Unrest at Real Madrid camp as Jude Bellingham leaves training early

Real Madrid is awaiting confirmation regarding the reason for Jude Bellingham’s early departure from their second-to-last training session before their derby against Atletico Madrid.

Los Blancos are already facing absences from Dani Carvajal, Vinicius Junior, Arda Guler, Eder Militao, and Thibaut Courtois for their upcoming Sunday night match. Diario AS reports that Bellingham left the training session early, holding his stomach.

Medical staff remain optimistic that he will be available for their final training session and the match against Atletico. However, it’s unclear whether his issue is related to a stomach injury or illness.

Real Madrid has a history of initially offering optimistic injury or illness assessments that later turn into more significant problems. If Bellingham is dealing with an illness, there is a good chance he could recover in time for the Atletico Madrid match.

Bellingham’s absence would pose a significant challenge for Carlo Ancelotti. With six goals and one assist in their 11 goals this season, the decision to build the attack around Bellingham has been successful for the Italian.

However, his absence would leave the team with fewer options against Atletico. Rodrygo Goes and Joselu Mato would likely start, and if Ancelotti wants to maintain a similar system, he may turn to either Brahim Diaz or Luka Modric to replace Bellingham if necessary.
