    Bundesliga News: ‘Everybody wants Bellingham’ – PSG president takes aim at England star

    Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has confirmed that the Ligue 1 champions would like to sign England midfielder Jude Bellingham.

    The 19-year-old Borussia Dortmund has been one of the stars of this year’s World Cup and a slew of European giants are reportedly interested in signing him.

    Bellingham scored England’s first goal of the tournament in a 6-2 thrashing of Iran in the group stage, and made yet another masterful display in midfield in Sunday’s round of 16 win over Senegal.

    The former Birmingham City player leads his teammates in dribbles completed (six) and possession (23) in Qatar, while only Luke Shaw (72) improved his tally of 48 passes completed in the final third.

    His all-round ability has been touted as a contender for the tournament’s best young player and Al-Khelaifi has admitted he would like to lead him to the Ligue 1 champions.

    “An amazing player – what a player,” Al-Khelaifi told Sky News. “Honestly, England was lucky to have him. He is one of the best players in the tournament. Surprisingly – his first world championship. He is calm and relaxed, confident in himself.

    Asked if PSG would like to sign Bellingham, Al-Khelaifi said: “Everyone wants him, I’m not going to hide it. He is in his club and respected, so if we want to talk to him, we will first talk to the club.”

    Bellingham will next play on Saturday when England face France in a mouth-watering quarter-final clash.
