Jude Bellingham Hoping To Break Long Standing 54 Year Old Record Held By Atletico Madrid’s Legend

Written by Olaleye Oluwadamilola

This year, Luis Aragones, the legend of Atletico Madrid may lose two of his greatest records in the same season. Jude Bellingham is aiming to accomplish a singular achievement in Spanish football history after Antoine Griezmann surpassed him as Atletico’s all-time greatest scorer.

More Details

The only midfielder in history to win Spain’s top division’s Pichichi award for top scorer is Aragones. 54 years ago, in the 1969–70 season, he scored 15 goals to accomplish this feat. Relevo narrated how Aragones and colleague Jose Eulogio Garate tied for first place in a 30-game season.

With his goal against Alaves, Bellingham now has 19 league goals for the year, one less than Artem Dovbyk of Girona, who has 20. Even though he has played a variety of positions this year, Bellingham would only be the second center midfielder in history to win the award with two games left.

In the final stages of the season, Carlo Ancelotti has stated that he will rotate his team and that Bellingham’s Pichichi pursuit was not something they were considering. Bellingham will undoubtedly be itching to play against Real Betis and Villarreal. Girona plays Granada and Valencia, and Alexander Sorloth of Villarreal plays against Osasuna as he is on 19 goals.

Meanwhile…

Barcelona is sure they can convince Nico Williams, a winger for Athletic Club, to sign with them this summer, even though the 21-year-old stated after their Copa del Rey victory that he would be staying in the Basque Country for “many more years.”

Williams’ contract was extended in November to include 2026, and it’s thought that this upped his release clause to €55 million. That will be the main barrier to any deal for Barcelona because Los Leones typically demands the entire release clause from their players instead of negotiating on their behalf. It’s unclear where Barcelona gets that money from.
