The Spanish journalist, Ramon Alvarez de Vil announced this morning that Kylian Mbappe will take over Luka Modric’s number. However, the AS daily Newspaper has a different opinion.

Mbappe may play for Real Madrid with an unexpected number

Kylian Mbappe has officially announced that he will leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of this season. The world media unanimously predicts the Frenchman’s transfer to Real Madrid.

The situation surrounding the French star has been causing great emotions for a very long time. Now fans and journalists are wondering what jersey number Mbappe will be wearing at Real Madrid.

Earlier Daily Stand Nigeria reported that the striker would take over number “10” after Luka Modric. This news was reported by Ramon Alvarez de Vil, who said that the Croatian would soon part with the Royals.

This is, of course, a very real scenario, because the midfielder will turn 39 this year and it is not known whether he will be able to compete at the highest level in the coming months.

Slightly different information is provided by AS, which does not rule out Modric remaining in Real Madrid. In this case, Kylian Mbappe will not be able to count on the desired number 10.

He probably won’t wear Vinicius’s number seven either. What could this mean? Well, AS suggests that the Frenchman will take over the number “9”, which has been free since Karim Benzema’s departure.

It is worth recalling that this is how Cristiano Ronaldo started playing for Real Madrid. During his first season at the Santiago Bernabeu, the Portuguese played with an unusual number.
