Birmingham City youngster Jude Bellingham is hot in demand, and the teenager is closely monitored by Manchester United, Chelsea and even German side Borussia Dortmund.

Despite being 16 and with no Premier League experience, Bellingham is already valued at £50m in the transfer market, with Birmingham keen to make as much as they can from his sale.

Manchester United legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been reportedly rumoured to draft him to the United team. However, Birmingham City manager Pep Clotet has told the youngster to forget the advances of the big side and focus on his future at Birmingham.

“I always thought he is very mature and very focused – but he has to be,” Clotet told reporters.

“Because he cannot be thinking about other things than Birmingham City – and I am sure he is only thinking about Birmingham City.

“That’s the feeling I get from him, when I speak to him and work with him.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
