Adidas will launch a special design in Jude Bellingham’s honor following his meteoric climb to football superstardom.
After spending £88 million to join Real Madrid, the midfield player has created a name for himself on the international scene. The former Dortmund midfielder has also helped the team get to the top of the La Liga standings this season.
The England international has 18 goals in 28 games across all competitions for Los Blancos. During his time as a Meringues, he got the 2023 Golden Boy Award in November.
Bellingham has swiftly established himself as one of the world’s best football players, and with that comes limitless marketing opportunities.
The 20-year-old is already the elite spokesperson for the Predator footwear silo. It appears that Bellingham will be highly featured in the forthcoming version.
Adidas pays tribute to the English forward
According to Footy Headlines, this year’s unique Predator 24 sneaker logo has Bellingham’s well-known open-arms celebration as its focal point.
The celebration has quickly spread around LaLiga, with spectators in the stands cutting short their celebrations to emulate the motion everytime he scores.
Despite his young age, Bellingham has taken on the role as the club’s star following Karim Benzema’s departure this summer.
Bellingham has been employed in a more advanced role under manager Carlo Ancelotti, and his goal involvement rate has increased from 0.4 per 90 minutes for former club Borussia Dortmund in 2022/23 to 1.17 this season.
The former Birmingham City player admits to enjoying his new surroundings, but he is also surprised by the club’s size.
