The England international has dazzled in LaLiga since his summer move from Borussia Dortmund

Jude Bellingham has reportedly been 'left stunned' after it emerged the Real Madrid star could face a 10-match ban.

The England international has been nothing short of sensational since his move from Borussia Dortmund back in the summer, bagging 20 goals from 29 appearances across all competitions.

Bellingham has proved to be a key player for Carlo Ancelotti's side and is driving their pursuit of a LaLiga and Champions League double.

However, according to The Sun, the 20-year-old could be in hot water following a recent match with Getafe.

The match on February 1 ended 2-0 to Real, with Joselu bagging both goals.

But Bellingham has been accused of calling Mason Greenwood a 'rapist' during the contest in Spain.

Getafe have made an official complaint to LaLiga over the allegations, with the league referring the conflict to the competition committee of the RFEF.

The RFEF, the country's federation, are now appointing a judge to fully investigate the claim.

The judge in question will then decide over the next two weeks whether Bellingham is punished.

If found guilty, and the incident is considered 'serious', Bellingham is in line for a four-match ban.

However, should it be deemed as 'grave', he could apparently be suspended for as many as 10 games.

Both Getafe and Real would have 10 days to appeal the decision.

Bellingham and Real, per the publication, are surprised the league have decided to get the football federation involved in the dispute despite inconclusive evidence.

Getafe are adamant Bellingham called Greenwood a 'rapist'. However, there are also theories the midfielder dubbed the Manchester United loanee 'rubbish' instead.

Greenwood was arrested in January 2022 and later charged with attempted rape.

Prosecutors dropped the case in February last year, however.

The CPS based said the decision was based on 'a combination of the withdrawal of key witnesses and new material that came to light, which meant there was no longer a realistic prospect of conviction.' Greenwood always denied the charges against him and is now back on the pitch.

Reports in the summer said United, Greenwood's parent club, initially intended to bring the striker back into the fold at Old Trafford.

Following a big backlash, however, they performed a U-turn and shipped the forward out to Spain instead. Greenwood has scored five goals, and also clocked up five assists, during his time in Europe so far.

After the alleged incident regarding Bellingham and Greenwood, meanwhile, Getafe chief Jose Bordales defended the United forward.

He said: "I know the same thing that you know. It's not up to me, it's the club, LaLiga and the Federation that have to make an assessment about it.
