Englishman’s stellar start to Real Madrid career
Jude Bellingham is not just classy off the pitch, but even on it. He has already fit right in the midfield of Carlo Ancelotti’s team. The 2023 Bundesliga Player of the Year has already hit 5 goals and an assist in his first four La Liga matches. Three of those goals were winning goals, making the youngster already a big game player.
