In a recent report, Estadio Deportivo stated that Real Madrid are well-positioned to sign Borussia Dortmund playmaker Jude Bellingham. It has been claimed that Los Blancos are eyeing a move for the England international in the future.
Bellingham’s Excellent Form In German Football Last Season
Bellingham had a fabulous campaign at Signal Iduna Park as he was responsible for producing several match-winning displays at the heart of Dortmund’s midfield. The gifted midfielder netted six goals and earned 14 assists in 43 matches for the German club last season across various competitions.
The 19-year-old was a joy to watch at the centre of the park after he averaged 1.6 tackles, 1.3 interceptions, 0.9 clearances, 1.4 shots, 1.2 interceptions and 1.7 dribbles per 90 minutes in Bundesliga. He was even tidy when distributing the ball from midfield based on his pass completion rate of 83.7% in the German first division (stats via whoscored).
Is Bellingham A Dream Signing For Real Madrid Head Coach Carlo Ancelotti?
Bellingham is usually full of energy at the centre of the park and can provide decent protection for his teammates at the back. He has got the vision to unlock the opposition defence with a decisive pass and can make some dangerous runs towards their penalty area. Bellingham is primarily a box-to-box midfielder but can even fill in as a winger on either flank if needed.
The English sensation can even chip in by scoring a handful of important goals for his team in the final third. Bellingham is a generational talent, so Los Blancos should focus on getting him on board either this summer or at the end of next season.
At 19, the future looks quite promising for the Dortmund whizkid. Hence, he will be a major coup for Real Madrid as he would strengthen their midfield considerably for the future. Bellingham has what it takes to serve as a great, long-term successor to Luka Modric at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. With all things considered, the English talent will be a dream signing for the Madrid giants if they can find a way to win the race for his services.
