The €103 million summer signing continued the remarkable start to his Real Madrid career with a record-breaking feat at the weekend.

Jude Bellingham is the Real Madrid player with the most goals (14) in his first 15 matches in the club’s illustrious 121-year history.

The 20-year-old hit the record books on Sunday by scoring Real Madrid’s third goal in a 3-0 victory over Cadiz. He made his mark in the 74th minute of the match, with a stunning left-footed finish.

With this goal, Bellingham now has 14 goals in his opening 15 appearances for Real Madrid. This has seen him surpass the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Alfredo Di Stefano, and Pruden, who all scored a record 13 goals in their first 15 outings.

What’s even more astounding is that this season has turned into a goal-scoring extravaganza for Bellingham. With 14 goals already under his belt, he has equaled his most prolific scoring season in his club career. Last season, during his time with Borussia Dortmund, he achieved the same number of goals, but in a span of 42 matches.

Real Madrid will hope their €103 million summer signing will continue his form, as they look to reclaim the title in LaLiga.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men are currently top of the rankings, although the race is far from over. Girona have the opportunity to reclaim the top spot if they emerge victorious against Athletic Bilbao on Monday.
