Despite not being on the winning side today as Dortmund fell to a 3-2 defeat, Bellingham still managed an assist for the opener.

His appointment comes after usual captains Marco Reus and Mats Hummels were unavailable.

Bellingham has also been heavily linked with a move away from the German club.

SunSport revealed last month how Bellingham was available for an £83million transfer if the money was all paid up front.

European heavyweights such as Manchester United, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Chelsea are all interested in his services.

United’s plans for next summer will reportedly see both Bellingham and long-term target Frenkie de Jong join Erik ten Hag’s project.

Meanwhile, Liverpool and Chelsea both want the England midfielder to become the main man in their own projects as they plot midfield overhauls.

However, Real Madrid is reportedly favoured destination, and could therefore see a move to the Spanish capital materialise before a move back home does.

Manchester City also share an interest in Bellingham, with Pep Guardiola’s side wanting the teenager as the long-term replacement to the likes of Kevin De Bruyne or Ilkay Gundogan, who are both in their 30s.
