Jude Bellingham is considered to be one of the most promising young players in England. No wonder Bayern also wanted him – and of course offered considerably more salary than BVB.

BVB hopes that Jude Bellingham has apparently decided to move to Dortmund, despite a significantly better offer from Munich. This reports the newspaper “Bild”.
Accordingly, in the weeks before the 17-year-old’s signature, the Munich team threw everything back on the balance sheet – offering the midfielder a whopping 1.5 million euros more annual salary than BVB. Bellingham could have made 4.5 million euros at Bayern, ‘only’ three million in Dortmund.
But the appeal of Munich, which sports director Hasan Salihamidzic and chief explorer Marco Neppe should have submitted to the young star’s family in a face-to-face, could no longer change the England national team under 17. He explains his decision for BVB as follows: “There is no better club in the world that creates young talents and takes them to the next career move.”
According to the report, BVB manager Michael Zorc and his scouts had previously worked for Bellingham for two and a half years, impressed the young talent with videos of the atmosphere on the South Stand, and never let them break off contact with his family. With success: the 17-year-old signed for five years in Dortmund last week. BVB will transfer approximately 25 million euros for him to Birmingham.
