In what promises to be an intriguing reshuffle at Real Madrid, Jude Bellingham’s remarkable debut season may face hurdles with the anticipated arrival of Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain.

Bellingham, who has been a revelation since his £88 million move from Borussia Dortmund, contributing 23 goals and 12 assists in 40 appearances, might see a shift in his role at the club.

Kylian Mbappe, long pursued by Real president Florentino Perez, is set to become the newest member of the prestigious Galacticos. His integration into the team, however, raises questions about the roles of existing stars, including Bellingham and Vinicius Junior.

Former footballer William Gallas suggests that Mbappe’s presence could significantly alter the team dynamics.

“Vinicius Jr has been brilliant for Real Madrid, and if he wins the Champions League, I think he will win the Ballon d’Or,” Gallas told Genting Casino.

“I don’t know what is going to happen when Kylian Mbappe comes to Real Madrid, because playing down the middle is not his position. I would not be surprised to see a front three of Vinicius Jr, Mbappe and Rodrygo, with Mbappe down the middle, then the next season they sell Vinicius Jr.

“I don’t think Mbappe playing down the middle will restrict Jude Bellingham. When he was at Dortmund, Bellingham did not play as high up the pitch as he does for Real Madrid, and he was still a great player. Bellingham will play behind Mbappe next season, he will properly be a part of a three-man midfield. I don’t expect Bellingham to score anywhere near the amount of goals he’s scored this season.‌

“He started well, but we’ve seen his goalscoring levels decrease in the last month or two. Bellingham is a midfielder, and he won’t have the system from this season to get the same amount of goals next year, and his Spanish opponents know what to expect from him now.”
