As noted by EuroSport, Madrid secured the Englishman’s services from Borussia Dortmund for €103 million in June 2023.

Since then, Bellingham has already scored 20 goals and notched up nine assists in just 31 games for the Spanish side in all competitions.

Speaking about his career after the last round of international friendlies, he was asked whether it all felt like a dream, Madrid Universal reported.

“Yeah, I do feel like that sometimes. I wake up, and I have to pinch myself when I’m playing for England at Wembley or playing for Real Madrid at the Bernabéu,” he said.

The attacking midfielder was also asked about what he would like to achieve in his career, and how he would measure whether he was successful, to which he replied that he wanted to win trophies.

What trophies Bellingham can win next?

The Golden Boy winner has a chance to pick up three major trophies in the coming months, thanks to his exploits for Madrid and England.

Bellingham will be a crucial player for the English side as they compete in the upcoming European Championships and will be looking to help guide Los Blancos to another UEFA Champions League title.

Bellingham will also play a big part as Madrid look to win the La Liga title. Madrid are eight points clear of Barcelona with nine games to go.
