It is believed Bellingham’s transfer to Borussia Dortmund would have been completed sooner if not for the coronavirus outbreak but Dortmund remain confident of landing the talented 16-year-old midfielder.

According to Bild, talks between Borussia Dortmund and the representatives of Bellingham were at an advanced stage before the coronavirus pandemic and it is unclear when they will resume given lockdown measures.

Bellingham chose Borussia Dortmund over Chelsea and Manchester United because he believes he will get more playing time at the German club.
