Qatari Urges Jude Bellingham To Join Real Madrid But Jordan Henderson Isn’t Too Keen

Qatari Urges Jude Bellingham To Join Real Madrid But Jordan Henderson Isn’t Too Keen

Jude Bellingham is the talk of the town with his stunning performances for England at the FIFA World Cup. The midfielder has managed to dazzle some of the biggest names in global club football and invited attractive offers from many of them. And he’s managed to do all of this at only 19 years of age.

In fact, Jurgen Klopp is on the lookout for a worthy addition to his ageing midfield at Liverpool, and there are rumours about the club making space for Bellingham in the upcoming transfer window.

Amidst the midfielder’s staggering performance for the English side, there have also been reports of interest being generated in the city of Madrid as the Los Blancos hope to sign fresh talent for the coming season.

The fact is that according to football pundits and analysts, Bellingham could transfer for a fee well in excess of GBP 100 million given that his current side will also want to lock down the player for a while longer.

With 3 massive names from the top leagues in the world vying for the midfielder, Bellingham has a few decisions to make that could make or break his career.

That said, Liverpool midfielder, Jordan Henderson has made it crystal clear from his end that he is entirely against Jude Bellingham joining Los Blancos in a new video coming out from Qatar.

In the new footage, a Real Madrid fan strikes up an interesting conversation with Bellingham and even manages to take a cheap shot at Liverpool’s Henderson.

After noticing the English trio of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson and Jude Bellingham, the fan addresses Bellingham specifically while saying, “You are the best CM in the world. You very good. Come to Real Madrid. Come to Real Madrid.”

The fans turn their attention to Henderson, who is quick to declare, “Not to Real Madrid” and jokingly remind the Liverpool midfielder of the Reds’ loss against Real Madrid in the 2018 Champions League final.

Thankfully for the fans, Henderson doesn’t seem to take offence and even though it probably struck a nerve somewhere deep down, the Liverpool midfielder played it off with a casual guffaw at the fans’ joke.

The fan goes on to say, “If you come to Real Madrid, you will get Ballon d’Or. I think so.” To that, Bellingham maintains a straight face and remarks, “We’ll see.”

It is worth noting that as England moves into the Round of 16 after a jaw-dropping victory over Senegal, the Borussia Dortmund player’s bromance with Liverpool’s Henderson has become more and more evident.

Now it’s only a matter of time to see which club succeeds in their pursuit of the Englishman.
