Erik ten Hag would endorse a second Manchester United pitch to sign Jude Bellingham, it has been claimed.
According to a range of reports Liverpool are ending their pursuit of Bellingham as the England international would command too high a transfer fee.
While the 19-year-old was widely thought to have been Liveprool’s priority target this summer, he will likely cost well over £100million.
The Reds require several recruits this summer, having endured a poor season. In turn, the size of the Bellingham deal means the Anfield club do not consider the transfer a viable option.
However, the Manchester Evening News has claimed United manager Ten Hag would endorse a second United pitch for Bellingham.
The midfielder is a talent the Dutchman believed can create history at the club as they strive to end a championship drought.
