Quietly, decisively, quickly and effectively is the way to help Real Madrid ‘close the deal’ of blockbuster Jude Bellingham. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano and a series of other reputable sources confirmed that Bellingham will wear the Los Blancos shirt after this year’s season ends.
Thus, the Spanish football giant step by step looks to the future when recruiting young, potential stars. Bellingham promises to become a piece worth waiting for in the midfield next to Luka Modric, Fede Valverde, Toni Kroos or Aurelien Tchouameni.
Over the past few seasons, Real Madrid has focused on planning and acquiring the brightest raw gems. Last summer, Tchouameni (23), signed a six-year contract in a £68m deal from AS Monaco.
A year earlier, Eduardo Camavinga (20 years old) arrived at Real from Rennes for a sum of £ 35 million. Another notable factor, Federico Valverde (24 years old) is considered the future captain with nearly 200 times for Real.
Besides the young elements, coach Carlo Ancelotti also owns in the squad two seasoned veterans in the midfield: Luka Modric (37 years old) and Toni Kroos (33 years old).
Real Madrid has the perfect combination of youth and experience. Dani Ceballos (26 years old) is another bright ‘young talent’ in the hands of Ancelotti this season.
So is Real Madrid really the right destination for Bellingham? Can the English midfielder occupy a starting position in the first team?
LaLigaTV host Semra Hunter told Sky Sports News: “I think Real Madrid is a good fit for him. However, is Bellingham straight into the squad? I do not think so”.
Bellingham promises to spark a fierce position battle in Real Madrid’s shirt. Kroos, Modric received great trust from Ancelotti in top games, big playgrounds like the Champions League. Commenting on the performance of the trio of Kroos, Modric, Karim Benzema, the Italian strategist said:
“People think they don’t have the same amount of energy as young players. However, the way they control the game is unique, priceless. You cannot buy those values on the market.”
“They have things that only experience can give. Old age takes away some things from you, but it also gives you other values.”
According to Semra Hunter, Bellingham is planned by Real Madrid as a long-term replacement for Toni Kroos. In terms of gameplay, the Three Lions player possesses unique characteristics that will complement the Real Madrid midfield.
Bellingham’s defensive and pressing stats are higher than any midfielder in the current Real Madrid squad. The 19-year-old midfielder also excels by the parameters of tackles, passes, the number of shots…
Bellingham will give Ancelotti more attacking options in the midfield. Real Madrid need the English midfielder to implement the plan to rejuvenate the squad. In the opposite direction, Bellingham holds Los Blancos to elevate his career and reap noble titles.
