‘This guy has the mentality. He is already one of the captains of the team, that is quite impressive. It’s about the whole package. He’s already in the national team. We know the quality he has.’ 

Bellingham was arguably man of the match when City beat Dortmund at the Etihad Stadium earlier in the season and scored twice during the 5-0 weekend victory over Stuttgart. His manager, Edin Terzic, believes he is wise beyond his years.

‘I have been lucky enough to work with Declan Rice at West Ham and I think both of them are really talented and they are going to dominate English football in terms of the midfield positions for the next decade.’
