From Golden Boy to recordbreaker Jude Bellingham’s rise at Real Madrid is truly remarkable. Matching Mbappe in just a year proves his potential.


Young talents rise and fall like tides in soccer, but there’s one name that’s making waves – Jude Bellingham. The 20-year-old England midfielder has won the hearts of Madridistas and has now clinched the coveted 2023 Golden Boy title. At just a tender age, Bellingham has already achieved remarkable milestones, leaving an indelible mark on the sport. However, with his Golden Boy Award win, the Englishman has matched a remarkable feat that PSG star Kylian Mbappe set.

With Bellingham leveling Mbappe’s achievement, it puts him in the same league as the electrifying Frenchman. Bellingham’s recent awards have further cemented his position as one of the most promising young players in the world.

Bellingham’s meteoric rise to prominence has been nothing short of extraordinary. His transition from Borussia Dortmund to Real Madrid last summer has marked a turning point in his career. Bellingham’s impressive performance has not gone unnoticed, earning him a staggering amount of votes. Bellingham garnered 97% of the votes in the 2023 Golden Boy award. By doing so, the Englishman matched the exact same percentage achieved by PSG sensation Kylian Mbappe in 2017.

This major feat achieved by Jude Bellingham not only underscores the immense talent he possesses but also draws comparisons with one of the brightest stars in Europe. Kylian Mbappe gathered everyone’s attention when he burst onto the scene with Monaco in the 2016-17 season. As a result, the French star was awarded the prestigious Golden Boy award in 2017.

Since he arrived at Real Madrid for a reported $112 million from Borussia Dortmund, Bellingham has seamlessly integrated into the squad, boasting his versatility and adaptability. With his name on this year’s Golden Boy title, the England star has joined an illustrious list of past winners, which includes Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Erling Haaland.

Jude Bellingham is the top scorer in La Liga with 10 goals in 11 matches and has netted another three in as many appearances in the Champions League. His impressive goal-scoring record, combined with his ability to control the tempo of the game and dictate play, has left fans and pundits alike in awe.

While shining in the spotlight of the Golden Boy Award, Jude Bellingham chose to remain humble and hungry for more. In a heartfelt statement after the win, the Real Madrid star stated, “I’d like to thank everyone who has been part of my journey so far in Birmingham, Dortmund, and now Madrid. It wouldn’t be possible without them.”

Bellingham continued by expressing his gratitude towards his family. “Lastly and most importantly, my family, who gives me the support, motivation, and love every day to keep motivating. Now I have this prestigious award I want to keep going. I want to keep pushing the limits of my potential and hopefully many more trophies to come,” he stated.

As fans and experts celebrate the rise of Jude Bellingham, the echoes of Mbappe’s past achievements resonate. The England international will certainly be a force to reckon with, and all eyes will be on him when he returns to action with Real Madrid.
