According to sources, Liverpool’s upper management is skeptical that they would be able to recruit Jude Bellingham in the near future due to the player’s expected wage demands. Bellingham has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time, and Liverpool is supposed to be one among the clubs keeping tabs on his progress while he is at Dortmund.

It was rumoured earlier this summer that the Reds were considering adding a new midfielder, but they changed their minds after landing Benfica’s Darwin Nunez, who signed with the club for a record $42 million last week.
Liverpool may be unable to bring Bellingham to Anfield in a year’s time because of his predicted wage demands. Preceding his move to Real Madrid, where he is reportedly earning around £300,000 per week, it has been reported that Liverpool contemplated a deal for Aurelien Tchouameni.
Manchester United’s hopes of bolstering their midfield with Bellingham or another young player have been put on hold until next summer. A young youngster with a great athletic profile is being sought by Liverpool, and this means that Bellingham might become a top target in the near future. However, the Reds would be unwilling to satisfy any unreasonable wage demands in order to acquire him, despite the fact that a large transfer price would not be an issue.
