Chelsea, Arsenal and Man Utd in battle to sign teenage sensation

Chelsea are Arsenal are going up against Manchester United in a battle to sign Birmingham City’s teenage sensation Jude Bellingham, according to reports.

United have been linked with the 16-year-old, who cannot be given a professional contract until he turns 17 in June.

And The Sun on Sunday say United are willing to offer £15m for him in order to fend off a late move from Chelsea.

The Daily Star Sunday, meanwhile, suggest Arsenal are keen to snap Bellingham up.

Birmingham head coach Pep Clotet admitted he was unsure whether Bellingham will be staying at the Championship club after he scored in their 1-1 draw against Cardiff City at St Andrew’s.

“I don’t know. I do have the feeling Jude will stay,” Clotet said, as reported by Sky Sports.

“He is very happy here and he knows it’s one of the right steps for his progression. He has played more than 20 games for us and that has a value.

“He has been watched since he was 13 or 14. For the Middlesbrough game, half of Europe was here. He is used to it.

“Jude is very focused on his job and I have never seen him distracted.”
