Mbappé presentation shortly after the European Championship final

After the European Championship is already before the club season. Things could get particularly hectic for Kylian Mbappé, who is yet to be unveiled at Real Madrid

If Kylian Mbappé is to become European champion for the first time, a few stressful days await the new Real Madrid signing in mid-July. It’s now clear when the Whites will unveil their transfer target, their free agent “Galactico”, in style.

According to the well-informed Madrid daily Marca, the presentation at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu is scheduled for July 16, two days after the European Championship final. And regardless of whether the French team around captain Mbappé make it there

So it could be that the 25-year-old plays the final on Sunday, celebrates the title in Paris on Monday before traveling on to Madrid on Tuesday morning – and takes part in the next ceremony hours later. If the 2018 world champions do not win the European Championship in Germany, Mbappé will arrive in the Spanish capital on Monday, the day before his presentation.

The procedure itself is no different to other new arrivals – with the difference that the 15-time Champions League winner is expecting a sold-out Bernabeu. It could be a performance like when Mbappé’s idol Cristiano Ronaldo was introduced in the summer of 2009 – 15 years ago now.

First competitive match probably in Warsaw

On July 16, Mbappé’s jersey will also go on sale, which, according to Marca, will be adorned with the shirt number 9 – just like Cristiano Ronaldo’s in his first Real season. The 7 that Mbappé wore in Paris is occupied by Vinicius Junior; the 10 that the Frenchman has in the national team belongs to Luka Modric. The Croatian is about to extend his contract by another year.

Mbappé’s participation in Real’s preparation tour of the USA from the end of July to the beginning of August will certainly have an impact on France’s European Championship performance. Players who reach the semi-finals of the European Championship or Copa America will not take part. In both cases, Mbappé’s first competitive match for his new club is likely to be the UEFA Super Cup against Europa League winners Atalanta Bergamo in Warsaw on August 14.
