As per a report from the Manchester Evening News, in-demand Birmingham City youngster Jude Bellingham received a guided tour of Manchester United’s Carrington training base this morning, as the Red Devils attempt to steal a march on the competition for his signature.

Blues prodigy

Bellingham, a 16-year-old midfielder, came up through Birmingham’s youth ranks.

The English youth international had been viewed as one of the finest talents on the books at St. Andrew’s for some time, eventually resulting in Bellingham, despite his tender years, being introduced to the club’s first-team setup ahead of the current campaign.

And to say that the teen has since gone on to impress at senior level would be putting it lightly.

Incredibly, Bellingham has featured in all but 5 of Birmingham’s 37 Championship fixtures to this point in the campaign.

The midfielder has even chipped in with 4 goals and 2 assists across these appearances.

Man United making moves

As such, Bellingham’s impressive, but above all mature displays at the heart of the Blues’ midfield this season have inevitably resulted in speculation of late that he has been added to the respective wishlists of a number of English football’s giants.

Chief among these clubs have been Manchester United, with reports last month having gone as far as to suggest that the Red Devils had tabled a £25 million bid for the youngster:

Amid speculation that Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund have both positioned themselves firmly in the race for Bellingham, too, though, United have today moved to steal a march on the competition.

As per the aforementioned report from Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News, Bellingham was given a guided tour of the Red Devils’ Carrington training base this morning:

‘The MEN can reveal midfielder Bellingham, 16, was driven into United’s Carrington training complex by his parents on Monday morning and left in the afternoon.’

Both executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and head of corporate development Matt Judge, meanwhile, were also spotted departing Carrington later in the day, as United’s pursuit of Bellingham moves up a notch ahead of the summer transfer window.
