Jude Bellingham could miss up to four Real Madrid games if it is ruled that the England star did call Mason Greenwood a ‘rapist’ during their game two weeks ago. 

Footage circulating on social media led fans to believe they noticed Bellingham mutter the insult at the Getafe forward when the two sides came up against each other at the start of February. 

Greenwood’s club reported Bellingham for the second-half incident, and an expert report has been produced to try and understand what happened during the heated clash. 

COPE report that the Real Madrid star could be sanctioned for up to four games, according to the regulations, if it is deemed that he did utter the alleged insult to Greenwood. 

The Spanish outlet also report that the Spanish FA’s Competition Committee already has possession of the report from a lip-reading expert, after it was ordered by RFEF in the days following the incident.

Expert witness and forensic lip-reader Jeremy Freeman had told Mail Sport that he is ’97 per cent confident’ that Bellingham did mouth the insult at Greenwood during their meeting on Thursday February 1.

The next step will see an investigating judge gather all the available information about what happened, and in about 15 days, they will propose for a sanction, or a dismissal of Getafe’s complaint, depending on their conclusion.

From there, the clubs will have a further 10 business days to present their own cases. 

A goal from Joselu in each half gave Real Madrid a 2-0 away win over Getafe, which they have since followed up with a draw against Atletico Madrid and an impressive 4-0 victory over Girona on Saturday.  

Bellingham injured his left ankle in the win over Girona, and will be out for about three weeks, but he is expected to be available for England’s games against Brazil and Belgium in March.

Greenwood mutually agreed to leave former side Manchester United on loan following the conclusion of an internal investigation into the player’s conduct. 

Greenwood had previously been charged with attempted rape, assault, and coercive behaviour in January 2022, but the charges were dropped in February 2023 by the Crown Prosecution Service following the withdrawal of key witnesses.
