Jude Bellingham injury update: when will the Real Madrid star return to action?

The signing of Jude Bellingham has triggered a transformation in this season’s Real Madrid side. Despite being a 20-year-old midfielder, his impact at Real Madrid has been nothing short of spectacular. He has formed a great partnership with the likes of Vinicius Jr., Rodrygo, Camavinga, and Fede Valverde in a youthful Madrid side.

Bellingham’s arrival has also contributed to numerous goals, making him Real Madrid’s top scorer this season. The good news for everyone associated with the club is that the Englishman is recovering from an ankle injury, providing Los Blancos with a lift in spirits ahead of an important period for the club.

Is Jude Bellingham ready to start for Madrid?

Real Madrid knew they were getting their hands on one of the brightest stars of the new generation of soccer players. What they didn’t expect was his instant impact at the Bernabeu, and the fact that he’ll be their top goalscorer from his position at the heart of the club’s midfield.

Despite his impeccable form, Bellingham has had his own share of injury problems this season, with his latest crisis coming in the 4-0 win over second-placed Girona last month. The young Englishman scored a brace but couldn’t finish the game as a bad tackle in his ankle, causing him to spend a few weeks on sidelines.

In Carlo Ancelotti’s press conference ahead of tomorrow’s clash against Valencia away from home, the Italian manager provided a positive update on Bellingham’s injury. “He is 100%,” Ancelotti revealed. “The truth is that he hasn’t trained much with the team, but on an individual level, he’s doing very well with his ankle. He is at full strength, and tomorrow he will play,” he added.

How did Jude Bellingham perform in debut La Liga season?

Jude Bellingham has exceeded all expectations this season. The numbers he’s producing for a club as big as Real Madrid are just many to believe for two good reasons. Firstly, he’s just 20. Secondly, those goals have come from him being played as a midfielder, which is his natural position.

Bellingham is Real Madrid’s top scorer in La Liga, with 16 goals in 21 appearances. These goals also ensure that he’s the league’s top scorer, one goal ahead of Getafe’s Mayoral, who has played five games more than the England international.

The former Birmingham City midfielder also has three assists in the league. Jude’s total goal tally this season is 20 in all competitions for the club. Bellingham will hope to add to that tally and mark his return to action with a goal when Real Madrid travel to Valencia tomorrow for their La Liga clash.
