Manchester United legend Roy Keane has hailed the potentials of Manchester United transfer target Jude Bellingham.

The former United captain was full of praise for the player’s performance in England’s 10-0 win over San Marino, and dubbed him as very talented.

Speaking on ITV after England’s 10–0 rout against San Marino earlier this week, Roy Keane said: “He’s got a great chance, the kid, we love everything about him.

“What he does on the pitch, the way he speaks off it, he’s playing week in, week out for a top club Borussia Dortmund. The potential in this kid is scary.

“I saw him recently playing in a Champions League game and he was producing passes… I didn’t think he had that in his locker quite yet.

“The potential for this boy, he’s a good size, he’s like a boxer, he’s a strong powerful boy. Gareth Southgate must be rubbing his hands.”

The Englishman was the subject of interest for the club and even visited the Carrington training centre with his parents.

However, Bellingham preferred a move to Borussia Dortmund instead.

Meanwhile, it is believed the club still remain interested in signing the midfielder.
