Speaking on Radio MARCA, Getafe manager Jose Bordalas has revealed the role Real Madrid star Jude Bellingham played in helping the Azulones sign Mason Greenwood from Manchester United this past summer.
Bellingham arrived at Real Madrid only this past summer and is already one of the main men of Carlo Ancelotti’s men.
The England international’s impact has been the chief driving force behind Real Madrid’s 100% winning start to the new campaign.
It appears that Bellingham has not only helped Real Madrid in the new campaign, but also came to Getafe’s aid during the transfer window.
Bellingham’s role in Greenwood’s loan move
Mason Greenwood has not played football for more than a year as he found himself a suspect in a sexual harassment investigation in Manchester.
Even though the one-time capped England international was cleared of all charges by the court, there was a lot of backlash against the idea of him being reintroduced into the Manchester United team this past summer.
As such, the club and the player made the decision to part ways, at least for now. And while destinations like Italy, Turkey and the Middle East were being talked about, Greenwood made his way to Getafe on a loan deal.
And, Bellingham played a part in it, as revealed by the Azulones manager, Jose Bordalas, who said: “Greenwood is friends with Bellingham and he advised him to come to the Spanish league.”
“We have to be patient, calm and we are helping him and his teammates. He is integrating in a sensational way and hopefully, he can help us,” Bordalas added on Greenwood.
Real Madrid faced Getafe in their first home game of the season right before the international break, but Greenwood did not feature in that match.
Real Madrid very happy with future star Endrick, eagerly awaiting his arrival in 2024 – Romano
Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.
Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.
Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.
Real Madrid impressed by Endrick
Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.
The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.
And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.
Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.
Endrick also learning new languages
Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.
The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.
As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.
Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
