Jude Bellingham stance emerge on Liverpool summer transfer after Real Madrid thumping

Jude Bellingham is still considering joining Liverpool despite their recent string of poor performances, including a significant loss to Real Madrid at home. Liverpool is targeting the English player as their primary transfer objective for the upcoming summer window.

This is in line with manager Jurgen Klopp’s plans for a significant overhaul of the team, which seems necessary given their dismal results of late. Although Liverpool managed to win against Everton and Newcastle, their hopes for the season are uncertain.

The humiliating loss to Real Madrid, which is the worst they’ve experienced in European competition at Anfield, may have negatively impacted their chances of signing other potential targets.

Despite Liverpool’s recent poor results, The Athletic reports that Bellingham is still a big fan of Klopp and the club, and is unlikely to be deterred from joining them.

The 19-year-old midfielder is known for being highly intelligent and is expected to choose his next team based on his long-term prospects. This is good news for Liverpool, as Bellingham is not concerned about potentially missing out on playing in the Champions League for a year.

However, Liverpool’s chances of winning this year’s competition and securing an automatic place in next season’s Champions League are now unlikely, as are their prospects of finishing in the top four.

Liverpool has suffered seven defeats in the current Premier League season, which has left them in seventh place in the standings, seven points behind Tottenham, who currently occupy the final Champions League qualification position.

The team is eager to secure the signature of Bellingham, who has impressed Klopp with his performances at Borussia Dortmund. However, Liverpool will have to spend a significant amount to acquire him, as Dortmund is reportedly demanding a fee that is almost double the Reds’ current record transfer fee.

The loss to Real Madrid exposed Liverpool’s weaknesses, but they still feel that they are in the lead to sign Bellingham. However, there are concerns that they may not be able to persuade him to join Anfield. The Mirror reported on Wednesday that the Reds are worried that they may lose out on the opportunity to sign him.

Liverpool’s failure to qualify for the Champions League next season would make it more challenging for them to attract top-level players, including Bellingham.

Securing a place in the competition would also give them access to much-needed funds for a big-money transfer. Klopp will have to persuade Bellingham that he can lead Liverpool to success, although the midfielder’s admiration for the German coach may make this task easier.

Despite Liverpool being the frontrunner to sign Bellingham, the final decision will rest with the player himself in terms of which club he chooses to join in the summer.
