United are one of his main admirers but as things stand, Liverpool seem to have the upper hand, having been in regular contact with his father Mark over a move to Anfield.
United can beat Liverpool to Bellingham with UCL football
Liverpool are looking to push through a deal for Bellingham, but ultimately his next destination could be based on the sporting project as well as Champions League qualification.
At the moment, Jurgen Klopp’s side are well off the pace in the top-four pursuit. They are lagging ten points behind and have a huge mountain to climb in the back end of the season.
On the other hand, United are in a solid position in fourth. They are already six points ahead of fifth-place Tottenham Hotspur with a game in hand. Spurs are also in a poor run of form.
Hence, United seem most likely to qualify for the Champions League with the Reds missing out. This should provide them with a huge advantage over their arch-rivals in Bellingham’s pursuit.
United have the financial firepower to outbid the Reds to Bellingham if they wish to do so. They can also make him one of their highest earners and pay more than what Liverpool could offer.
