According to Football Insider (via Liverpool Echo), the Reds and Jude Bellingham of Borussia Dortmund have verbally agreed that he will join the team as soon as the January transfer window opens.
Given that losing two of a team’s greatest players in a single transfer window is unprecedented, Dortmund was reluctant to trade Bellingham this summer following the earlier-mentioned move of Erling Haaland to Manchester City.
The rumors claim that it is quite likely that Liverpool will be able to negotiate a deal behind the scenes that will allow them to sign the 19-year-old as soon as January 2023. Despite the alleged agreement, a move in the summer of 2023 is more probable than one in the month of January.
Ajax demands 100 million euros for Antony
Ajax is reportedly asking for €100 million from Manchester United to transfer Antony.

Martial set for Man United contract talks
According to The Sun, Anthony Martial will meet with Manchester United to discuss a new long-term contract.
The Frenchman had a very limited role with the Red Devils throughout the first part of the previous campaign, and at the start of this year, he was loaned to Sevilla. There were rumors that United may move him after a disappointing stint in La Liga, but things have worked out differently.
The 26-year-old was in excellent form during preseason under new boss Erik ten Hag, scoring three goals in only five games. Despite missing most of the new season due to injury, he came on as a substitute in the most recent 2-1 victory over Liverpool and contributed the game-winning assist.
According to recent reports, the club and Martial, who has less than two years left on his present contract, intend to discuss a new agreement.
