A compilation of Jude Bellingham’s highlights from his Real Madrid debut against AC Milan has gone viral.
Just last month, Bellingham secured a monumental move to Madrid, making him the most expensive British player with a reported fee of £113 million.
During Sunday’s pre-season fixture in Pasadena, California, Los Blancos faced off against the Serie A giants Milan. Bellingham was immediately included in the starting midfield four alongside Toni Kroos, Federico Valverde, and Eduardo Camavinga.
Despite his presence, Madrid found themselves trailing 2-0 after goals from Fikayo Tomori and Luka Romero.
After making several changes during the half-time break, Madrid staged a remarkable comeback, winning 3-2 thanks to a brace from Valverde and a goal from Vinicius Jr.
Bellingham was substituted in the 63rd minute, having delivered a more than decent debut for his new club.
Throughout the game, the former Borussia Dortmund player showcased glimpses of his immense potential, impressing with his precise passing and energetic presence in the midfield.
Following the match, highlights of the 20-year-old’s debut went viral, capturing the attention and admiration of football fans worldwide.
Fans were quick to react on social media.
One said: “Impressive debut of Bellingham man, we’re really going to enjoy him for years.”
Another tweeted: “Few minutes of watching Bellingham, Camavinga and Valverde play for Real Madrid and I got my joy back.”
A third fan added: “Bellingham has been class so far, already slotting in nicely.”
Someone else wrote: “Jude Bellingham BALLED OUT on his Madrid debut.”
Whilst a fifth commented: “When you’re a great player, people will forget your price tag. Jude Bellingham will be one of those players.”
After the match, Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti said: “Jude Bellingham? He’s a fantastic player.
“He’s very important. He’s a complete midfielder. Very good without the ball. He’s unique, extraordinary.”
Whilst Bellingham wrote on his Instagram: “Loved my first minutes as a Madridista. Let’s keep building. Thank you for the love!.”
Madrid will be back in action on Thursday as they take on Premier League side Manchester United at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
