The English midfielder, who earned the La Liga Player of the Month award for August, has found the net in each of Madrid's first four matches in the Spanish top division, per Transfermarkt.

With a remarkable total of five goals in four games, he currently leads the league's top scorers' chart, showcasing an impeccable start to his Los Blancos journey following his summer transfer from Borussia Dortmund.

Bale's perspective is that Jude, his fellow Brit, is poised to achieve even greater milestones in light of his remarkable start.

“I have not watched a lot, but obviously Bellingham has made a great start," the retired footballer said per MadridXtra.

The 34-year-old stressed the importance of a strong start for Los Blancos, alluding to Bellingham's potential to attain legendary status.

"At a club like Madrid, making a good start is important, and he’s scoring goals. The sky is the limit.”

Bellingham compared to Bale

In contrast to Bale, who faced challenges adapting to life in Madrid, Diario AS has reported that Bellingham's early efforts to integrate into the city have impressed everyone at the club.

The 20-year-old Galactico has developed a strong bond with veteran Lucas Vazquez and returning signing Brahim Diaz, who are helping him learn the language, including some not-so-polite phrases.

This marks a stark contrast to Gareth Bale, whose relationship with the media in the capital was infamously tumultuous, partly due to language barriers, painting him as the opposite of Bellingham in this regard.

Bellingham tipped to score vs Real Sociedad

Sports Brief also noted that Jude Bellingham extended his remarkable goal-scoring form by netting in England's recent victory against Scotland.

The Real Madrid attacker, who currently leads La Liga's goal-scoring charts, as reported by Infogol, is likely to find the back of the net against Imanol Algualcil’s side, who seem to have a leaky defence this season.
