Real Madrid to formally Present Mbappe Next Week

The Spanish powerhouses Real Madrid confirmed that Kylian Mbappe would make his official Real Madrid player presentation at the Santiago-Bernabeu stadium on Tuesday.

Less than a day had passed since Spain eliminated France and the former Paris Saint-Germain player from the Euro 2024 tournament in the semifinals.

Mbappe, who will wear the number 9 shirt, will be presented at the Bernabeu at midday (1000 GMT) on Tuesday and will be welcomed by Real president Florentino Perez for the signing of his five-year contract, the club announced on Wednesday.

France’s captain had a disappointing Euro 2024 and was hampered by breaking his nose in his country’s opening match against Austria and missed a late chance to equalise in the 2-1 defeat to Spain on Tuesday.

Mbappe is due to have his first competitive game for the Spanish and European champions when they open their La Liga defence against Real Mallorca on the weekend of August 17/18, with his first taste of the Bernabeu coming a week later when Madrid host promoted Real Valladolid.

Mbappe joins Real as a free agent on a reported annual salary of 15 million euros ($16.2 million), with bonuses attached to his arrival in the Spanish capital of over 100 million euros.
