Jude Bellingham has been Real Madrid's star player this season so far. Signed in the summer from Borussia Dortmund for a transfer package believed to be around €134 million, expectations were always high surrounding the England international. It would be safe to say though that he has been successful in surpassing all of them.

Not even a year since arriving at Real Madrid, Bellingham is the face of the club. The landscape could be about to change once again next summer though, with a move for Kylian Mbappe finally looking set to become a reality.

Real Madrid have been linked with a move for Mbappe for many years now. Next summer seems to be the perfect opportunity to make it happen, with the Frenchman leaving PSG at the end of his contract to become a free agent. Some outlets have even claimed that an agreement is already in place between the World Cup winner and Los Blancos.

Some players might need to adjust in order to make room for him in the starting XI though. As reported by BBC, Carlo Ancelotti has already thought about how he will use Mbappe in his team. It will see Bellingham playing a deeper role, Vinicius Jr playing on the left and the Frenchman playing left of centre.

This is one worry that many Real Madrid fans have had regarding a move for Mbappe. Will the tweaks that will have to be made to fit him into the team be worth it?

Real Madrid are already a winning side. They are top of the La Liga and have won all of their Champions League games so far this season. Ancelotti's team have lost only two games, both at the hands of Atletico Madrid, who seem to be their kryptonite.

Will bringing in someone like Mbappe improve this Real Madrid team? Or will it have a negative impact on the balance they have been able to build?
