Spanish club giants Real Madrid have broken the Internet. The club has officially signed England’s young sensation Jude Bellingham from Borrusia Dortmund. The 19-year-old has completed his £115 million move, making him the most expensive British player of all time.
Real Madrid announced his arrival on Twitter with a picture of him in the club’s new shirt with a caption saying “Hey Jude” as a reference to the famous Beatles song.
The club released a statement confirming the transfer, revealing that Bellingham will be presented to the fans on Thursday. The official statement read: “Real Madrid CF and Borussia Dortmund have agreed on the transfer of the player Jude Bellingham, who will remain linked to our club for the next six seasons.”

It further read, “Tomorrow, Thursday, June 15, at 12:00 noon at Real Madrid City, the presentation ceremony for Jude Bellingham as a new Real Madrid player will take place.”
The move is a massive plus for Madrid. Bellingham has been rated as one of the best of his generation. He has scored 24 goals in 132 games for Dortmund, winning the German Cup in 2021. Additionally, he has impressed everyone with his leadership skills at Borussia Dortmund.
With Karim Benzema departing from Real Madrid this season, Bellingham will be a great option to lead Real Madrid’s attack. Besides Bellingham, Real Madrid has also announced the signing of Rayo Vallecano left-back Fran Garcia to bolster their defence.
