Trent Alexander-Arnold saw his congratulatory message to Jude Bellingham hijacked by pleading Real Madrid fans. The Liverpool vice-captain was among those to pay tribute to Bellingham after Real's Champions League final win.

Carlo Ancelotti's side won the competition for a 15th time by beating Borussia Dortmund 2-0 at Wembley. Dani Carvajal and Vinicius Jr were on target with Bellingham setting up the Brazilian for his side's second goal.

The victory capped a remarkable first season in Spain for the England international. His 23 goals helped Real win the title and saw him crowned La Liga Player of the Year before the Champions League success.

But Real fans had other things on their mind after Alexander-Arnold's prediction about his international teammate. In a comment on Bellingham's Instagram post celebrating the Wembley win, he wrote: "1st of… Congratulations, brother."

A number of supporters replied to the comment, simply writing 'come to Madrid' with Alexander-Arnold having reportedly emerged as a transfer target for the European champions. Some Liverpool fans did manage to get their opinion across, with one telling him 'don't even think about it!'

The 25-year-old is out of contract at Anfield in 2025 and agreeing a new deal is likely to be a priority for Arne Slot and new sporting director Richard Hughes. Yet Spanish publication Relevo claims Real is looking to capitalize on the contract uncertainty and plans to launch a charm offensive, to try and lure him to the Bernabeu.

The pair could have been teammates at Anfield, as well as at international level, with Liverpool heavily linked with Bellingham last summer. The Reds ultimately had to prioritize overhauling its midfield, rather than making one blockbuster signing, with four new faces arriving.

Jurgen Klopp did namecheck the 20-year-old this week during his farewell event with supporters. In a defense of FSG's spending, he suggested Bellingham, as well as Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland, would have only ended up at Anfield if the club had 'unlimited money'.

Liverpool.com says: Alexander-Arnold's post was simply in support of his international teammate and pal, despite what some Real Madrid fans may think. He has another year left on his Liverpool deal and is the next captain of the club, so sorting a new deal must be a priority for the Reds this summer.
