In what could be a matter of concern for Real Madrid, Cadena SER reports that rising star Jude Bellingham could miss the start of the new season as he might undergo surgery to address his shoulder problems.

The 20-year-old England international enjoyed a special debut season with Real Madrid, winning three trophies, including the UEFA Champions League, while also bagging some individual accolades.

After all, Bellingham has been named La Liga Player of the Season, Champions League Young Player of the Season, and Real Madrid Fans’ Player of the Season as well.

Bellingham could undergo surgery

However, the season has not been one without ordeals for Bellingham, as he has had to deal with fitness and injury problems during the campaign.

One such problem that has bothered him for the majority of the campaign is a shoulder discomfort that he has been carrying since November last year.

As per the report, the discomfort has been increasing a great deal throughout the final stretch of the season and the midfielder played with a lot of pain.

The reality is that the English midfielder can no longer cope with his ailments and, if they do not subside during the European Championship, he will be forced to undergo surgery.

Pre-season and start of the season in doubt

If the conservative treatment does not work, Bellingham, Real Madrid and his entourage see that there will be no choice but to undergo surgery.

If he is operated on after the Euros, the 20-year-old will miss Real Madrid’s pre-season and the start of La Liga because the approximate time off is three months.

It will certainly be a blow for Real Madrid but having Bellingham at his fittest levels will be important if they are to repeat the success they achieved this past season.

Real Madrid face Premier League, Saudi Arabia competition for free transfer target

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
