“Kevin de Bruyne is the perfect midfielder!” says Jude Bellingham

This football season has seen the rise of English midfielder Jude Bellingham. His move from Borussia Dortmund to Real Madrid has been magical. He is one of the best midfielders in football at the moment and has contributed in every match. Looking at his performances, he is compared to many great midfielders, including Kevin de Bruyne.

When Jude Bellingham was asked about his thoughts on de Bruyne, he said something that many of us would agree on.

Jude Bellingham, on Kevin de Bruyne, said:

“Kevin de Bruyne is probably the closest thing you can get in world football to a perfect midfielder.”

Undoubtedly, de Bruyne is one of the most underrated names in football history. His performances have been overshadowed by the debate between Messi and Ronaldo. De Bruyne’s name deserves to be along with Messi and Ronaldo.

Is Kevin De Bruyne one of the greatest midfielders?

The Belgian footballer made his professional football career debut with Genk in 2008. He was a star performer on the team, and slowly teams started to recognize his game. Later in 2012, Chelsea signed him, and this was one of the biggest moves of his career.

But due to a star-studded lineup, he warmed the bench and didn’t get many chances. As a result, he was loaned to two different clubs between 2012 to 2015. He represented Werder Bremen from 2012 to 2013 and VfL Wolfsburg from 2014 to 2015.

Later, he was transferred to Manchester City in 2015. At that time, no one knew the havoc he would create in football.

From 2015 to the present, he has made over 350 appearances and has been one of the best performers for the team. He has scored over 100 goals and provided 170 assists. He has completely defined the role of a midfielder and has led his team to multiple titles. Undoubtedly, De Bruyne is one of the greatest midfielders.
