Kylian Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid broke the internet, literally

After a transfer saga spanning several years, countless rumours, and numerous setbacks, Kylian Mbappe has officially joined Real Madrid.

The French superstar has signed a five-year contract with the Spanish giants, which will keep him at the Santiago Bernabeu through the summer of 2029. Mbappe will don the famous number 10, previously held by Luka Modric who will leave Los Blancos this summer.

The long-anticipated move brings a sense of closure to one of the most protracted transfer stories in recent football history, one that involved an unhappy Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and an endless stream of media speculation.

All seven of these players are aged 25 or under, positioning Real Madrid to embark on a potential era of European dominance.

Real Madrid’s recent history has been nothing short of spectacular, having won six of the last eleven Champions League titles. The combination of Mbappe’s explosive pace and goal-scoring prowess with the creative and technical skills of his new teammates promises to be a nightmare for opponents across Europe.
