According to journalist Jorge Picon (h/t Madrid Zone), Kylian Mbappe has already developed a friendly relationship with Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo. 

The reporter mentions that they have met during vacations and events, and Mbappe is in regular contact with several Real Madrid players about his potential move to the club.

Mbappe is clearly preparing for his new life in Madrid as only last week, he announced that he would be leaving Paris Saint-Germain to take the final step for Real Madrid to make an official announcement about his transfer. 

This announcement is planned to be made after the Champions League final on June 1. Right now, everyone at Real Madrid is focused on the upcoming match at Wembley. They do not want the excitement around Mbappe’s move to disrupt their current achievements.

No date for presentation, yet!

The exact date for Mbappe’s official presentation at Real Madrid has not been decided yet. However, it could happen before the Euro Cup, depending on PSG’s approval since Mbappe is under contract until June 30. 

It is suggested that PSG are eager to move on from the media frenzy and their star player’s decision to leave.

Therefore, it’s possible that Mbappe could be officially presented in Madrid between June 3 and 7, before he heads to the Euro Cup with the French national team. If this is not feasible, the presentation might be delayed until July.

Mbappe already has a house in Madrid

Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid is practically certain. He has already informed some of his future teammates about his arrival, asking them questions about the city and the club. 

His good friendships with players like Vinicius and Rodrygo, whom he has met during various events and vacations, will help him settle in smoothly. 

On the other hand, the Real Madrid locker room is eagerly awaiting his arrival, which will be celebrated after the Champions League final.

Rumours have it that Mbappe already has a residence in Madrid and he plans to live in the luxurious area of La Moraleja, close to the sports city. 

Now, this will be a temporary arrangement while he gets familiar with the city and finds the perfect place to settle down, as this location will allow him to be near his other teammates.

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.
