BREAKING: Kylian #Mbappe New Shirt Number At Real Madrid Revealed—-Real Madrid is reportedly preparing for Kylian Mbappe‘s potential arrival next summer as his contract with Paris Saint-Germain nears its end.
Although no official announcements have been made, reports across Europe suggest that the Spanish giants are gearing up for his transfer.
According to Spanish outlet El Chiringuito, Real Madrid has already chosen the shirt number for Kylian Mbappe, and it is believed to be the coveted number 10.
This number is currently worn by club legend Luka Modric, whose contract extends until 2024. Modric has expressed frustration over his limited playing time this season and has been linked with a move to Inter Miami, which is led by Lionel Messi. If El Chiringuito’s report is accurate, it signals the possible end of Modric’s tenure at Real Madrid.
Kylian Mbappe Club Numbers
In his current club, PSG, Kylian Mbappe dons the number 7 jersey. However, at Real Madrid, this number is occupied by Vinicius Junior, who recently extended his contract. For the France national team, Mbappe prefers the number 10.
Earlier in his career, Kylian Mbappe wore the number 29 during his breakthrough at Monaco and upon joining PSG. However, La Liga regulations prevent senior players from wearing numbers higher than 25.
Real Madrid has a history of prestigious players who have worn the number 10 jersey, including James Rodriguez, Mesut Ozil, Wesley Sneijder, Luis Figo, Michael Laudrup, and Ferenc Puskas. The choice of the number 10 for Kylian Mbappe signals the club’s high expectations for the young French talent as they prepare for a potential summer transfer.
