Kylian Mbappé chooses his jersey number for Real Madrid

Kylian Mbappé is finally set to join Real Madrid this summer, fulfilling a childhood dream for the 25-year-old Frenchman. One of the biggest questions surrounding his move has been what jersey number he will wear.

Mbappé’s preferred number 7 is currently owned by Vinicius Jr., and it is unlikely that the Brazilian will be willing to give it up. The number 10 is also an option, as Luka Modric is leaving the club at the end of the season.

However, according to AS, Mbappé has chosen a different number: the number 9. This was previously worn by Karim Benzema, who left Real Madrid last summer.

The Spanish outlet also reports that Mbappé wants to be presented to the Santiago Bernabéu crowd before the 2024 European Championship, which he will play in with France.
