Mbappe Set to Join Real Madrid: Unveiling at Santiago Bernabeu

Published:

France football star Kylian Mbappe will be officially unveiled as the newest member of Spanish football giants Real Madrid on July 16 at the club’s iconic Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

After years of speculation, Mbappe joined Real Madrid as a free agent earlier in June. The 25-year-old World Cup winner with France leaves French football giants Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) to join a Madrid team brimming with talent and still basking in the glory of their latest European triumph.

Real Madrid announced the unveiling event with a statement: “On Tuesday 16th July, at 12 pm, the presentation of our new player Kylian Mbappe will take place at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium. Real Madrid members will be able to attend the event for free, as well as Premium Madridistas and the general public, subject to ticket availability.”

Mbappe will don the iconic number nine jersey for the club.

“Real Madrid CF and Kylian Mbappe have reached an agreement under which he will become a Real Madrid player for the next five seasons,” the club stated officially earlier in June.

Mbappe, who joined PSG from AS Monaco in 2017, has played 290 matches and scored 243 goals for the Paris club. The French striker was just 19 years old when he left his childhood club for PSG.

In the recently concluded Ligue 1 season, the Frenchman appeared in 29 matches, scoring 27 goals and providing 7 assists.

Throughout his career, Mbappe has been vocal about his dream to play for the 14-time UEFA Champions League (UCL) winners Real Madrid. Over the years, Los Blancos have made several attempts to bring him to Madrid, but Mbappe waited until the end of his contract to make the move.

In 2021, Real Madrid offered 220 million Euros to sign Mbappe, but PSG turned it down.

In the ongoing UEFA Euro competition, Mbappe led France to the semifinals, where they lost 1-2 to Spain. During the tournament, Mbappe scored a goal and provided two assists.
