Rio Ferdinand: Jude Bellingham should choose Real Madrid

Jude Bellingham will certainly be one of the most sought-after players during the summer. This great midfielder is linked with a large number of clubs. Liverpool seem to be the most interested. However, the question is whether Jude will choose the club from Anfield.
Rio Ferdinand commented on Bellingham and talked about his potential decision in the future: “Liverpool have ruled themselves out now, (but) I think if they said they would have liked him, there was still a chance he may have gone to Liverpool,” Ferdinand said, as quoted by eurosport.com.
“Just because he believes in himself and would back himself to be the catalyst to get them back up again, which then amplifies his character and his stardust.
That maybe is something that would have excited him. Man United might offer that, but the problem is that United’s priority is a centre-forward and that’s very secondary.
It’s a lot of money and I don’t think they can do both."
Rio Ferdinand on Jude Bellingham
Ferdinand believes that the best environment for Bellingham is Real Madrid. They have many promising players on its roster.
“If I’m him now, I probably go to Real Madrid. They’ve got a great blend of experience and young players. You’ve got (Edoardo) Camavinga, (Federico) Valverde and (Aurelien) Tchouameni, three of the other best young midfielders in the world as well in that squad.
They’re building for success over a good period of time”. Peter Crouch believes there are good reasons why Bellingham should choose Real Madrid. That would be a big thing for him, but also for England. Everyone is well aware of the qualities of this 19-year-old midfielder.
An interesting summer awaits us. “With Liverpool, the problem now is you can’t guarantee him Champions League footbal," Crouch said. "It’s looking very unlikely they’re going to get that now.
If you’re Jude Bellingham, do you miss out on a year of Champions League football? I don’t think you do.
Especially when you’ve got a host of clubs (to choose from) - Manchester City, Real Madrid…
If he doesn’t go to Liverpool, there’s something about wearing that white of Real Madrid. Being an English player and playing there, I think he ends up being England captain if he goes and lifts trophies in the Champions League there”.
