Liverpool legend Steve Nicol tips Jude Bellingham to sign for Real Madrid
Speaking on the 19-year-old’s options for a transfer away from Borussia Dortmund, the ex-Reds legend believes every top team in the world would want a player like Bellingham in their side.
“I’d think he’s got the pick of whatever he fancies, any side with any ambition to be successful will want Jude Bellingham and I think he’ll get the pick.”
Nicol also feels that if the young midfielder has the choice of signing for Madrid, the Santiago Bernabeu would be a compelling destination.
“If it’s Real Madrid, why would you not go to Real Madrid?”
Liverpool a compelling destination for Bellingham
Currently one of the two best sides in England, and some fans might argue the world, Liverpool have gone from strength to strength under Jurgen Klopp. We’ve won every possible trophy under the German boss and look hungry for more.
The Reds have competed in three Champions League finals in the last five seasons. Domestically, the Merseyside club have been able to go toe to toe against Manchester City, something that other sides have been unable to do so.
The 19-year-old Englishman has a long way to go in his career still. The youngster played for Birmingham City in the Championship before moving to Germany in 2020.

Reds fans will feel the allure of playing in one of Premier League’s best sides alongside English compatriots under one of the best managers of this generation is a compelling option for Bellingham as well.
