Jude Bellingham has been encouraged to choose Manchester United over Manchester City if given the option of either transfer in the future.
The midfielder starred for England in both Nations League matches during the international break, playing the full 90 minutes against Italy and Germany. The Borussia Dortmund vice-captain is reportedly being tracked by a number of European giants ahead of an expected battle for his signature next summer.
United and City have both been linked with the 19-year-old, along with the likes of Real Madrid and Liverpool. Bellingham is a central figure for Dortmund and is set to play a pivotal role for England in this winter’s World Cup.
He is not backed to make a transfer in January but could be on the move after the conclusion of the season. Former United goalkeeper Ben Foster says he believes Bellingham would be better off at United than City, saying he’d enjoy being “the main man” there.
He suggests the teenager would “fade” if he secured a move to the Etihad. Speaking on his YouTube channel, he said: “For me personally, I would love to see him go to Manchester United.
“I think he would thrive more at Manchester United, he’d have more responsibility and I think he would enjoy it there more. I think he would know he’s the main man.
“I worry that if he went to a club like Man City he might just sort of [end up] a little like Jack Grealish. He would just fade a little bit at Manchester City. So I would love him at Manchester United, I think he would smash it.”
