The Real Madrid world has been completely rocked in the best possible way by the Kylian Mbappe transfer. The Frenchman, who is considered as one of the best players in the world, officially joined Real Madrid a while ago after his contract at Paris Saint-Germain expired.

That said, while Real Madrid fans were excited to see the official announcement, they have been eagerly anticipating the next step after the transfer. He is certainly a Real Madrid player and he will play a big role next season but how soon will he be integrated into the squad?

Well, this could all depend on when France return from EURO 2024 in Germany. Currently, they are set to play in the quarterfinal against Portugal, which means a future Real Madrid legend in Mbappe will face a former Real Madrid legend in Cristiano Ronaldo. In more ways than one, it will be a spectacle for Madrid fans.

Finally, though, Real Madrid have officially made the next big step after securing the Kylian Mbappe transfer. It took them a while, but Mbappe has officially been revealed as a squad player on the official club website. Both Endrick and Kylian Mbappe have been listed among the Real Madrid forwards, as the only two forwards without a squad number currently. Jesus Vallejo also has no squad number.

Squad numbers are taken very seriously, especially by Real Madrid. In the past, they have seen some incredibly iconic players don the best numbers. For example, Cristiano Ronaldo became synonymous with his alter-ego "CR7" due to his Real Madrid jersey for a long time.

It is anticipated that Kylian Mbappe will wear the number 9 jersey (Forbes), which makes the most sense as a likely centre forward. Now, Real Madrid fans will just await official confirmation on this but it's great to see Kylian Mbappe pictured in a Real Madrid jersey on the official squad list.


Which number do you think would suit Kylian Mbappe the most?
