Jude Belligham’s impulsive outburst in Real Madrid’s clash against Getafe has been widely looked into by both English and Spanish media. It now appears the same could get him into trouble.

After tackling Mason Greenwood on the wing at Coliseum Alfonso Perez, the Real Madrid star was caught calling the Getafe star a ‘ra*ist’, and the same has been caught on video. The audio from the evidence, however, is not clear, prompting La Liga to engage other modalities to confirm Getafe’s suspicions.

Professional opinion

According to reports from Mundo Deportivo, the lip-reader on board to decode Bellingham’s words against Greenwood. 

“After carefully analyzing the clip, I am 97 per cent sure that the word spoken is ‘ra*ist’, particularly if you consider the context in which it was used. The visual signals of the lips indicate the presence of the sounds ‘R’ and ‘P’, and the word seems to end abruptly,” the lip-reader Jeremy Freeman concluded.

He also concluded that considering the player’s accent and the clear lack of alternative interpretations, the accusation from Getafe is legitimate.

Bellingham is silent

The Real Madrid star’s words may have been harsh and unwarranted on the field. However, it was by no means an insult for he was only calling a spade a spade.

The Daily Mail have contacted the Real Madrid star’s entourage to gain his perspective on the matter and clarification regarding his words. Bellingham, however, has remained silent so far.

It remains to be seen if La Liga concurs with Freeman’s interpretation and imposes any sanction on Bellingham or Real Madrid for the incident. In any case, all focus in Madrid currently is towards the upcoming derby on Sunday night.

As has been reported by multiple reliable sources today, Alphonso Davies is likely to be on his way to Real Madrid from Bayern Munich in the summer.

It has been suggested that the 23-year-old Canadian left-back already has a verbal agreement with Los Blancos over a transfer either this summer or in 2025, when his contract with the Bundesliga champions runs down.

Now, the idea is for Real Madrid to start negotiations with Bayern Munich over a transfer fee so that a mutually beneficial agreement can be reached for the summer window.

Real Madrid will not pay crazy money

Amidst all this, Fabrizio Romano has come out with an update claiming that Real Madrid do not intend to pay ‘crazy money’ to sign Davies from Bayern Munich given that he will be entering the final year of his contract.

The Italian transfer expert claims that Real Madrid have been the preferred destination for Davies for a while now and that the personal terms between the two parties will not be an issue at all.

So, a summer move would now hinge on Bayern Munich’s asking price for their left-back.

Romano states that the Bavarian giants will attempt to tie Davies down to a new contract until May or even June.

But if the left-back, who is demanding hefty wages worth around €20 million, does not agree to sign, they will be forced to sell instead of losing him for free next year.

In that scenario, Real Madrid will be best-placed to sign Davies, although Los Blancos will not go overboard with their spending on the Canadian.
