Jude Bellingham was one of the bright spots in Real Madrid’s 2-0 win over Manchester United on Wednesday night.

Making just his second start for the club, the English midfielder put up a resilient showing that even included his first goal for the Merengues.

According to reports from AS, Los Blancos are very optimistic about Bellingham’s physical condition.

There were reports that his debut would be delayed out of caution of his knee injury that kept him out towards the back end of last season, but it is now clear that he has no discomfort in his right knee.

The youngster has left a strong impression in the limited time he has had on the field so far against both AC Milan and Manchester United.

Not only has Bellingham proved that he is a star but has also taken a step forward as one of the leaders on the field. The report from AS calls him the best player on the field against the Red Devils.

The teenage sensation played 45 minutes on the night, netting the opener from a sumptuous Rudiger assist in just the sixth minute.

Further, he completed two dribbles, won eight duels and completed 85% of his attempted passes.

The midfield prodigy spoke to the media after scoring his first goal for Real Madrid and highlighted the happiness he derived in playing alongside the world’s best.

“I am very happy to play with these players and I say it in every interview. The goal was after a great pass from Rüdiger. It’s a great joy to play with footballers who understand my movements,” he said.

With Bellingham proving his quality from the very start, he makes a strong case to enter Carlo Ancelotti’s starting lineup for the league opener.

Jude Bellingham’s Euro 2024 campaign came to a heartbreaking end as England slumped to a 2-1 defeat against Spain in the final.

Bellingham was one of the better players for England in what was a hard-fought affair at the Olympiastadion. However, the Real Madrid star was not able to get his team over the line, with England conceding a late winner from Mikel Oyarzabal.

Bellingham was visibly disappointed at the result and was seen storming off the pitch and even kicking a drinks cooler in frustration.

Speaking to a press after the defeat, Bellingham expressed his thoughts, calling it a ‘heartbreaking result’.

“We all wanted nothing more than to make history and make people of England proud but we didn’t deliver. Going forward we will analyze it, it’s a young group,” he said (h/t Daily Mail).

Bellingham was indeed one of the more important players for an England side, which was criticised by many for their underwhelming performances

However, the Real Madrid star also looked at the positive. “It’s disappointing because we have to deliver at some point but there are things we can take from this,” he said.

“As a team, we will take the positives and negatives and we have to find a way to get it over the line,” the midfielder added.

While the defeat to Spain was certainly a blow for young Bellingham, the Englishman can hold his head up high, as he is coming on the back of a tremendous campaign that saw him secure the La Liga and the Champions League title.

For now, Bellingham will be looking forward to an extended summer break, before shifting his focus back to Real Madrid ahead of the new season.
