Bellingham was the hottest player in last summer’s transfer market. Bellingham grew up at Birmingham City and developed his skills at Borussia Dortmund. He appeared for the England national team at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, scoring 1 goal and 1 assist in 4 games.
Big European clubs, including Real Madrid, Manchester City, and Liverpool, targeted Bellingham. In the end, it was Real Madrid who acquired Bellingham. The public did not understand why they were targeting Bellingham even though they had young and promising players such as Camavinga, Valverde, and Chouameni.
According to European media reports, the transfer fee is 103 million euros, or about 143.7 billion won in Korean money. It is the second highest in the club’s history, following the 115 million euros (approximately 161 billion won) that Eden Hazard recorded when he transferred from Chelsea to Real Madrid in 2019. There were also criticisms of overconsumption.
Although it is still too early to predict success, he has performed perfectly so far. This season, Bellingham has 10 goals and 3 assists in 10 games. Bellingham’s performance was a major factor in Real Madrid’s first place in the Spanish Primera Liga.
Real Madrid coach Ancelotti said, “Players with this quality are rare. “Ballingham is only 20 years old so he can improve,” he said. “We are lucky to have him in our squad. Ballingham was fantastic. He was satisfied, saying, “He has a lot of rhythm, good movement, and the ability to find space.”
In Spain, people compare Bellingham with ‘Real Madrid legend’ Zinedine Zidane because their nationalities are different but their positions are the same. Bellingham also wants to follow in Zidane’s footsteps.
Football media outlet ‘Tribuna’ paid attention to Bellingham’s uniform number. Bellingham wore number 5 after moving to Real Madrid. Number 5 is the number used by Zinedine Zidane, who is considered a Real Madrid legend. Bellingham has also publicly revealed that his idol is Zidane.
Zinedine Zidane used the number 10 instead of 5 for the French national team during his career. Bellingham also wore his number 10 shirt in his last England call-up. With this, Bellingham now uses the same number as Zidane for club and national team.
Bellingham, wearing Zidane’s uniform and showing Ronaldo’s scoring ability, is aiming for his 11th goal in the away game against Seville on the 22nd (Korean time).
