Manchester United are reported to be in pursuit of Borussia Dortmund sensational youngster, and according to Johnson, Jude Bellingham’s career would be better served by a move to Liverpool rather than Manchester United.
That’s according to Glen Johnson, who won the league title with Chelsea in 2005 and was discussing the 18-year-old’s Borussia Dortmund future.
The Blues, Manchester United, and Manchester City have all been linked with the midfielder, but the ex-defender believes another of his old teams, Liverpool, would be the best option.
When asked which club would be the greatest match for Bellingham, who will join Borussia Dortmund from Birmingham City in the summer of 2020, Johnson said: “I’d probably suggest Liverpool,” according to the Express.
“Even though Liverpool do have superstar players, they also have a smaller squad and they don’t have those superstar players sitting on their bench banging the door down, so it’s easier to keep the squad happy.
“If Jude was to make the move to Liverpool then I believe they can nurture him better than his other suitors and will give him more time as that’s what he will need.
“If he was to go to Chelsea or Manchester City and didn’t perform straight away then the pressure would be immediately on him and he would be stepped aside and somebody else would come in and take his place.
“Liverpool’s smaller squad would help him in that sense.”
