Bellingham signed for Madrid for a high price tag of $110 million, which could further rise up by $32 million in the next six seasons. He was a young prodigy at the German club Borussia Dortmund, but with his recent performances, he has made Madrid his home, taking no time to acclimatize to the conditions.
Bellingham broke the record of Cristiano Ronaldo, Alfredo Di Stefano, and Pruden Sanchez who scored 13 goals each in their initial 15 matches for the men in white.
Real Madrid’s next assignment is against Italy’s football club Napoli. They will fight to finish top of their respective group in the UEFA Champions League. Madrid has already qualified for the ‘Round of 16’ stage, while Napoli requires 3 more points in the next two matches to finish second in the group.
