In a recent interview with ESPN FC, journalist Rodrigo Faez revealed that Real Madrid are hoping to begin serious talks for Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham next summer. It has been claimed that Los Blancos are eyeing a move to acquire the services of the English midfielder at the end of this campaign.
Bellingham’s Good Run Of Form In German Football This Season
Bellingham is having another impressive campaign in Germany as he has produced a run of eye-catching displays for Dortmund at the centre of the park. The 19-year-old has netted eight goals and secured two assists in 18 matches for the German club this season in various competitions.
The Stourbridge-born talent has proven himself to be a reliable performer for the German club in the middle of the park based on his average of 2.7 tackles, 1.5 interceptions, 1.0 clearances, 2.5 shots, 1.0 key passes and 2.5 dribbles per game in the Bundesliga. He has even been accurate when distributing the ball from midfield, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 82.8% in the German top tier (stats via whoscored).
Bellingham’s current deal at Signal Iduna Park is set to run out in the summer of 2025. Hence, it makes sense for Los Blancos to test the waters by launching a concrete move for the English youngster at the end of this campaign.
Is Bellingham A Dream Option For Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti?
Bellingham is a solid tackler of the ball and can sense the danger well to secure possession back for his team at the centre of the park. He usually clears the danger when the opposition are on the front foot and can strike the ball with power and precision from long range.
The English talent has got the eye to play a few decisive passes in the opponent’s half and can even complete some eye-catching dribbles going forward.
Bellingham ticks all the right boxes in terms of what is required to be a success story at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. He will fit into Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti’s playing style quite well and could even help Los Blancos challenge for even more major trophies over the next decade.
At 19, Bellingham is a generational talent who could go on to form an excellent midfield partnership with Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni at the Madrid club in the future. With all things considered, Bellingham would be a dream option for Ancelotti to consider next summer.
