Jude Bellingham set for special honour that Lionel Messi, Ronaldinho and David Beckham also received
| Last updated
Jude Bellingham's status is set to be elevated even further, with the Real Madrid sensation set for a special honour which will put him on the same company as Lionel Messi, Ronaldinho and David Beckham.
He's scored 18 times for Los Blancos in all competitions and off the pitch, the 20-year-old has quickly blossomed into a marketing machine.
He is the face of Adidas' new Predator 24 campaign, continuing the legacy forged by David Beckham and Zinedine Zidane - and also had a hand in designing the boots for the 30th anniversary.
And recent reports suggest that his association with the three striped brand is set to improve.
According to Footy Headlines, Adidas are set to launch a signature logo for the former Borussia Dortmund star in the near future.
The decision appears to be aligned with Bellingham getting his own signature Predator 24 boots as he is an "elite ambassador" for the cleat.
And while there is no exact confirmation on what the design will look like, the website believes Bellingham's trademark arms-out celebration will simply have to feature in some capacity.
But of course the biggest example would be NBA icon Michael Jordan, whose Jumpman logo became a successful sub-brand of Nike.
Last year it was reported that Bellingham filed official trademarks with the UK’s Intellectual Property Office in his name for opportunities in areas like food, alcohol and clothes and was granted a ten-year legal protection to market products.
He also has his eye on home security services.
