Real Madrid are gearing up to embark on the second half of the season, after dominantly concluding the first.

In an open training session hosted by the club, the fans were invited to witness their favorite players train together ahead of the season’s resumption.

Jude Bellingham, winner of the Kopa Trophy and Golden Boy award, gave his two cents to the press.

When asked what his favorite moment of the year was, the Clasico victory took the cake for Jude Bellingham, as it was his blistering brace that sealed the victory.

“Probably the Clasico. It was a difficult game but two good moments for me to help the team get the win, he said.

Despite initially trailing, the Englishman came up clutch to score a long-range golazo and a last-minute winner, helping his side widen the distance with Barcelona on the league standings.

The 20-year-old was also asked what his desires are for the upcoming year, to which he replied:

Win a lot of trophies…more trophies. Lots of goals, good performances, wins. To continue enjoying being a Real Madrid player.”

Since joining Madrid, Bellingham has already won several individual accolades but is yet to triumph collectively.

But the upcoming year presents a great deal of opportunities, with Madrid flying high in all competitions.

On the goalscoring front, Bellingham could not have asked for a better start to life in the Spanish capital, and he hankers to continue scoring at a regular frequency.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti has done an incredible job allowing him to operate in a free role and his contract extension until 2026 is bound to bode well for the youngster.

As Real Madrid gear up to face Borussia Dortmund in the finals of the UEFA Champions League this weekend, a number of their players interacted with the press today as part of the UEFA Open Media Day.

Jude Bellingham was one of the stars who answered questions from the media ahead of what will be an emotional game for him against his former club, in his homeland.

The England international has enjoyed a spectacular debut season at Real Madrid and is seen as a strong contender for the Ballon d’Or this season.

However, when asked about the Golden Orb, Bellingham tipped his Madrid teammate Vinicius Jr. as his pick to win the prestigious honour this year.

“For me, Vinicius is the best in the world. He creates magic out of nothing. He has everything to be the best,” said Bellingham, as quoted by The Athletic’s Guillermo Rai.

After all, Vinicius has also enjoyed a scintillating campaign and is one of the frontrunners to walk away with the Ballon d’Or, owing to his clutch performances for Real Madrid.

The Brazilian also spoke to the media today and was asked about the Ballon d’Or. Interestingly, he went on to name Bellingham as his pick to win the Golden Ball.

“I would give the Ballon d’Or to Bellingham,” he said, as quoted by Carrusel.

When Bellingham was informed about Vinicius picking him as the favourite for the Ballon d’Or, the England international responded by saying:

“If that’s how he feels, then you can split it in two (laughs).”

The responses show the strong bond and camaraderie that the two superstars of Real Madrid share.

Both are contenders to lift the Golden Ball this year and a win in the Champions League, coupled with strong performances in the summer’s international tournaments, would further enhance their chances.
