Real Madrid defender, David Alaba, has hailed England youngster, Jude Bellingham, as one of the greatest midfield talents in the world.
Alaba has faced Bellingham during his time in the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich.
Bellingham has established himself as an indispensable member of the Borussia Dortmund squad over the past two seasons.
The 19-year-old, who has been heavily linked with a 2023 summer move to Real Madrid and Liverpool, has three years left on his current deal with Dortmund.
He joined the Bundesliga from Birmingham City for an initial £25 million in 2020.
Bellingham has registered 12 goals and 19 assists in 98 appearances across all competitions for Dortmund.
Speaking to Welt (via GOAL), Alaba said, “As for Bellingham as a player, I can say that he is one of the greatest midfield talents in the world.
“And that at a young age! At just 19, he leads the team, doesn’t hide and already decides games with his style of play.”
