Taylor Swift fans have hijacked the Golden Boy award, Bellingham now has 89% of 3 million votes

Taylor Swift fans have hijacked the Golden Boy award, Bellingham now has 89% of 3 million votes

Fans of Taylor Swift are trying to help Real Madrid superstar Jude Bellingham win the Golden Boy award.

Jude Bellingham could get a helping hand in the race for the Golden Boy award from fans of Taylor Swift.

The Real Madrid and England superstar is arguably the leading contender to win the prize, which is given to the best player in Europe under the age of 21.

Some of the past winners include Lionel Messi, Wayne Rooney, Cesc Fabregas, Mario Balotelli, Isco, Paul Pogba, Raheem Sterling, Kylian Mbappe, Erling Haaland.

And for the last two years it's been a Barcelona player who has collected the gong, with midfield partners Pedri and Gavi both achieving recognition.

Another Cule in Alejandro Balde is in contention this time around but his chances might just be scuppered for not being a fan of Swift.

In an interview with Mundo Deportivo, Balde is quoted as saying, “Do I like Taylor Swift? No, I don't like her music".

Spanish journalist Martin Manin claims that the left-back was winning the fan section vote ahead of Bellingham by 13%.

Yet, incredibly, in a seven minute period, an insane amount of votes came in for Bellingham, who has scored five goals in his first four games for Los Blancos.

It comes after a viral tweet encouraging 'Swifty' fans to vote for Bellingham and not Balde.

At the time of writing, the Tuttosport vote now says that Bellingham has accrued a staggering 89.1% of more than 3 million votes cast.

Balde, meanwhile, is in second place on a mere 8.4% of votes, with Jamal Musiala following behind on 0.7%.

Bellingham is winning by a landslide and is almost nailed on to win the coveted prize for the first time.

The Birmingham City academy product recently became the first Englishman to win the La Liga Player of the Month award after an electric start to life in Spain.

The former Borussia Dortmund man followed that up by scoring a 95th minute winner against Getafe at the Santiago Bernabeu.
