La Liga is blessed with some of the world’s finest young talents. From Real Madrid’s Jude Bellingham and Eduardo Camavinga to Girona’s Savio; Barcelona’s Pedri and Gavi to Athletic Club’s Nico Williams, there is no end to the list of prodigious talents.

Their rivalry only fuels one another to push to greater limits and uplifts the level of Spanish football to greater heights.

Beyond a point, it becomes critical to understand that these very young talents are the new face of La Liga, and that camaraderie alongside their rivalry will only enhance their impact.

Barcelona’s Pedri speaks about Bellingham

Barcelona’s Pedri has largely been dubbed as one of Spain’s finest midfield talents of the generation.

As the Catalans’ starboy, the debate between Barcelona and Real Madrid’s midfield success soon boiled down to a debate between Pedri and Jude Bellingham’s success.

Los Blancos’ new signing, however, has been absolutely unstoppable all season and has significantly outperformed Barcelona’s injury-riddled midfield maestro.

Speaking to the Spanish streamer Ibai Llanos in a recent interview, Pedri did not hold back in openly praising Bellingham with great regard.

“[Jude] Bellingham has surprised me a lot. He’s in a moment where every shot he takes ends in a goal,” the Canary Islander said.

Taming the pressure

Stepping into a club like Real Madrid at 20 years of age with a €103 million price tag brings a mountain-load of expectations with it. For many players, the inability to handle such pressure becomes the root of their downfall.

Bellingham, however, has made easy work of the responsibility on his shoulders with a flying start to life at Madrid.

His statement in a recent interview only goes on to show why his mentality is critical in his success so far.

“Working at Real Madrid requires a certain level of quality and mentality, and to have this responsibility feels like a huge privilege to me. Every day I come I try to work hard to be the best. The goal when you come to Real Madrid is to win everything,” he said when asked about the pressure.

Real Madrid will be on their way to England this Thursday as they gear up to take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The players and the staff will be on a flight to London tomorrow to prepare for the clash at Wembley.

However, according to a report from journalist Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin might not travel with the rest of the team tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper has not trained for three days in a row after coming down with the flu.

Lunin has overcome the flu, but he still has the virus and there is still a chance he could be contagious.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
