In a recent report, The Daily Mail stated that Real Madrid are facing fierce competition for Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham. It is understood that Los Blancos will have to rival Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea in pursuit of the England international, who is valued at £130m by Dortmund.
Bellingham’s Impressive Run Of Form At Signal Iduna Park
Bellingham is having another fine season with the German club after putting in a series of consistent performances for them in the middle of the park. The 19-year-old has found the back of the net nine times and earned three assists in 22 matches for Dortmund during this campaign across all fronts.
The 18-time England international has been a reliable performer at both ends of the field based on his average of 3.2 tackles, 1.4 interceptions, 1.1 clearances, 2.1 shots, 1.0 key passes and 2.0 dribbles per 90 minutes in Bundesliga. Bellingham was even accurate when distributing the ball from midfield as he has completed 82.5% of his attempted passes in the German top tier (stats via whoscored).
His current contract at Signal Iduna Park is set to run out in the summer of 2025, so it is no surprise that so many top clubs including Real Madrid are hoping to recruit him next year. He even impressed for England in their 2022 FIFA World Cup opener versus Iran recently as he scored the opening goal to help his nation secure a dominant 6-2 win.
Is Bellingham A Dream Option For Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti?
Bellingham can do a little bit of everything at the centre of the park. He is a good tackler of the ball and has a knack for making some timely interceptions for his side. The English sensation doesn’t mind clearing the danger when needed and is a tidy passer of the ball as well. He is primarily a box-to-box midfielder but can also fill in as a wide player if needed.
Bellingham has developed a habit of scoring and creating his fair share of goals from midfield and can even complete some dangerous dribbles in the final third. He is currently playing at a very high level which makes him a dream option for Los Blancos to consider next year.
Bellingham is a generational talent who would inject a lot of quality into Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti‘s first XI and could serve as a brilliant successor to Luka Modric, who has entered the final stage of his career at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
