Bellingham has become an instant favorite of Real Madrid fans. This is just the start, his early days already suggest that there is a lot to come.

Real Madrid went behind after just 11 minutes when Borja Mayoral rounded Kepa and slotted home. Joselu scored from a rebound right at the start of the second half to bring parity.

Even though the Norwegian striker has found his home at the Etihad, winning the treble with the Cityzens and a record-breaking debut season, rumors of a move to the Bernabeu never seem to go away. Amidst rumors that the Los Blancos are set to target the Manchester City number 9 if the Mbappe deal does not go through, Erling’s Agent, Rafaela Pimenta, and former RMA and Man City Player Steve McManaman have responded to the same.

McManaman commented that having their future trajectory mapped out in front of them seems strange, referring to Erling Haaland‘s future ‘destined’ to be at Real. He also asked if any other club could afford him given his massive contract and salary. Further, Erling’s agent said that the players have a sense of understanding that their future lies in their own hands.
