In a recent report, Torcedores mentioned that Real Madrid are facing stiff competition for Borussia Dortmund prospect Jude Bellingham this summer. It has been revealed that Los Blancos will have to rival Liverpool and now, Chelsea in the race to land the English whizkid.

Bellingham’s Excellent Form At Signal Iduna Park

Bellingham had a terrific season in Germany as he put in a series of eye-catching displays for Dortmund over the past ten months. The 19-year-old netted six goals and picked up 14 assists in 43 matches for the German club in the previous campaign in multiple competitions.

The promising teenager was a consistent performer on the field based on his average of 1.6 tackles, 1.3 interceptions, 0.9 clearances, 1.4 shots, 1.2 interceptions and 1.7 dribbles per game in the Bundesliga. He even took care of the ball well when distributing possession from midfield, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 83.7% in the German top-flight (stats via whoscored).

Real Madrid Are Facing Stiff Competition For Bellingham: Is He Worth The Fight?

Bellingham can influence the game at both ends of the field. He is a good tackler of the ball and can earn possession back for his team when required. Bellingham is primarily a box-to-box midfielder but can even operate as a wide player on either wing if his manager needs him to do so.

The England international can chip in by scoring a few important goals in the final third. He has also got the ability to create multiple chances for others around him in the opposition half.

Bellingham hardly gives away the ball cheaply and is destined to have a very bright future in European football. Thus, he will be a great acquisition for Los Blancos if Carlo Ancelotti can devise a way to get him on board in this off-season.

Bellingham is a generational talent who could help the Madrid giants bring even more success back to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium over the next decade. Hence, the Dortmund wonderkid is well-worth the fight as he is already good enough to enhance the quality of Real Madrid’s starting XI.
