The Real Madrid rumour mill has gone into overdrive since it emerged that Kylian Mbappe has made it known that he will be leaving Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season. Los Blancos have been linked with the French superstar for years now and it looks like next summer is their best ever opportunity to finally bring him to the Spanish capital.

Real Madrid might not even need Mbappe though. The club have been tremendous this season and lost just two games so far, both at the hands of Atletico Madrid.

One player who has played a key part in that and might be the face of the club right now is Jude Bellingham. It was just last summer that he was signed from Borussia Dortmund but it has not taken the Englishman long to establish himself as arguably the best on the planet.

If Real Madrid win the Champions League this season, one would expect Bellingham to be the one holding the Ballon d'Or at the next ceremony. So, what are his thoughts on Mbappe joining Real Madrid?

Bellingham's feelings on Mbappe joining Real Madrid

Bellingham has already made his feelings about Mbappe joining Real Madrid clear in the past. As reported by SPORTbible, back in June, he was asked about the matter and the Englishman said:

"I can't really comment, I don't know his situation. If anything, my whole saga has taught me that not everything you see is true.

“He's a great player, whatever he chooses to do, all the best to him. Would I like to play with a player like Kylian Mbappe? Who wouldn’t?"

Thus, it looks like Bellingham was pretty open to the idea of playing with Mbappe back in June. One wonders whether those feelings have changed since then, as he has spent half a season at Real Madrid and become a key player in Carlo Ancelotti's side.

The only worry that many fans have about signing Mbappe is whether it would disrupt the balance that Real Madrid have been successful in building up with their current squad. Of course, the Frenchman is one of the best players in the world if not the very best. But sometimes, having a great team is not about having all the best individual players.
