On the other hand, Jude Bellingham of Borussia Dortmund is a player they have been widely connected with over the previous few months as their top priority for the next summer transfer window. But it looks that Chelsea dealt them a setback early on in the competition for the English midfielder.
Chelsea has reportedly approached Borussia Dortmund about a transfer for next summer, according to Sport Bild (via Bulinews). With “The Blues” reportedly already in contact with Bellingham’s entourage, Todd Boehly is thought to have made the signing of Bellingham his top priority.

Therefore, it appears like Chelsea is acting quickly to attempt and edge out the competition for Bellingham’s signature.
And it should be noted that, despite the shift in ownership during a protracted and prosperous period under Roman Abramovich, the Premier League’s heavyweights have not shied away from splashing the cash.
If they are successful in winning the contest for Bellingham remains to be seen. Although they are Real Madrid’s main rivals, other teams like Liverpool, Manchester United, and Manchester City are all thought to be interested in the young player.
