Nasser Al-Khelaifi, chief executive officer of Paris Saint-Germain, has heaped praise on England national football team midfielder Jude Bellingham.
Jude Bellingham is currently with the England national football team participating in the FIFA World Cup 2022. The Borussia Dortmund midfielder has been impressive for the Three Lions at Qatar World Cup 2022 as England aims to win the coveted title at the end of the month-long tournament.
Jude Bellingham has established himself as one of the best young midfielders in the world and is arguably one of the best players at FIFA World Cup 2022. The 19-year-old has been linked with a move away from Borussia Dortmund sooner or later, with many European heavyweights interested in the services of the England midfielder.
Liverpool, Manchester City and Real Madrid are among the clubs who have been linked with a move for Bellingham. The young midfielder has been playing for Borussia Dortmund since signing for the German outfit in July 2020. His current contract with Dortmund expires only in 2025. That means he has more than two years left on his current deal with the Bundesliga club.
