After being introduced as a fresh addition to Real Madrid, Jude Bellingham faced the media in the press room at Real Madrid City. The English midfielder expressed:

He added: “I don’t think about money when I make these kinds of decisions. It’s not important to me. It’s the sport I love and I love the feeling at Real Madrid and how I feel about the club. For me Real Madrid is the greatest club and I wanted everything to happen quickly. It doesn’t mean that the other teams are bad, but that Real Madrid is the greatest.”

During his official introduction today, Real Madrid disclosed that Jude Bellingham will don the number 5 jersey for the team. The previous holder of this number, Jesús Vallejo, has made a switch to number 24.

About his number 05: “I’d like to thank Vallejo for giving me the 5. I have spoken to him and he’s a great guy. He’s a wonderful guy. I really admire Zidane and the legacy he has at this club with the number 5. It’s a number that inspires me. I’ve worn 22 for a long time and in my heart I’ll continue to wear 22. I’m delighted to wear the number 5.”

Bellingham’s arrival at Real Madrid stands out as one of the most thrilling signings in recent years, making it highly captivating to closely observe his performances this season. However, it’s crucial to note that he is merely 19 years old and has committed to a six-year contract, providing him ample time to continue growing and enhancing his skills while representing the Spanish capital.

With Tchouameni, Camavinga, Valverde, and Bellingham, Real Madrid has assembled a midfield that embodies the club’s future, ensuring their control over the team’s midfield for the next decade.
