One of Jude Bellingham’s Real Madrid team-mates is said to take the Englishman to training at the Valdebebas training centre.

The England star has settled into life at Real without a hitch, having scored 10 goals and provided three assists in his first 10 games in the Spanish capital and won two player of the month awards in a row.

Off the field, Bellingham also appears to have formed close bonds with his Real Madrid teammates.

Indeed, according to The Athletic, when Bellingham’s schedule allows him to be free, he goes out to dinner with Vinicius Jr. and Eder Militao.

Moreover, when he first arrived, the 20-year-old reportedly went for lunch with two other summer arrivals, Brahim Diaz and Arda Guler, in a private room at the famous De Maria restaurant.

Since securing his initial €100 million-plus move from Borussia Dortmund in June, Bellingham has appeared to impress his team-mates.

His bond with Vinicius Jr in particular is so close that the Brazilian star sometimes picks up and sends the English midfielder to train.

“His mother is very close to Bellinghma, she is very important. She helps him, advises him, takes him to Valdebebas and when she can’t, he usually goes with Vinicius’ car,” a club source said.

Indeed, Vinicius Jr had been writing to Bellingham for several months before the summer move, trying to convince him to join Real Madrid.
