Real Madrid target Jude Bellingham has been named the Bundesliga’s player of the season.

The England international won the award just two days after his club Borussia Dortmund missed out on the Bundesliga title to Bayern Munich on the final day of the season – losing the title on goal difference.

Bellingham has made more than 130 appearances since joining Dortmund from Birmingham for just over £20million three years ago.

According to reports, Bellingham will be a Real Madrid player next season, with Real Madrid believed to have reached an agreement an Borussia Dortmund for the 19-year-old.

Bellingham will play a crucial role in midfield for Real next season, as the Los Blancos try to fight for the La Liga and Champions League.

“Every year or half year that I’ve played at the club, my responsibility in the team has increased,” Bellingham was quoted as saying on the official Bundesliga website.

“I have to continue to be everywhere on the pitch and try my best to contribute going forwards and backwards and try and control games, try to dominate the midfield.

“My teammates, the coaches and the staff have helped me to develop.

“I came to the club as a talented lad, but I have added elements to my game that have taken it to the next level and I think that’s down to them, mainly.”
