Manchester United secured their place in the quarter-finals of the Europa League with a 1-0 last 16 second-leg win over Real Betis on Thursday. 

The Red Devils travelled to Seville with a three goal advantage following their 4-1 win over their Spanish opponents last week, and a goal from Marcus Rashford was enough to ensure progression.

Now, Erik ten Hag’s side must turn their attention to their FA Cup quarter-final against Fulham on Sunday.

Having already lifted the Carabao Cup, United remain in contention to win three trophies this season, while they also have a mathematical chance of winning the Premier League title.

Despite their fine form, it appears that manager Ten Hag is still keen to bolster his squad, and United have now entered into the race to sign one of Europe’s most in-demand players.

As per The Telegraph, United are ready to join the race to land Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.

The England international is set to be the subject of a huge amount of interest this summer, and it is claimed that Dortmund will demand more than £110 million for the star.

Bellingham could be in line for a huge move to the Premier League

The 19-year-old has been in fine form for Dortmund this season, helping the German side to rival Bayern Munich for the Bundesliga title.

Manchester City, Liverpool and Real Madrid are said to be among the clubs most interested in Bellingham, while Chelsea were previously linked with the Englishman but have since signed Enzo Fernandez from Benfica for a Premier League record fee of £107 million.

Bellingham joined Dortmund from Championship side Birmingham City back in 2020 and has since made more than 120 appearances for the German side.

The teenager has captained Dortmund on a number of occasions, and has also established himself as a regular for England.

Despite significant interest from elsewhere, it is claimed that Dortmund remain intent on keeping hold of Bellingham for at least one more season.

The player is contracted to his current side until 2025, which puts Dortmund in a commanding position during potential negotiations.

It is also claimed that talks over the midfielder’s future are progressing, with a decision on his future likely to be made in the coming weeks.
