Kylian Mbappé set to blast the new breed of Galacticos into a new galaxy

Vinicius Junior, Jude Bellingham, Rodrygo, and Kylian Mbappé. That is a frontline that many opponents will likely be facing next season once Mbappé completes his much-anticipated transfer to Real Madrid this summer. And it is a line-up that will strike immense fear into anyone trying to defend against the star-studded quartet. With more silverware already added to the cabinet by the latest wave of Galacticos, Mbappé’s signing will only increase the likelihood of Real Madrid winning more honours.

Mbappé down the middle?

Not only is Mbappé one of the world’s greatest strikers, showcased most recently on the global stage during the 2022 World Cup final, when the Frenchman scored a hat-trick, albeit in vain, as Argentina triumphed on penalties in one of the greatest finals of the modern era. For Carlo Ancelotti, who extended his contract at Real Madrid until 2026, Mbappé’s versatility will give the Italian even more variation in attack.

During his time at Paris Saint-Germain, Mbappé has played across the whole front line and his versatility could give Real Madrid even more firepower. The prospect of Vinicius Junior coming in from one wing, Jude Bellingham making runs down the middle and Kylian Mbappé making movements from the other flank is indeed a mouth-watering one.

The ultimate Galactico

The term Galacticos has been characterised by big money signings and although Mbappé will arrive on a free transfer, the significance of the transfer is not lost on anyone. His impending transfer is already being heralded by many as being the ultimate Galactico signing. In what is now the third Galactico era, Mbappé’s signing is set to land the greatest impact, such is the ability of the 25-year-old. Zinedine Zidane is thought of as the greatest Galactico to wear the Real Madrid shirt, but Mbappé certainly has the ability to eclipse the great Zizou.

In becoming the ultimate Galactico, Mbappé can not only propel Real Madrid to further success, but he can also realise his own ambitions of winning the Champions League, something he failed to do with Paris Saint-Germain. By enhancing his own personal honours, Mbappé would surely also give his chances of winning the much-coveted Ballon d’Or award a big shot in the arm.

First, France!

With defeat over two legs against Borussia Dortmund ending Mbappé’s latest attempt to lift the Champions League trophy, his attention turns solely onto the upcoming European Championships, where he will hope to go one better than that disappointing World Cup final defeat and lift the Henri Delaunay Cup. Cloudbet odds for Euro 2024 have France right amongst the favourites and Mbappé could well be the player that propels France to success. A triumph in Germany this summer will only give future performances in Madrid even more momentum.
