Jude Bellingham’s parents were spotted leaving Manchester United’s Carrington training ground amid speculation the Birmingham City midfielder will sign for the club.
Bellingham, 16, has enjoyed a remarkable breakthrough season for the Championship side and became the club’s youngest ever first-team appearance maker as well as their youngest goalscorer.
His remarkable form has seen him linked with a move to Europe’s biggest clubs, with Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and United all believed to be targeting a summer move.
But it appears Manchester United have stolen a march on their opposition as his parents met with club officials on Monday.
It’s believed that Bellingham was also present, but can’t be seen in the backseat of the car driving away.
United are believed to be ready to pay £50million for his services and he is reportedly set to be offered £100,000-a-week to sign for the club.
An hour after he and his parents were whizzed away from the training ground, United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and transfer guru Matt Judge were also seen to be leaving.
Bellingham currently earns £145-a-week and can’t officially put pen to paper on a professional contract until he turns 17 in June.
