Jude Bellingham thanks Vazquez and Brahim Diaz for helping him learn Spanish

The offensive Spanish terms being taught to him by his new Real Madrid teammates are something Jude Bellingham says he ‘can’t wait to try out

The 20-year-old was transferred to Madrid in a deal that, should all the performance-related add-ons and bonuses involved be accomplished, could ultimately cost Borussia Dortmund £115 million.

Bellingham, who has assumed the responsibility of donning the club’s number five shirt, made famous in the modern era by Zinedine Zidane, is just the sixth English male footballer to ever play for Real Madrid, joining Laurie Cunningham, Steve McManaman, David Beckham, Michael Owen, and Jonathan Woodgate.

Bellingham had never lived outside of his comfort zone before moving to Spain, but he is used to doing so. At the age of 17, he signed a £25 million contract to join Dortmund from Birmingham City, making him the most expensive player of his age. After scoring 30 minutes into his DFB-Pokal debut against MSV Duisberg, Bellingham quickly set a club record for the DFB-Pokal’s youngest goal scorer. Over the following three years, Bellingham established himself as one of the best midfielders in the world.

Bellingham acknowledges that he is still adjusting to his new surroundings despite being at probably the largest club in world football. However, with some assistance from his teammates, particularly when it comes to learning a new language, he is making progress.

Even though he’s ‘feeling strong and fantastic’ thus far, he continued, one of the main challenges of the transfer thus far has been getting used to the heat of training. There was also time to acknowledge the skill of seasoned midfielder Toni Kroos, who will undoubtedly be charged by manager Carlo Ancelotti with imparting his knowledge to a player who will undoubtedly be the midfield’s linchpin for the team for years to come.
