Real Madrid midfielder Jude Bellingham cannot wait to step out onto the Wembley pitch for the Champions League final.

England’s hottest talent has already won his first league title with Los Blancos but is hungry for more as the competition concludes in London on Saturday.

Bellingham has been a revelation in Spain since joining from Borussia Dortmund last summer and will be facing his former side under the arch.

The 20-year-old has scored 23 goals and tallied 12 assists in all competitions this term and will be hoping to add to his four Champions League goals before jetting off to Euro 2024.

Speaking at Real Madrid’s media day, he said: “It’s very special for me to play this game, but we have to try to put the emotions to one side.

“It’s been a great first season, everyone has welcomed me very well.

“It’s important that we’re at our best. It’s difficult for the other teams when we play at that level.

“Our staff are analysing everything so we can win, I have 100% confidence in them.

“To play this kind of game is the reason why I’m here. I always dreamed of playing for this team and scoring goals.

“This team signifies Champions League, it’s what they always want. I want to make a little bit of history with this team.”

Should they win, Madrid would mark their 15th Champions League title, extending their current record amount.

They beat Bayern Munich in a dramatic semi-final clash at the Santiago Bernabeu despite trailing the tie with less than 10 minutes to go.
