Real Madrid right-back, Dani Carvajal has revealed what the club’s veterans said about summer signing Jude Bellingham.
Bellingham has been impressive for Real Madrid since joining the La Liga giants over the summer transfer window from Borussia Dortmund.
The England international has so far scored five goals for Real Madrid this season.
The 20-year-old has settled in brilliantly, already starting over veterans Luka Modric and Toni Kroos in Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
Speaking about Bellingham, Carvajal said in an interview on documentary series Universo Valdano, hosted by Merengues and Argentina legend Jorge Valdano (as quoted by GOAL):
“We don’t want to deify him [Bellingham] too much because the bar is set too high.
“From the first moment when he started training, we looked at each other in pre-season, the veterans… and we said: ‘Phew, he knows what he’s doing!’ You don’t see that he’s very fast, that technically he’s crazy.
“It is just that he is very complete, he is a finisher, you give him the ball and from the third week he’s understood everyone just by watching. He is very intelligent.”
