Borussia Dortmund ‘will offer £130m-rated Jude Bellingham a club-record deal worth more than £13m-a-year’ in a desperate attempt to keep him amid Liverpool, Man City and Real Madrid interest
Borussia Dortmund will make Jude Bellingham one final big-money offer in a bid to persuade him to stay at the club this summer, according to reports in Germany.
But, according to Bild, the German side are preparing a last-ditch offer worth £13.25million-a-year – that would see Bellingham become the highest-paid player in the club’s history – in a desperate bid to keep him.

Talks are said to be planned with Bellingham’s adviser Mark Bennett – a friend of the England star’s family – for March at the latest.
Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke and sporting director Sebastian Kehl are ‘fighting’ to convince him to stay in the Bundesliga for one more year.
Bellingham’s current deal expires in summer 2025, with Watzke and Kehl hoping to see the teenager extend his contract until 2026.

The new terms would see Bellingham eclipse the salary earnt by captain Marco Reus, 33, who has made 368 appearances in all competitions for the Black and Yellows.
The 22-cap international would almost certainly earn far more in England or Spain than he is at Signal Iduna Park.
But if Bellingham does leave the club, this summer or later, Dortmund are likely to command a potential fee of around £130m.
