5 Players Who Scored The Most Goals In Debut Season

Real Madrid are widely hailed as the greatest club in the world. They have a trophy-laden past, a thriving present, and a bright future, making them the ultimate destination for the most sought-after players.

Throughout history, Real Madrid have signed many top talents, but only a handful have managed to hit the ground running in the hallowed grounds of the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. Today, we will take a look at said anomalies, at players who defied expectations in their first season at the club.

Below, we will check out the top five players who have scored the most goals in their debut campaign and briefly discuss their Real Madrid journey. Now, without further ado, let’s begin!

#5 Jude Bellingham — 21 Goals*

Real Madrid Superstar Jude Bellingham Has Scored 21 Goals This Season

Kicking off the list is 20-year-old midfielder Jude Bellingham. The England international, who joined the club from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2023, has already scored a whopping 21 goals in 37 matches in all competitions. The 2023 Golden Boy winner has also chipped in with 10 assists thus far. No Madrid player has been directly involved in more goals than Bellingham this season.

Bellingham has operated as an auxiliary forward in Carlo Ancelotti’s 4-3-1-2 system. He has linked up flawlessly with Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo, dropped deep to defend, and applied finishes any forward would be proud of. If he can keep this up, he will be a solid contender for the 2024 Ballon d’Or.

#4 Gareth Bale — 22 Goals

The Welshman did not do his reputation any harm in his debut 2013-14 season, recording 22 goals and 19 assists in 44 games. Bale scored a goal each in the UEFA Champions League and Copa del Rey finals, firing the club to both cups.
