Rio Ferdinand sends Jude Bellingham's transfer request to Man U.

It is generally agreed that Bellingham is one of the best young players in the world, and he demonstrated that reputation once again on Wednesday when Borussia Dortmund routed Sevilla in the Champions League.

Rio Ferdinand, a legend with Manchester United, has pleaded with his former club, Chelsea, to bring in 19-year-old Jude Bellingham after seeing the young player shine once again in the Champions League.

Bellingham was a part of the Borussia Dortmund team that won 3-0 against Sevilla in their third game of the group stages. Bellingham played the full 90 minutes. In Dortmund's 4-1 victory, which moved them up to a comfortable second place in Group G, he was responsible for one of the team's goals and also scored one himself.

At the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium, not only did Bellingham produce a performance that earned him the man of the match award for the Bundesliga side, but he also made history by becoming the first English teenager to captain a team in the Champions League at the age of 19 years and 98 days. Bellingham was only 19 years old at the time. Already in this season's Bundesliga competition, he captained Dortmund while playing for them.

His continued impressive performances for club and country have caught the attention of several leading European sides, and a bidding war for his signature is expected to begin ahead of a potential high-paying switch next summer. His impressive performances have drawn the attention of several leading European sides.

Bellingham is expected to leave Dortmund as the German club looks to set a transfer record for an English player and is in negotiations with Liverpool and Real Madrid, who are considered to be the frontrunners in the race.

But now, Rio Ferdinand has made it clear that Manchester United should get involved in the competition by tweeting a phone emoji and tagging the Red Devils in an obvious request for them to begin negotiations. During the coverage of the Champions League on BT Sport, he praised the England international player as well.

Rio Ferdinand encouraged United to sign Bellingham.

 

"What he's accomplishing in his position, at his age, is something we haven't seen, and we stated as much as soon as we saw it. The best players of our generation, such as Lampard, Gerrard, Scholes, Vieira, and Roy Keane, weren't doing this. Neither were any of those other men "BT Sport quoted him on this.

"I'm merely pointing out that they weren't acting in this manner. He still needs to go on and prove it, and he needs to do so over a significant amount of time. On the other hand, they were not doing what he is doing at the moment. Having an impact on a match at this level, as well as leading a team at this level.

"This young man has a formidable mind and possesses all of the desirable attributes. There is no question about that. One thing you need to say about him is that whoever gets him won't have to worry about answering a question regarding his temperament.

"When it comes to large transfers, getting the temperament just right is the most important thing you can do to ensure success. This child has already demonstrated that there is no room for speculation regarding his temperament."

Within the first six minutes of the match in Seville, Bellingham was instrumental in helping Dortmund get on the scoreboard. He made a wonderful pass out wide to Raphael Guerreiro, who then scored. After that, he picked up the ball inside the box, jinked past two defenders, and poked the ball low into the net to notch his own goal and get his name on the scoresheet.

Following the resounding victory that his team had in Spain, he admitted that the responsibility of leadership that comes along with being captain is one that he takes great pleasure in. In addition to this, he praised his teammates for the assistance that they had provided him with.

"To be completely honest, it comes quite naturally. Because of their wealth of experience, my teammates make things a lot simpler for me. They are responsible for the bulk of the work, and as far as I'm concerned, the most important thing is to try to set a good example with my own performance. Everything else will fall into place from there, said Bellingham.

"However, the fact that I compete alongside such incredible individuals and players really makes it quite simple for me to just keep doing what I do," he said. I'm just trying to contribute to the success of my team. As you can see, I'm having a lot of fun with it these days.

"Every time I step onto the field, my goal is to assist Borussia Dortmund in achieving victory, and tonight I was able to do that, so I am really happy."
