Jude Bellingham is a rumoured £30m target for Manchester United, despite only making his senior debut for Birmingham City earlier this season.

Manchester United are reportedly ready to offer £30m to snap up teenage midfielder Jude Bellingham from Birmingham City.

The 16-year-old has emerged as a target for numerous Premier League and European clubs, despite featuring just 24 times for the Blues in his breakthrough season.

Birmingham boss Pep Clotet has refused to rule out a sale, but The Sun suggests that it will take a huge offer to prise him away from St Andrew's.

Amid rumoured interest from the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, the report indicates that United are keen to get to Bellingham's signature first.

That could mean paying up the mammoth sum Birmingham are after, making him one of the most expensive teenage signings in British football history, behind the likes of Red Devils pair Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial.

Bellingham joined Birmingham as a seven-year old and has been capped three times by England at Under-17s level.
