Imagine being a bright eyed 16 year old and meeting the old piss can to listen to a slurry sales pitch. Bellingham would be 8 or so years old when twatty retired. It would be like being penned in and forced to listen to your great uncles rambles at a family gathering.He visited City and United on the same day with his parents. He's hardly an unknown.
United even rolled out Ferguson at Carrington to really lay it on thick. United were actually willing to pay £35m upfront for a 16-year-old plus £10m in add-ons.
Thankfully, he listens to his mum and that was a let-off for us.
You mean a bit of a shame except for all of the players that don't go to the Bundesliga to make a name for themselves?It's a bit of a shame for English football that guys of this talent (and Sancho) are seeing that the best way for them to make a name and get a go is in Bundesliga. But its undoubtedly worked for both of them and it's probably added a lot to their game, seeing a different type of football. As it is right now, i think another season at Dortmund as a regular would benefit him greatly, although i'm sure he'll crave Champs League football now.
All (presumably all, anyway) of the clubs saw the 'promise' in him. He just decided that his best chance of progression was at Dortmund. Fair dinkum on the lad for being brave enough to move countries to achieve it.I have to say to whoever saw the promise in this kid at dortmund deserves a pat on the back that's top scouting
