Borussia Dortmund also has to tighten their belts these days. A transfer of dream player Jude Bellingham threatens to become a hanging game.
Over the weekend, a message from England made wide, which should have included the BVB responsible with relief: Manchester United will from the poker for top talent Jew Bellingham (16, Birmingham City) have withdrawn .
Anyone who now assumes that the envisaged obligation will be a sure-fire success for Dortmund is wrong.
BVB must also pay redemption wisely during these times. Without the crisis, the activation of Bellingham’s exit clause for a sum of 35 million euros would not have been a problem. As reported by ‘Sport Bild’, Borussia can no longer pay this amount as of now.
That is why those responsible want to start much deeper. According to the journal, they sent an offer for 20 million euros to Birmingham. The fact that the heavily wealthy Chinese owners of the second division club agree to such a large corona discount must at least be questioned. Further rounds of negotiations seem inevitable. Dortmund must hope that other clubs will not reactivate their interest in Bellingham in the course of this and submit even better offers.
