I wake up and have to pinch myself when I’m playing England at Wembley or Real Madrid at the Bernabeu. I’ve never dreamed of something like this so soon, but I’m grateful to everyone who has taken part in my journey.”

Bellingham has certainly hit it off with the Real Madrid support from the moment he joined from Borussia Dortmund. They will hope that his fine form continues between now and the end of the season, as the 20-year-old aims to have an incredibly successful debut season in Spanish football.
