Jude Bellingham has made a resounding impact at Real Madrid, outshining even the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo.

Jude Bellingham has been making headlines at Real Madrid, impressing fans and pundits alike with his stellar performances. La Liga TV pundit, Andrea Orlandi, even drew comparisons between Bellingham's impact at Los Blancos and Cristiano Ronaldo's early days at the club.

Bellingham's Impact at Real Madrid

Bellingham's arrival at Real Madrid from Borussia Dortmund last summer has been nothing short of remarkable. The young midfielder has quickly become a vital player for the team, scoring 20 goals and providing nine assists in just 31 matches. His seamless transition into the squad has caught the attention of many football enthusiasts.

Comparisons with Cristiano Ronaldo

According to La Liga pundit Andrea Orlandi, Bellingham's impact at Real Madrid has been quicker than even that of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Orlandi highlighted Bellingham's immediate contributions from pre-season, drawing attention to his incredible football intelligence, technical ability, and on-field presence.

"Yes, he (Ronaldo) did score quite a lot of goals when he joined the club, but you could see that wasn’t the real him up until a couple of months," Orlandi told Daily Star.

"With Bellingham, it was from pre-season, his first game I think he scored. And then in La Liga, it was the same. I knew he’d be very good but I thought in three or four years. "

"He comes here and just destroys the league really and decides to be the best player. And in a club where Vinicius is there, Rodrygo, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, he’s gone ‘I’m the best’."
