Jude Bellingham has impressed during his debut season at Birmingham City.

Manchester United have been inactive in the January transfer window but all that could change in the last ten days of the market with the Red Devils keen to finalize a deal for highly-rated Birmingham City youngster Jude Bellingham.

The young Birmingham midfielder has taken the English Championship by storm this season at the tender age of 16 and his quality has not gone unnoticed with the bigger English clubs like Manchester United.

According to The Athletic, Manchester United want to push through a £25m deal for the young player after he was scouted extensively by assistant manager Mike Phelan.

The Manchester United official was in attendance at the St. Andrew’s Stadium in December when his Birmingham City side hosted Premier League hopefuls, West Brom.

Birmingham City were beaten 3-2 at home by West Brom in the battle of the two Midlands clubs and Jude Bellingham played 74 minutes of that game.

He has four goals and one assist in 24 English Championship games.

The Birmingham City starlet can play anywhere across the midfield though his specialty is central midfield.

He has thrived under Birmingham City manager Pep Clotet this season.

Jude Bellingham has already played for the England u15, u16, and u17 teams.
