"I see that he [Bellingham] is going to leave Borussia [Dortmund] shortly, for Real Madrid or a Premier League team, which is where there is money," Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus has told Marca.

"If they don't have money, the only club that can sign him is Barca, who don't have a single euro but still sign Lewandowski," the 61-year-old added, laughing.

Great irony, Lothar! Finally, someone starts realising the strength of Joan Laporta's economic levers.

Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester City are said to be the best-positioned sides to land Jude Bellingham next year. It seems like Barcelona will not be able to spend around €150m on the 19-year-old.

The wonderkid has scored 10 goals and provided 4 assists for Borussia Dortmund this season.
