Bellingham or Vinicius? Real Madrid settles on the “deserving” of the Ballon d’Or

It seems clear that the battle for the Ballon d’Or this season will not take place between Real Madrid players after the amazing season presented by all the Merengue stars at various levels.

Two names stand out specifically from Real Madrid, namely Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Junior, while from outside Real Madrid, there are nominations for Kylian Mbappe, Harry Kane, and Phil Foden.

According to the newspaper “Marca”, everyone in the Real Madrid locker room leans towards Vinicius as the most deserving of winning the Ballon d’Or in 2024.

The newspaper indicates that inside the Merengue dressing room, there is a clear intention to start a major campaign entitled “Vinicius must win the Ballon d’Or 2024.”

The choice of Vinicius seems very logical, given that he is the main factor in Real Madrid reaching the Champions League final, and he also had an exceptional season at the local level.

Although Bellingham also had a very good season, the Englishman himself realizes that what Vinicius did was exceptional, and nothing is more evident than the fact that he himself declared that “Vini is the best player in the world.”

The 23-year-old scored 21 goals and assisted 11 others, and is the player who has contributed the most goals for Real Madrid in all tournaments this season.

Perhaps what will decide whether Vinicius wins the Ballon d’Or is what will happen in the Copa America next summer, and if another player shines in the Euros as well.
