to be honest i think no news is good news. If there had been a pre contract agreement in place with Dortmund or Man Utd for him to leave for a nominal fee on his 17th birthday i think it would have been announced by the team signing him never mind Blues. I think the silence suggests he has signed the contract with us and will then leave in the next few weeks as others have intimated

The flaw in that argument is, you don't think the Club would be trumpeting that we have a signed a once in a generation talent?

No it doesn't, just the reverse, it would make us look businesslike, its been in public domain about Dortmund or Man U since lockdown!

Maybe his parents just told everyone to flip off yesterday so he could enjoy some sort of normal birthday.

Is it?

If they announce Jude signs a deal and then is sold a week later how do you think that would go down?

There may well be reasons not to shout it from the roof tops

Some people on here even know which one (out of Jude & Jobe) is getting the top bunk in their new bedroom in Dortmund.


It was all on here last week. Fact.

Jude is going to sign a contract and be sold. What's the point in announcing it by piecemeal? Might as well wait until the whole thing has been agreed and then announce that Bellingham has signed for [Insert Club], with a massive thank you to him and the family for guaranteeing a record transfer fee by agreeing to professional terms. Job done.

Your getting all het up about them not announcing something on his birthday, they'll announce it when they're ready.

My word you have got the wrong end of the stick, get him signed up, then let a bidding war begin, that’s how you push up the price, I’m fearing the worse on this, bear in mind we could end up with 200k as compile if no signature!

DES, ever considered Jude might have told the club he will ONLY sign a deal if we sell him to where he wants to go?

Jude and his family hold all the aces here.
