Madrid’s New Saga: Bellingham, Haaland, Mbappe

A soccer player is interviewed pitch-side as another player stretches in the background, awaiting the auto draft.

Jude Bellingham, the star in the making at Real Madrid, has stirred the pot by seemingly putting Erling Haaland a notch above Kylian Mbappe. Yeah, you heard it right. In a snippet that’s been doing the rounds on social media, Bellingham and his buddy, Aurelien Tchouameni, got into a bit of a tiff about these two football phenoms. Imagine, sitting there, and out comes this debate about who’s the real MVP.

So, there’s Bellingham, having a laugh and reminiscing about his days with Haaland at Borussia Dortmund. “He’s an unbelievable guy,” he goes, praising Haaland to the skies. But Tchouameni? He’s not having any of it. “We don’t care,” he shoots back, with Eduardo Camavinga chiming in, telling him to zip it. Yet, Tchouameni stands his ground, uninterested in the Haaland praise fest.

The kicker comes when Bellingham throws a playful jab at Tchouameni’s English accent and drops the bomb – hinting Haaland’s better than Tchouameni’s “boy,” widely believed to be Mbappe. “Nah, bro,” Tchouameni counters, clearly not on board with the idea.

Amidst all this banter, it’s worth noting that Mbappe’s been on Real Madrid’s radar for what feels like ages. After a rollercoaster of will-he-won’t-he, it seems he’s finally bound for Madrid, leaving PSG behind. And with talks of Haaland possibly joining the mix, Real’s dream team is just around the corner.

But hey, let’s not forget the big picture. Real Madrid’s sitting pretty at the top of La Liga, eyes firmly set on the prize. And as we edge closer to Mbappe making his grand entrance, the stage is set for some thrilling action. Luis Enrique, PSG’s boss, didn’t mince words either, dubbing Mbappe the best in the world, a sentiment many share.
