Jack Grealish left eagle-eyed fans excited on social media after they spotted the Manchester City star’s cheeky message to England teammate Jude Bellingham.
Bellingham has become one of Europe’s fastest-rising stars after his impact at Borussia Dortmund and his performances for England at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Dortmund face a tough test in keeping hold of the 19-year-old midfielder in the summer transfer window, with Europe’s elite clubs keen to snap up Bellingham.
Bellingham, who is under contract with Dortmund until 2025, has been linked with the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Chelsea.
Despite intense transfer speculation from Europe’s biggest teams, Bellingham has hilariously been urged to move to City by England teammate Grealish.
Bellingham was spotted in the comments of Manuel Akanji’s Instagram post, with the England star tagging Dortmund teammate Gio Reyna.
“He’s changed,” Bellingham wrote, adding a shocked emoji face.
Grealish wasted no time in replying to the Dortmund midfielder by telling him to make a move to the Etihad.
The 27-year-old City star wrote to Bellingham: “Come to City xx.”

A third added: “You have already said everything, the future is in the city.”
“Without any hesitation, agent Jack for duty,” a fourth posted.
While one fan wrote: “My boy is cooking.”
Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl has played down speculation surrounding Bellingham and insisted that the Three Lions international is happy at the club.
“This is the big thing at the moment, of course. He still has a contract and he is very focused on football,” he told BT Sport.
“He’s very focused on Borussia Dortmund and this team — we’re happy to have him.”
