Isco joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2013 from Malaga and, over the years, morphed into an integral part of the team’s midfield.

With a knack for performing on the big stages and achieving an incredible amount of accolades, he is still remembered admirably by the Madrid faithful

While the Spanish maestro left Madrid in the summer of 2022 after spending nine years, he is enjoying an exceptional resurgence at Real Betis.

Now, the former Madrid player has showered praise on Jude Bellingham, who has gotten off to a flying start with 13 goals in 14 games.

Isco claims Bellingham the rightful Golden Boy winner

As a former Golden Boy winner, having been awarded the trophy back in 2012, Isco shared his two cents on Bellingham being the newly crowned Golden Boy.

In clear approval of the outcome, Isco said, “We’re all watching how he plays, right? For everything he does, especially for his goals. He is being very decisive at Real Madrid, he has decided many games and I believe that no one deserves it more than him.”

Bellingham received 97% of the votes and won 485 points out of a possible 500, demonstrating sheer superiority over his peers.

After nearly propelling Dortmund to the Bundesliga title in Germany, he extended his dazzling form with Los Blancos. The Englishman is currently the top scorer for the club by a wide margin.

Following Hristo Stoichkov’s claims disputing the winner, Isco’s undeniable acceptance of the winner shows a clash of opinions.

Bellingham is at the moment recovering from a shoulder injury and thus faces a race against time as the game against Cadiz approaches.

The midfielder is a doubt to participate in the game but will be itching to get back onto the pitch and justify once more why he is the Golden Boy.

After unveiling the final squad for France for the upcoming European Championship, coach Didier Deschamps appeared in front of the media to discuss the nation’s preparations for the tournament.

Deschamps was notably asked about Kylian Mbappe and his potential move to Real Madrid in the coming summer.

Deschamps on Mbappe announcement

When asked when Real Madrid may announce the signing of Mbappe, the French coach replied (h/t L’Equipe), “They will decide when it’s time to make it official. As far as possible, I will adapt to the squad.”

This comes on the back of earlier reports which claim that Real Madrid are desperate to announce the signing of Mbappe before the start of Euro 2024.

The coveted tournament begins June 14, though France’s opening game is on June 18 as they take on Austria in the city of Dusseldorf.

Deschamps also dismissed concerns over Mbappe’s form, stating, “You don’t find Kylian Mbappé in good shape? He only scored 44 goals in the season. It’s true that he could have done better.”

Deschamps on Tchouameni’s fitness

As things stand, a total of three Real Madrid players are a part of the France squad for the European Championship.

One of them is Aurelien Tchouameni, who picked up a knock earlier this month which could keep him out of the upcoming Champions League final.

Deschamps, though, is not worried about his fitness and is hopeful of having the midfielder back for the Euros.

“Tchouaméni? I’m not worried. The deadline is too short for the UCL final but for the Euro it’s more than doable,” he said.
