Jude Bellingham, Borussia Dortmund, 2022/23

Borussia Dortmund will not let Jude Bellingham leave for anything less than a club-record fee, as the England midfielder remains heavily linked with Liverpool and Real Madrid.

Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and PSG have all also been touted as potential landing spots for the 19-year-old, who could be at the centre of a fierce bidding war this summer.

Bellingham is enjoying another fine season for Dortmund, who lead arch-rivals Bayern Munich by a point with nine games of the Bundesliga campaign to go; the former Birmingham City starlet has featured in all bar one league match for Edin Terzic's side this term, scoring four goals.

It goes without saying that Dortmund will want to keep hold of their star man for as long as possible – and, according to 90 Min, they intend to hold out for their highest-ever transfer fee.

For that to be the case, Bellingham would have to be sold for more than the €153m the Black and Yellows received from Barcelona for Ousmane Dembele back in 2017.

But BVB haven't given up hope of retaining one of the hottest midfielders in world football, whose current contract runs until the end of the 2024/25 season.

Will Liverpool break the bank for Bellingham?

Were Liverpool to pay such an astronomical fee for Bellingham, they would absolutely smash their own record transfer outlay, eclipsing the €96m they paid to sign Darwin Nunez from Benfica last summer.

Real Madrid, though, have previously broken the €100m barrier – when they signed Eden Hazard from Chelsea four years ago.

Never ones to shy away from splashing the cash, Real also agreed a deal worth up to €100m to secure the services of Aurelien Tchouameni from Monaco last summer.
