But like any other sportsman, age usually catches up and the duo are no longer playing in Europe. A lot of stars have risen and been tipped to fill the void left by duo.

The likes of Kylian Mbappe, Erling Halaand, Vini Jr among other stars have been tipped to become the next big stars in world football. However, the void left by the Messi and Ronaldo is just too hard to fill.

But Guti believes a new player could have realized that there is a gap to fill and he can fill it. This is none other than English midfielder, Jude Bellingham currently playing for the Los Blancos.

Bellingham has started life on a sprint in the Spanish capital. The former Borussia Dortmund player is the leading goalscorer in the Laliga. He currently has 8 goals and 2 assists from 8 appearances in 8 games. Overall, he has netted 10 goals for his new club.

This record was only matched by Cristiano Ronaldo following his move from Manchester United I’m 2009. According to Guti, the 20 year old is going for this throne.

“[Bellingham] is the only one that’s realised there’s a throne that’s no longer for Messi or Cristiano. And that someone has to be there. … He’s going after it.”

Without a doubt, the ex Birmingham City player is on fire. And it’s waited to see if he will continue this fine form. However, asking him to film the void left by Messi and Ronaldo is something big.

He might cave in to the pressure and fail to perform to the best of his abilities if such voices start forming into his mind. Many players who have been touted to fill some big gaps have caved in to pressure and flopped massively.
