When will Real Madrid announce the signing of Mbappe? What is his shirt number?

Everyone around the world is waiting for when Real Madrid will officially announce the inclusion of Kylian Mbappe, after the player’s speech to the fans of Paris Saint-Germain, during which he announced the end of his career at the Parc des Princes Stadium.

Since last February, the Royal Club has had an agreement with Mbappe, but the delay in announcing this came due to the possibility of Real Madrid facing Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Now that PSG has left the most important continental competition, and Mbappe has announced his departure, everything seems ready for the 25-year-old to announce the fulfillment of his dream and wear the Madrid shirt.

In this regard, another question arises, which is the shirt number that Mbappe will wear with Real Madrid, and whether he will follow the path of legends or will he be forced to wear a number that he is not accustomed to in his career.

When will Real Madrid announce the signing of Mbappe?

According to the newspaper “Marca”, Real Madrid has set a date between 3 and 9 next June to officially announce the contract with Kylian Mbappe.

The reason for delaying the announcement is the desire of Florentino Perez and the Spanish club management not to distract the players and fans from the Champions League final.

Real Madrid will play Borussia Dortmund on June 1 at Wembley Stadium, and after the end of the match and the celebration of the title, if achieved, the inclusion of Mbappe will be announced.

As for presenting the player to the fans, the date remains ambiguous, as Real Madrid wants to present him before Euro 2024, but this requires the approval of the French Federation, which seems difficult to achieve.

Thus, it is expected that Mbappe will be presented at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium after the end of Euro 2024, specifically in the last weeks of July or the beginning of August.

What is Mbappe’s shirt number with Real Madrid?

Many reports have emerged in recent hours confirming Luka Modric’s departure from Real Madrid, and thus Mbappe will receive the No. 10 shirt worn by many Merengue legends.

But if Modric changes his decision to leave the Spanish capital, Mbappe will get the number 9 shirt, which is the shirt that legends such as Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo carried in his first seasons at Real Madrid.

Mbappe wears number 7 with Paris, and it is said that it is his favorite number, but obtaining it at Real Madrid seems impossible in light of another star, Vinicius Junior, wearing the number of the Royal Club legends.

Mbappe prefers the No. 10 shirt, which he has always worn with the French national team since the 2018 World Cup. He also does not mind wearing the No. 9 shirt if necessary, which is a number he wore once during his career when he was in Monaco.
