Real Madrid will not fulfill requests to print the names of Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland on jerseys from the club’s official store, according to a report from SER Deportivos.
Fans who purchase Real Madrid jerseys can have the names and numbers of current players printed on the back and can make custom requests, but SER Deportivos reports that anyone asking for “Mbappé” or “Haaland” to be printed on jerseys will be turned away. The radio station verified the claim with two fans who requested that the names of the Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City stars be placed on a jersey. Staff responded that they could not fulfill the request because the two players are not Real players and that image rights issues prevent them from adding the names of players from other clubs.
Real Madrid fans are eager to have Mbappé and Haaland on their jerseys, as the Spanish giants have dreamed of signing one of the two superstar strikers in recent transfer windows. Haaland is thriving at City, the reigning world, European, and English champions are not close to selling him, but Mbappé could leave PSG for free at the end of the season.
It was reported this month that Madrid is prepared to make a final offer to sign the French international in January, but he will only have until the 15th of the month to accept the deal. If not, the Santiago Bernabéu will pursue the Norwegian hero.
