Jude Bellingham will be in top form at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar in the jersey of the England national team. The BVB youngster has long been the focus of international top clubs. Now there is meaningful praise from PSG boss Nassir Al-Khelaifi.
Real Madrid and Liverpool FC had already expressed an interest in BVB star Jude Bellingham before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
With Paris Saint-Germain, another top European club is now courting the 19-year-old English national player – and quite loudly at that.
“Everyone wants him, I don’t want to hide that,” said PSG boss Nassir Al-Khelaifi in an interview with the English pay-TV broadcaster “Sky Sports”, but then restricted: “But I respect that he is in his club If we want to talk to him, we’ll talk to the club first.”

PSG boss Al-Khelaifi’s praise for BVB’s midfielder could hardly be greater. “What a player. Honestly, England are lucky to have him. And he’s one of the best players of the tournament,” said Al-Khelaifi, referring to Bellingham’s strong showing at the World Cup in Qatar.

Bellingham’s market value is estimated at 100 million euros. His contract in Dortmund runs until 2025.
BVB, who signed Bellingham for 25 million euros from his youth club Birmingham City in the summer of 2020, are hoping for a transfer fee of up to 150 million euros. A sum that shouldn’t be a problem for PSG.
PSG boss Al-Khelaifi rejected speculation about a commitment from the free transfer Cristiano Ronaldo. With Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé, the Parisians are already well positioned on the offensive, emphasized the 49-year-old: “It’s very difficult with the three players we have, but I wish him all the best. He’s fantastic and he’s still an amazing player.”
