Manchester United are reportedly 'vying' to secure Jude Bellingham's services this summer but view the Birmingham City midfielder as a 'bonus' signing.
The 16-year-old has been in impressive form during the 2019-20 campaign, contributing four goals and three assists in 32 Championship appearances for the Blues.
United continue to be strongly linked with the England Under-17 international, who will see his current deal at St Andrew's expire at the end of the 2020-21 season.
However, according to Sky Sports News, the Red Devils view Bellingham as a 'bonus' signing, meaning that whether he arrives or not will not impact on the club's other transfer plans.
Bellingham, who has also been linked with Borussia Dortmund, is believed to have recently been shown around the United training ground, meeting the club's legendary former boss Sir Alex Ferguson during his visit.
