Liverpool target Jude Bellingham’s future will be decided next year, according to reporter Fabrizio Romano. The England international is a wanted man after impressing in the Bundesliga over recent season with Borussia Dortmund. Romano has said, as per CaughtOffside:

“There’s no asking price yet for Bellingham. It will be decided in 2023. Real Madrid will be in the race alongside Liverpool, Manchester City and also Chelsea for Bellingham; it’s still not time to negotiate with Borussia Dortmund, this will happen in 2023.

“Contacts are just on the player’s side as of now, so I wouldn’t read too much into what the club’s demands could be just yet, as it will be decided later.”
