Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham has offered a huge hint over why he could snub a summer transfer to Liverpool in favour of Manchester United. 

The 19 year old midfielder is widely expected to seal a big-money transfer away from Borussia Dortmund this summer, with Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Real Madrid in the frame.

Speaking to Channel 4 as quoted by The Express, he hinted his priority is to learn from world-class midfielders: “I think there’s so much I’ve got to learn.

“The way I want to be as a midfielder is someone who can win the game at both ends of the pitch.

“In the middle, to dominate the ball as a six, as an eight, making the runs into the box, and as a 10. Creating chances as well.

“I’ve always wanted to be someone who can do a bit of everything. I think I’ve still got so much to learn, but you have the best chance with the guys in that [England] changing room and the ones at Dortmund.

“I’m like a sponge at the minute, to be honest. I just want to take everything in at any chance I get to learn about the game.”

If a crucial factor of Bellingham’s decision is where he can learn from the best, the midfielder will definitely choose Manchester United over Liverpool as the Red Devils have a world-class midfield compared to Liverpool.

United boast three midfielders elite in different aspects of the game in Casemiro, Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes.

Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and Thiago are past their best days, while Naby Keita, James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are preparing to become free agents in July.
