Jude Bellingham’s form at Real Madrid cannot be questioned, for the youngster keeps racking up goals and assists for the Merengues. Last night once again, it was the new signing who created Los Blancos’ goal out of thin air with a stunning run.

Not all, however, has been smooth sailing for Bellingham. The youngster now stares a two-game ban in La Liga for virtually no fault of his, while he was also concurrently battling the allegation from Getafe until now.

Case Dropped

Now, according to reports from MARCA, Bellingham can breathe a sigh of relief on one front at least. As relayed by the Spanish outlet, the case filed by Getafe to La Liga over the Real Madrid star’s alleged ‘insult’ to Mason Greenwood has been dropped.

The controversy arose in the clash between Los Blancos and Getafe in February when Bellingham reportedly called Greenwood a ‘ra**st’ after a duel on the night.

While prominent lip-readers hinted that the player’s indeed insulted his compatriot, the case has now been dropped because it is impossible to decipher exactly what the youngster said.

There is ambiguity if he used the word ‘ra**st’ or ‘rubbish’, and the failure to single out which of the two was uttered has led to the case being closed. Needless to say, this comes as a massive relief to both Real Madrid and Bellingham.

Bellingham speaks on his ban

The new signing was shown a red card in Real Madrid’s recent clash against Valencia in Mestalla after his last-minute winner was disallowed by the referee’s premature whistle.

‘Dissent’ earned him the booking, and La Liga soon confirmed that he would be banned for two games.

“I am not happy [with the red card], but I think that if the League and the club appeal there can be an agreement because I think that two games for that reason is a bit ridiculous, but if I have to miss them I assume responsibility and I will support the team from the stands,” Bellingham said when asked to comment on the ban after the team’s recent draw with RB Leipzig.

Real Madrid officially played their final game of the league season this past weekend and the focus now shifts to the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1.

The Spanish champions have the glorious opportunity to secure their 15th Champions League title this on Sunday.

But heading into this clash, Real Madrid are likely to miss out on the services of one of the key players – Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman will likely be ruled out for the UCL final due to an injury incurred earlier this month.

Tchouameni on UCL final

Speaking ahead of the final, Tchouameni admitted that it would be very difficult for him to participate in the UCL final.

“I can run, I think it is very difficult to play in this final and we have more players who can be in my position. The important thing is that we are going to win this Champions League,” Tchouameni said.

The Frenchman added that he would try to help the team any way he can, stating, “If I can be the MVP from the bench, I’ll do it.”

Considered by many as the future of the Real Madrid midfield, Tchouameni has played a valuable role in the middle of the park this season.

His versatility, coupled with his ability to spread the play and put pressure on the opposition have served as key to Real Madrid’s success.

Although Tchouameni might not feature in this final, the player expressed his optimism about the Real Madrid team, adding, “I really want to play in this final, but I’m sure we will reach more finals [in coming years].”

Finally, Tchouameni expressed his happiness at Real Madrid, stating, “It’s an incredible feeling to be at Real Madrid.”

Formerly of AS Monaco, Tchouameni has featured in 88 competitive matches since joining Real Madrid in 2022. With Toni Kroos retiring, he is expected to play a crucial role for the club going forward, although not necessarily in the upcoming Champions League final.
