Dortmund kick off their Champions League campaign
Borussia Dortmund are currently locked in action with Turkish side Besiktas in the first game of the Champions League group stage for each club. The Black and Yellow will be looking to improve on their quarter-final exit last campaign to Manchester City, and certainly will feel that they have the tools to do so.
And despite the immense talent on show for Marco Rose’s side, it was the youngest player on the pitch who made the breakthrough. Jude Bellingham, a household name to both Premier League and England fans alike, ran onto a pass from Thomas Meunier before firing the ball past a hapless goalkeeper to give his side the lead midway through the first half.

It did not end there either for the Englishman, who broke past two challenges before putting the ball on a plate for Erling Haaland to stroke in a second goal for Dortmund.
Safe to say, his 45 minutes did not go unnoticed by those of a Premier League disposition.
Manchester United and Liverpool fans react
Bellingham, a one time Manchester United target and thought to now be on the radar of Manchester City and Liverpool, created a rare moment of unity on social media between rival fans, as all begged their respective club to chase his signature.
Would love to see Jude Bellingham in this Liverpool side.

Bellingham was the biggest miss by United in decades. That transfer will haunt the club for years to come…
What a player 👏

Liverpool we need to invest next summer if we get Bellingham all is forgiven
For a few weeks

We can all agree that if Liverpool actually go and pay €70m+ for Bellingham – not paying that for Sancho – it would be probably an amazing decision.
Can anyone see that happening though? Even with all the upside, quality and background he offers? Is it Alisson/VVD level?

I would genuinely donate a kidney for Liverpool to sign Bellingham and Haaland

It seems certain that Bellingham will depart Dortmund in the future, but where will he end up?
