It is official. Real Madrid rising star Jude Bellingham has won the Golden Boy Award for the year 2023.

The 20-year-old England international has already pocketed the Kopa Trophy at the Ballon d’Or ceremony earlier this year.

Now, he has added another prestigious honour to his individual collection with the Golden Boy Award being awarded to him.

Bellingham finished with a total of 485 points out of a maximum of 500, with 97% of the votes, showing how clear he was of the competition.

The prize is more than well-deserved for Bellingham after the sensational year he has had first at Borussia Dortmund and then with Real Madrid.

The midfield sensation almost led the Black and Yellows to the Bundesliga title last season before securing a mega-money move to Real Madrid in the summer window.

Since joining the Merengues, Bellingham has easily been among the best in the game over the past few months, leading Real Madrid’s charge on multiple fronts.

In 14 games this season, the Englishman has scored 13 goals and set up three more, enjoying a dream start to life in the Spanish capital.

Having won the Golden Boy and the Kopa Trophy this year, Bellingham will now set his sights on the big prize, the Ballon d’Or in the coming years, for which he will need to help Real Madrid to great success.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid Femenino’s Linda Caicedo went on to win the Golden Girl Absolute Best award.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
