BAYERN MUNICH will not join Manchester United in the race to sign Jude Bellingham, according to reports in Germany.

Bild's Christian Falk suggests there is no truth in the rumours the newly-crowned Bundesliga champs have become the latest club to show interest in Birmingham ace Bellingham.

The reason being the Bavarian bosses "know" Borussia Dortmund have an agreement with the 16-year-old star.

The English youngster looks set to follow in the footsteps of Jadon Sanchoby quitting the UK to move to Bundesliga side Dortmund.

A number of clubs have been circling around the highly-rated youngster including Chelsea and United.

The Red Devils pulled out all the stops to try and lure the midfielder to Old Trafford, including a special trip to Carrington.

But recent reports suggested the whizzkid was ready to reject the Premier League giants in order to put pen to paper on a £20million deal to join Dortmund.
