Jude Bellingham is well and truly in Real Madrid. A month after confirming his move to the Santiago Bernabeu, the young midfielder is now part of Los Blancos camp that is looking to get the season started on the right note.

A week into training, Bellingham has already left many surprised in the Real Madrid camp with his attitude and mentality, reports AS.

Unlike any other player from the United Kingdom who has set foot in Madrid, Bellingham has shown a deep interest in learning the Spanish culture and the language. More importantly, he has gotten close with some of his new teammates.

Bellingham is particularly close with fellow new signings Arda Guler and Fran Garcia. He also shares a good rapport with some of the Spaniards, including Brahim Diaz. He referred to the former Man City starlet as his ‘little brother’ in one of his Instagram stories.

The Englishman is also close with Lucas Vazquez and Dani Ceballos. He has shown excellent rapport with these two Real Madrid stars and even admitted that the former is helping him learn Spanish.

This bodes well for Real Madrid management, as they look to maximise the youngster’s leadership and mentality.

Bellingham’s early adaptation to the Real Madrid squad is indeed indicative of the player’s mentality – one of the player’s biggest assets.

With Toni Kroos and Luka Modric unlikely to continue beyond 2024, Bellingham’s leadership and his ability to gel with the team could prove to be integral for the future of the Real Madrid midfield.

However, Bellingham must justify his presence in the dressing room with performances on the pitch. He is expected to feature in some of the friendlies during Real Madrid’s pre-season tour to the United States, though he had been struggling with his knee problem earlier in the month.

Real Madrid usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
