Chelsea in Jude Bellingham transfer blow as Dortmund make 17-year-old wonderkid 'untouchable' in summer

BORUSSIA DORTMUND will not sell 'untouchable' Jude Bellingham this summer, according to reports.

The English teenager has been linked with the likes of Chelsea, having impressed in his debut Bundesliga season.

But if Dortmund have their way, the former Birmingham City starlet will be going nowhere.

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano claims that Dortmund consider Bellingham, 17, 'untouchable' going into the summer window.

And the Italian 'expects' the German giants to keep their wonderkid this summer.

Bellingham burst on to the scene as a 16-year-old for boyhood club Birmingham last season, making 41 appearances in the Championship.

His performances drew interest from Manchester United, with the Red Devils having been desperate to secure the midfielder's signature.

But Dortmund beat them in the race, shelling out an initial £25million for Bellingham's services.

Such was his impact at St Andrews, that Blues bizarrely retired his No22 shirt following his departure.

He has hit the ground running in Germany, already tallying up 41 appearances for Borussia Dortmund.


And he recently impressed English football fans once again, when he scored a composed finish against Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals.

His talent has already drawn international recognition, winning two caps for Gareth Southgate's Three Lions.

And his displays for Dortmund have put him in a fantastic position to make it into Southgate's Euro 2020 squad this summer.
