Real Madrid legend Luis Figo has labelled Jude Bellingham as one of the best players in the world already.

Real Madrid icon Luis Figo has bestowed high praise upon Jude Bellingham, deeming him one of the world’s premier players at a remarkably young age.

Bellingham, the English international, made his transition to Los Blancos during the summer, securing a transfer from Borussia Dortmund for an initial fee of £88.5 million, potentially rising to £115 million.

In contrast to the common trend of players struggling in the illustrious surroundings of the Bernabeu, the 20-year-old midfielder has thrived, commencing his LaLiga journey with a remarkable five goals in four appearances.

Bellingham’s outstanding performance has garnered acclaim from numerous quarters, including a glowing endorsement from Real Madrid legend Luis Figo, who, during his own illustrious career alongside luminaries like Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham, and Ronaldo, has recognized the extraordinary talent in the former Birmingham prodigy.

This remarkable form, consistently demonstrated even during international duty with England, prompted Portuguese football icon Figo to extol the young star’s abilities.

Quoted by AS, he said: “He has started very strongly. [He] has adapted very, very quickly to what Real Madrid is all about.


“Is Bellingham already one of the best players in the world? Yes, without a doubt.


“Because of his talent and the commitment he is showing, even though he is so young.”
