While the football world praises the emerging star of Real Madrid, there are dissenting voices, particularly from the Etihad. Jude Bellingham’s standout display against Napoli didn’t sit well with Pep Guardiola, who is visibly displeased.

Across Europe, accolades pour in, global audiences are amazed, and Real Madrid wonders where Bellingham’s limits lie. However, one notable figure is yet to join the chorus of praise, and he has his reasons. Pep Guardiola is deeply frustrated by what unfolded last night.

With a goal reminiscent of Cristiano Ronaldo’s style, Zinedine Zidane-like ball control, pinpoint long-range passes, and a Modric-worthy outside-assist, Bellingham’s performance has left Madrid in awe, questioning whether the amount paid for his signing is too modest.

Meanwhile, at the Etihad, there’s a belief that the opportunity to secure Bellingham has slipped away permanently.

Guardiola still can’t comprehend how they let a talent like Bellingham slip through their fingers. Despite Manchester City’s efforts, even offering more money than Madrid, Guardiola watches as Bellingham becomes the standout performer at the Bernabéu. He believed this could have easily unfolded in the north of the UK.

“He was perfect to play here,” Guardiola repeatedly conveys to the City owners. He laments not being able to retain the midfield maestro of the next decade. It’s a significant loss for the sky-blue side of Manchester, and Guardiola fears a scenario like this won’t repeat itself. There are regrets and apprehensions looking ahead to 2024.

It’s essential to recall that Bellingham acknowledged discussions with Guardiola, but his destiny was clear. Guardiola sees the failure to convince the player to return to England as a personal disappointment.

The Premier League’s project of the century took a hit, and witnessing performances like Wednesday’s only fuels a massive frustration on his bench as he contemplates what has been lost.
