Real Madrid star Jude Bellingham is set to win the 2023 Golden Boy award, according to Marca.

The announcement will be made by Italian newspaper Tuttosport on December 4. 

The 20-year-old was at the top of his game on Saturday as he inspired his side to a 2-1 victory at Barcelona

The Catalans went in front after Ilkay Gundogan scored in the sixth minute, but a superb brace from Bellingham helped Madrid win the El Clasico fixture

The attacking midfielder’s second goal came in stoppage time when he tapped in the winner after a deflected cross fell to him. 

The result moved Madrid four points ahead of their bitter rivals at the top of the La Liga standings

Bellingham has made a spectacular start to life in Spain since arriving at the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, netting 13 goals in 13 appearances across all competitions. 

The England ace has started 10 La Liga matches averaging 1.4 tackles, 2.4 shots and 1.5 key passes per game. Meanwhile, his passing accuracy is almost 90 percent (as per WhoScored). 

Bellingham has also scored in all three Champions League group matches against Union Berlin, Napoli and Braga this term.
