Since joining Real Madrid in the summer transfer window, Jude Bellingham has soared to new heights of superstardom.
One of the best young players in the game currently, the 20-year-old has emerged as the main man for Los Blancos in his first ever season with the club.
Bellingham has already won the Golden Boy and the Kopa Trophy for 2023 and there has been talk of him being a Ballon d’Or winner in the near future.
Adidas to launch signature Bellingham logo
An indication of the heights Bellingham has risen to is that Adidas is set to launch a signature logo for the Real Madrid talisman, reports Footy Headlines.
The 20-year-old England international is one of the top young stars representing the Adidas brand and is the leading ambassador for its Predator boots silo.
As such, the German sporting goods giants are now planning to launch a signature logo for Bellingham in the near future.
While there is no indication about when it will happen or what the logo could be, Footy Headlines are predicting that the logo graphic could be centred around Bellingham’s open arms celebration which has become a huge hit.
It is also being speculated that with the release of the Bellingham signature logo, Adidas could be preparing for the launch of the Predator 24 signature shoe for the Real Madrid talisman this year.
Real Madrid midfielder on Kylian Mbappe’s potential arrival: “He’s always welcome”
Over the past few years, the story of Kylian Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid has dominated media outlets regularly. The 25-year-old has been at the club’s doorstep several times in the past, but the deal was never complicated.
There, is, however, something different about the rumours this time around. Mbappe has openly announced his departure from PSG not only to the administration but also to the dressing room, when his contract expires in the summer.
Furthermore, it has also been reported that Mbappe’s arrival has also been announced in the Real Madrid locker room.
Comment from a player
Despite rumours strongly doing the rounds, there has been a queer silence from the offices and dressing room of Real Madrid over Mbappe’s possible signing.
However, Los Blancos’ star midfielder Federico Valverde broke the ice over the World Cup winner’s arrival, saying,
“Kylian Mbappé is a great player, he’s always welcome,” he said via El Chiringuito.
As revealed recently, the Merengues have tabled a proposal involving wages between €19 million to €22 million per season, a Ballon d’Or clause of €15 million and a massive signing-on bonus for the player.
It remains to be seen, however, if the Frenchman’s entourage are satisfied with the offer.
Mbappe’s arrival will bring another of world football’s elite names into the dressing room at Santiago Bernabeu.
With Vinicius Jr already firmly rooted in the left-wing position, however, Mbappe will not have his preferred position available at Real Madrid.
Carlo Ancelotti thus sees three possible tactical adjustments to fit Mbappe into his dynamics. Two of the aforementioned three ideas see a 4-4-2 adopted with Rodrygo being dropped, while a 4-3-3 would mean Real Madrid sacrifice a midfielder like Eduardo Camavinga.
Needless to say, the pressure will be on Ancelotti to find a role for the Frenchman superstar without affecting the team’s current dynamics or balance.
