His impressive tally of six goals in seven games matches Cristiano Ronaldo's best goal-scoring run during his time at Madrid. In addition to his scoring prowess, the Englishman has also showcased his playmaking abilities.

According to Givemesport, Bellingham delivered an assist worthy of consideration for the season's best with his trivela pass to set up Joselu in Real Madrid's recent away victory against Girona.

The 20-year-old has earned high praise, with legendary Manchester United player, Gary Neville suggesting that if the young attacker from Stourbridge maintains his current trajectory, he could ultimately become the greatest English footballer of all time, leaving a lasting legacy in the national team's history, per Football Espana.

While he has not yet reached the status of a true legend, Bellingham has revealed five players whom he considers Real Madrid icons.
