Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has put forth a bold assertion regarding Jude Bellingham.

Since his summer transfer from Borussia Dortmund, the 20-year-old has seamlessly adapted to life in Spain and even earned the distinction of being named La Liga's Player of the Month for August, underscoring his exceptional form.

According to Transfermarkt, Bellingham has found the back of the net seven times across all competitions for Madrid, including crucial goals in matches against Celta Vigo, Getafe, and Union Berlin.

Neville backs Bellingham for greatness

Neville is of the opinion that if the Stourbridge-born attacker continues on his current path, he has the potential to become an iconic figure in the history of the national team.

“If Bellingham continues like this, he could become the greatest English footballer of all time”, he told MARCA as quoted by Football Espana.
“He’s exceptionally talented and has a brilliant temperament. He always anticipates what is going to happen next.
“His start to the season with Real Madrid and England speaks of a player on another level. He is beautiful to watch.”

Bellingham speaks on his dream Madrid move

In a related publication, Sports Brief reported that despite his tender age of just 20, Jude Bellingham is showcasing a level of performance typically associated with seasoned players. Remarkably, in just a few appearances, he has already established himself as a pivotal figure for the Spanish powerhouse.

His impressive goal-scoring streak, with five goals in his first four La Liga matches, has drawn comparisons to Cristiano Ronaldo's early days at the club in 2009 when he made the switch from Manchester United.

Bellingham's swift adaptation to life at Real Madrid is evident, and he has openly expressed that playing for the club was a lifelong dream of his.
