The summer transfer window of the 2023/2024 has seen blockbuster deals with staggering transfer fees completed in the world of football, with the top ten being Jude Bellingham to Real Madrid from Borussia Dortmund, Declan Rice to Arsenal from West Ham United, Moisés Caicedo to Chelsea from Brighton & Hove Albion, Harry Kane to Bayern Munich from Tottenham Hotspur, Randal Kolo Muani to Paris Saint-Germain from Eintracht Frankfurt, Joško Gvardiol to Manchester City from RB Leipzig, Neymar to Al-Hilal from Paris Saint-Germain, Christopher Nkunku to Chelsea from RB Leipzig, Rasmus Højlund to Manchester United from Atalanta BC and Dominik Szoboszlai to Liverpol from RB Leipzig.
Jude Bellingham, Kane and Gvardiol Among the Best Signings in 2023/2024
Although it usually takes time for players to settle down in the new chapter of their football careers, many of these said major signings have already showed their masterclass at their new clubs and why they costed them so much money this summer, and the top performer among them thus far is none other than 20-year-old England national team midfielder Jude Bellingham, who already managed 5 goals and 1 assist in 4 matches for his new club, Spanish La Liga giants and 35-time league winner Real Madrid.
Like his compatriot and international captain Harry Kane who is now playing for defending German Bundesliga 1 champion Bayern Munich, Jude Bellingham is among the list of English players who went abroad for professional football, a scene which is relatively rare for England internationals considering the country is the birthplace of the famous sports.
Born on 29th June 2003, the midfield prodigy graduated from the Birmingham City academy and made his senior debut for the club back in the 2019/2020 Season, making a staggering total of 44 appearances in all competitions for the EFL Championship side. His consistent performances and all-around abilities caught the eye of German outfit Borussia Dortmund, who then broke the bank and made Jude Bellingham the most expensive 17-year-old ever with £25 million in 2020.

5 Goals and 1 Assist in 4 Matches for Jude Bellingham
Germany is the place where Jude Bellingham started to make the world know about his true abilities despite his tender age. After spending three seasons with Borussia Dortmund, he notched up 24 goals and 25 assists in 132 appearances in addition to his individual achievements of being the youngest captain in German Bundesliga 1 and the Player of the Year award last season. All these paved way for the 20-year-old midfield sensation to complete a move to his dream club in Real Madrid, who signed Jude Bellingham with the record transfer fee of €103 million, making him the most English player in the history of football.
The amount of money spent on the 20-year-old, coupled with other matters such as the succession of club legend and former manager Zinedine Zidane’s no. 5 jersey at the club and injuries to key members namely Thibaut Courtois, Éder Militão and Vinícius Júnior, fans at the Los Blancos camp have enormous expectations on Jude Bellingham over his Real Madrid career. Fortunately, the Stourbridge-born superstar had not disappoint anyone so far, as after only 4 games in for the team in white, he had registered a total of 6 goal contributions (5 goals and 1 assist).
Real Madrid is currently the only La Liga side who maintains a perfect record in the 2023/2024 Season and they have to thank Jude Bellingham for this sensational start to a new year. Among the goals Jude Bellingham had scored, the last two of them came as match winners, one against Celta Vigo away from home and another against Getafe in his Santiago Bernabéu debut for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
