Mercato: it’s official, Kylian Mbappé is a Real Madrid player!

It was only a matter of days. On June 3, the news was announced by Real Madrid: Kylian Mbappé was becoming a Madrid player. Under contract at Paris Saint-Germain until June 30, the captain of the France team, who is preparing to face Belgium this Monday in the round of 16 of Euro 2024, however had to wait until July 1 to officially belong to the White House. Almost a month later, here we are, the attacker no longer has any links with PSG.

This news will undoubtedly please the Merengues, who will now be able to sell jerseys bearing the name of the Frenchman. From this Monday, these will bloom with the number 9 on the back, Karim Benzema’s former number. Kylian Mbappé will indeed have to wait before recovering the number 10 that he wears in the French team, this one being on Luka Modric’s shoulders for one more season.

Presentation scheduled for July 16

The captain of the Blues will have to wait before being presented to the Madrid fans. Currently in Germany for Euro 2024, where he is experiencing a mixed competition after breaking his nose in the opening match against Austria, the former Paris Saint-Germain player will be entitled to his ceremony on Tuesday, July 16, two days after the Euro final. Real Madrid is also hoping to have a full stadium for the occasion, with 85,000 supporters, as was the case for Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009.

Logically, Kylian Mbappé is the first player from the French team to change clubs this summer, at the same time as Olivier Giroud, who is leaving AC Milan and joining the Los Angeles Galaxy. At the end of his contract with Juventus, Adrien Rabiot is now free and can sign with any team. Other players could go and see if the grass is greener elsewhere. This is notably the case for Youssouf Fofana, who AS Monaco wants to sell before his contract ends, and Jonathan Clauss, who is coming off a difficult season at Olympique de Marseille.
