Kylian Mbappe is officially a Real Madrid player and exciting times lie ahead for the Real Madrid faithful.

Having just won the UEFA Champions League, Los Blancos have now added one of the best players in the world to their ranks as they continue to build a team that can dominate the next decade.

Mbappe will likely be Real Madrid’s poster boy from here on, and rightly so given how he has lit up the football world in recent years.

His move to the Spanish capital will go down in history as one of the club’s biggest ever transfers and the excitement is palpable.

Club legends welcome Mbappe

In a recent post via his Instagram account Kylian Mbappe openly penned his unfiltered thoughts on signing for Real Madrid and how it was a dream come true. As seen in the comments section, several club legends did not hold back in welcoming the player.

Real Madrid legend Cristiano Ronaldo sent out a big message to the new Galactico, showering high praise on him.

Another big name who commented on the post was none other than David Beckham, who labelled the times ‘exciting.’

Mbappe’s former teammate and Real Madrid legend Sergio Ramos also joined the party on social media. Notably, the former club captain personally guided the phenom over his move to Spain and even helped him with finding a new house.

The list of legends to share the excitement of Mbappe’s arrival does not end there, with Iker Casillas also joining the bandwagon with his comment on the post.

Last, but not the least, was club legend Marcelo who made his excitement very clear.

Teammates react

Kylian Mbappe will have several familiar faces in the dressing room once he arrives in Spain later this year, especially with his compatriots Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni at the club.

The duo, understandably excited over the arrival of their national teammate, both sent out dedicated posts welcoming Mbappe.

“Welcome Home bro,” wrote Tchouameni on a post via his X account.

Camavinga, meanwhile, let the photo do the talking for his welcome.

Meanwhile, Vinicius Jr. commented the following on Mbappe’s post announcing the transfer to Real Madrid.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
