ENGLAND – Manchester United are close to signing Birmingham starlet, Jude Bellingham, after offering £25million, the Daily Record reports.
The 16-year-old has made 24 appearances in all competitions for the Championship outfit so far this season.
Several clubs across Europe are also believed to be keen on Bellingham, following a couple of fine performances for Birmingham.
United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is desperate to broaden his options in midfield after losing both Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay to injury.
And the Norwegian has placed emphasis on focusing on youthful homegrown talent.
Bellingham can play either centrally or out wide.
