  • Cristiano Ronaldo wore shirt briefly

WHAT HAPPENED?

Real have confirmed that Real will wear the No.9 shirt at the Santiago Bernabeu. Cristiano Ronaldo wore the shirt too, upon his arrival at the club, before eventually switching to his iconic No.7. Mbappe opted against requesting his favoured No.10, which he wears for France, out of respect for Luka Modric.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

Mbappe moves to Real after an underwhelming Euro 2024. The World Cup winner only scored once - in a 1-1 draw with already-eliminated Poland - as Les Bleus reached the semi-final, where they were beaten by Spain. However, he will have to perform if he is to live up to the lineage of the No.9 shirt, which has previously been worn by both the Portuguese and Brazilian Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Emilio Butragueno, and Alfredo Di Stefano.

DID YOU KNOW?

Mbappe leaves PSG with an astonishing record of 256 goals and 108 assists in 308 games. The 25-year-old has also scored 48 goals in 84 caps for France.

WHAT NEXT?

Real are heading on a pre-season tour of the United States, where they will play AC Milan, Barcelona and Chelsea, before the UEFA Super Cup final against Atalanta.
