Manchester City can form scary duo with Jude Bellingham transfer

Manchester City have one of England’s most exciting young prospects in their ranks in the shape of Phil Foden.

As a product of City’s youth system, the 21-year-old has made 210 appearances for the club across their under-18, under-23 and senior teams. In that time, the midfielder has scored 66 goals and delivered 46 assists along the way.

Even though the club have made a big statement by securing a deal for one of Europe’s top young players in Erling Haaland, the Citizens now have the chance to sign another top talent who could go on to form a deadly pairing with Foden.

Earlier this season, the Premier League champions were linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.

Imagine Bellingham and Foden

After working his way through Birmingham City’s youth ranks and making it into their senior side, the Englishman joined the German giants two yeas ago in a deal worth an initial £25m.

Since then, the 18-year-old has gone on to make 89 appearances for the Bundesliga club across all competitions, scoring 10 goals and delivering 17 assists along the way. This shows how much of an attacking and creative threat he can offer from midfield in a similar way to Foden.

With four more league games under his belt this season than the City star, the former Birmingham prospect has racked up a higher pass completion percentage, as well as more shot-creating and goal-creating actions.

From a defensive point of view, Bellingham has made more tackles, blocks, pressures, clearances and interceptions than his fellow countryman, showing that he is perhaps a more well-rounded midfield option than Foden.

This also highlights how much of a balance the duo can have for Pep Guardiola in City’s midfield and what a scary prospect they could be if paired together in an attacking sense.

City’s new signing Haaland even claimed that it is “crazy” how good Bellingham is at such a young age, with the two having played together at Dortmund.

With Fabrizio Romano claiming that the Manchester giants will be looking to sign a midfielder this summer, it could be worth a shot for the Citizens to try and negotiate with Dortmund again to see if they would be willing to allow their English midfield talent return to his homeland and reunite with Haaland.
