Real Madrid have unveiled their first star signing of the season. Jude Bellingham has left Borussia Dortmund and has the opportunity to take away the bad taste in the mouths of the fans after the poor performance of Eden Hazard during his time at Carlo Ancelotti's side.

The interest began a year ago, when they were already beginning to test the waters to see how much the German side would want for the talented English midfielder, who already had a taste of being part of the England national team at the Qatar 2022 World Cup, where they failed to reach the top places.

However, Bellingham's quality is already beginning to draw comparisons. Something similar will be happening to Vinicius Jr, who just got the number 7 on his back. An important burden, considering that the last star to get it was Cristiano Ronaldo.

But the social networks have already started with an important comparison of a historic Spanish player who could have been a UEFA Champions League champion, not only as a player at the beginning of the millennium, but also as an emerging coach who became one of the best on the planet: Zinedine Zidane.

Why is Bellingham being compared to Zidane?

Several media outlets have brought up the memory of Zinedine Zidane's introduction to the Real Madrid team. Curious that he arrived with the number 5 on his back. And that this is also the number with which Jude Bellingham is being presented today at the Santiago Bernabeu in Spain.
