Real Madrid’s investment in England’s Jude Bellingham seems to have paid off handsomely, as the young midfielder continues to impress at the Santiago Bernabéu.
The initial transfer fee of €103m, potentially rising to nearly €134m with add-ons, raised eyebrows when Bellingham moved from Borussia Dortmund to Real Madrid. However, the 20-year-old has justified the hefty price tag with stellar performances.
Having made a name for himself at Birmingham City before Dortmund snapped him up for £25m in 2020, Bellingham quickly established himself in Germany. His tenure at Signal Iduna Park saw him score 24 goals in 132 appearances while also earning his stripes with the English national team under Gareth Southgate.
Since joining Real Madrid last summer, Bellingham has been in scintillating form in La Liga. With 20 goals in 29 games across all competitions, he’s been a driving force behind Real’s success.
In a recent La Liga match against Girona, Bellingham showcased his prowess with a brace as Real secured a convincing 4-0 victory. His contributions have been pivotal in maintaining Real’s lead atop the league table.
Teammate Vinícius Júnior lauded Bellingham’s impact, hailing him as a “star” and emphasizing his goal-scoring prowess. Bellingham’s two goals in the match marked a significant milestone, making him the first Real Madrid midfielder in the 21st century to score over 15 goals in a single La Liga season.
Following his remarkable performance, social media buzzed with admiration for Bellingham’s talent. Despite sustaining an injury during the game, fans are hopeful that he’ll return to action soon to continue mesmerizing audiences with his remarkable abilities.
