Borussia Dortmund to break transfer record for £30m Jude Bellingham – it won’t be long before they sell him for £100m – The Sun03/04/2020
BORUSSIA DORTMUND are set to break their transfer record for £30million Birmingham star Jude Bellingham – but how long will it be before they sell him for three times that.
The Bundesliga giants are said to be beating Manchester United and Chelsea in the race to land the 16-year-old midfielder.
And they will have to break their club record fee of £27.5m – on Mats Hummels last summer – to land their man.
These days it seems Dortmund are always the bridesmaids and never the bride, perennially missing out on the Bundesliga title to Bayern Munich.
Dortmund haven't won the top-flight since 2011-12, having won it just three times this century.
And while they are incredible at unearthing young talent, their selling mentality may be holding them back.
Hummels, for one, was sold to Bayern Munich at the peak of his powers, where the centre-back spent seven trophy-laden years.
He was then bought back cheaper than he was sold.
Sound familiar? That's because they did the very same thing with Mario Gotze.
The Germany playmaker was sold for £33.3m at the height of his career, before being brought back for nearly half the price three years later.
The latest hot transfer news coming out of the Westfalenstadion revolves around England star Jadon Sancho.
The wing wizard, 19, was signed from Manchester City's youth team in 2017 and quickly established himself as one of their top players.
