee for the player, as well as several add-ons that could take his total price to around 140m. The England international is under contract until 2025, but he is not expected to sign a new deal with the Bundesliga giants.

Bellingham has scored nine goals in all competitions for Dortmund so far this season, also registering three assists. AS also add that Madrid are in pole position to secure his signature, but that City and Liverpool are keen on the midfielder.

Elsewhere, the Daily Mail have reported that the Blues are planning to reward Rico Lewis with a new contract after the 18-year-old broke into Pep Guardiola&aposs first team in recent months.

The young full-back has started in each of City&aposs three matches after the World Cup and has impressed since making his debut against Bournemouth in August. While he has still got more than four years to run on his current deal, City are keen to hand the player a new deal in the coming weeks.
