The former Juventus manager said the following on the Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE podcast:

“I want to see Bellingham as well because I remember in the first six months at Real Madrid, he was fantastic. Incredible player, but now, I think he’s a little bit tired. Musiala is also a good player but for me [Mbappe and Bellingham] is at the top [of my list].”

Bellingham enjoyed a fabulous debut season at Real Madrid following his reported €103 million switch from Borussia Dortmund last summer. He scored 23 goals and provided 13 assists in 42 appearances across competitions as Los Blancos won both La Liga and Champions League.

The young midfielder has also established himself as a key player for England despite his young age. He has already won 30 caps for the Three Lions with four goals and five assists to his name.
