Dortmund willing to sell Jude Bellingham as they can't compete with elite club wages

Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke says Jude Bellingham will be allowed to leave the club at the end of the season.

Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Real Madrid are all reportedly interested in the 19-year-old.

Watzke admitted that Dortmund are not in a position to compete financially with the wages these interested parties can offer the England international.

"We will hold talks now, as soon as [the World Cup in] Qatar is over, and then we'll have a fundamental talk about what he would like," said Watzke.

"He just needs to tell us if he'd like to stay or if he'd like to go. In both cases we'll talk about it very pleasantly and reasonably together.

"In general we can imagine that he'd stay with us, but we can't behave as if this topic wasn't on the table.

"If he says 'I'd like to do something else,' then the really big [clubs] in Europe will be there and we can't afford to fight financially."

The BVB are reportedly looking for around €100 million to sell Bellingham, but some have reported that this fee could rise to €150m.

Bellingham's current contract runs until 2025.

He's scored nine goals in 22 appearances for Dortmund across all competitions this season.
