Liverpool fans furious with new Jude Bellingham update – “No excuses”

With new reports claiming that it is “increasingly unlikely” that Liverpool will sign Jude Bellingham this summer, fans have been left frustrated again.

On Monday morning, The Athletic‘s David Ornstein reported that there was now “significant doubt” over the club’s chances of bringing in their No. 1 target.

Instead, Man City and Real Madrid are positioned as favourites, with Liverpool said to be reluctant to enter a “bidding war” with Europe’s elite clubs.

It is not surprising news, sadly, though it should be stressed that this is only one report and the Reds more often than not operate away from the spotlight when it comes to transfers.

Ornstein himself even explains that “it does not mean their pursuit is off,” but either way, it is far from a welcome update for Liverpool fans.

Instead, their onus was on convincing the teenager that Anfield was the right project for him, which may have taken a hit given the Reds’ miserable form this season, with a Champions League place not guaranteed.

The blame could fall at the feet of Fenway Sports Group, for sure, though as noted, it is far from over and, so far, this is only one report.

But it is certainly not the news fans will have wanted on a grey Monday morning…
