Man Utd have been given a boost in their pursuit of Jude Bellingham as Borussia Dortmund have reportedly put their summer transfer business 'on ice'.

The Birmingham youngster is being courted by both clubs ahead of a proposed £30million switch at the end of the season.

United have gone to great lengths to persuade Bellingham on a move to Old Trafford, even showing him round the club's training facilities.

But despite their efforts, Dortmund were still considered favourites to land the 16-year-old.
