Ronaldo would love to see Haaland, Mbappe and Bellingham team up at Real Madrid

Former Brazil striker Ronaldo would relish the possibility of Erling Haaland, Kylian Mbappe and Jude Bellingham teaming up together at Real Madrid.

Bellingham has made a wonderful start to his Madrid career following his switch from Borussia Dortmund and leads the goalscoring charts with 16 from 22 league starts. He is expected to be joined at the Bernabeu by Mbappe with the France captain having told Paris Saint-Germain he will leave the club at the end of the season.

Haaland is still nothing more than a dream for Madrid even though they will have been encouraged by the Norway striker last week refusing to commit his long-term future to Manchester City.

Should the three players ever turn out for Madrid, Ronaldo believes it would be similar to the Galacticos team that he played in alongside the likes of Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham and Luis Figo.

He told the Daily Mail, as part of a Paddy Power promotion: “Real Madrid’s policy is to have the best players in the world. Haaland is one of the best players in the world. Everyone wants to have Haaland. He is at an unbelievable club.

“City are doing an amazing job, I think he is very happy there at the moment. But, we will see. I hope we can see all of those players together in the one club. It will remind me of the Galacticos if they all [Haaland, Mbappe and Bellingham] do end up at Real Madrid.

“If it happens, it’s going to be crazy. Watching Real Madrid playing with all of those players together. It will be an unbelievable team that will achieve remarkable things.

“But I think it’s going to be a great challenge for Carlo Ancelotti to manage all of those players. But, putting good players together is easier than putting bad players together. It won’t be too much of a problem for the coach.”

Ronaldo has been impressed by Bellingham’s impact at Madrid, even comparing him with former France great Zidane, while he hopes the rumours of Mbappe’s impending move to Spain are correct.

He added: “We have to wait until it’s official before talking about it in detail, but everyone is excited about Kylian Mbappe in Madrid. He is an amazing player. He is going to be one of the best players in this moment. I think it’s a very good choice for him if he joins Madrid. I think he will finally get the Ballon d’Or if he joins Real.

“I don’t know what is true but people are talking about his situation at PSG. For sure, in Madrid he will have a team supporting him with every decision he makes. He will have a team to support him on the field and off the field as well. They will protect him. But, I think he had a very good time at PSG.

“Of course, PSG made a big effort to keep hold of him. He was the big star of the PSG project. But, we will see what happens with Mbappe at Real Madrid. One thing is for sure and that’s that we are going to enjoy a lot more of Mbappe for the coming years.”
