Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham is a wanted man across the continent. The 19-year-old, who has scored 13 goals in over two years with the German club, is currently been monitored by as many as four top teams across Europe.

As reported by SPORT, the aforementioned teams are Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid. However, Liverpool are currently leading the race as Jurgen Klopp wants to reinforce his midfield next summer.

The Reds did sign Arthur Melo from Juventus on loan but it’s pretty much evident that the former Barcelona midfielder does not fit into their philosophy. Apart from that, his injury record isn’t great either, meaning he is only a contingency plan for Liverpool at the moment.

Bellingham is a regular starter for Borussia Dortmund and the four teams have already laid the groundwork for his arrival. To begin with, Real Madrid want the midfielder to replace Luka Modric, who at 37 years of age does not really have many years ahead of him.

Furthermore, there are rumours that despite the majority of funds being invested in the rebuilding of Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is ready to sanction a transfer budget of €400 million next year.

Manchester United, on the other hand, have been chasing Bellingham for several years. The lack of a transparent blueprint followed by managerial changes have forced them to back out.

Even so, the probability of Bellingham joining Manchester United will depend on whether or not they qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season. Chelsea, too, are involved in the race, although the recent turbulence at the club might count against them.

As far as the player is concerned, he has always thanked Dortmund for their support, saying, “The club has done a lot for me and has made me feel very welcome since I arrived and has given me opportunities to develop further. To look further and into the future would be disrespectful.”

But between today and the next summer window, a lot could change.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
