Jude Bellingham hilariously hit back at Aurelien Tchouameni after being trolled by his Real Madrid teammate.
The 20-year-old has settled quickly into life in Spain – scoring on his LaLiga debut last weekend in the 2-0 win against Athletic Bilbao.

He has now joined in with the banter after his midfield partner Tchouameni taunted him over his goal in France’s World Cup victory over England.
Tchouameni broke the deadlock in Les Bleus’ 2-1 quarter-final win in December with a fine strike from outside the box.
His effort went through the legs of Bellingham as he raced out to close him down before the ball nestled into the bottom left corner.
And during Los Blancos training, an almost identical picture was taken with Bellingham looking to block a Tchouameni strike.
Quick to poke fun at the former Borussia Dortmund star, the 23-year-old shared two images – one from the World Cup and the other from their recent session.
Tagging Bellingham in his Twitter post, he said: “Same action, but not the same finish today.”
Replying to the upload, Bellingham simply stated: “Thought we agreed not to talk about that day…”
Real fans will be hoping their budding friendship will blossom into a formidable partnership in the middle of the pitch.

And while his new teammates appear to be getting on well with Bellingham, the same can’t be said for his ex-Dortmund colleagues.
German media have claimed that the BVB squad were ‘glad’ to see the Three Lions international depart this summer.
It has been said they took issue with the youngster’s behaviour, moody attitude and tendency to criticise the players.
