Speaking at a press conference while with the French national team, Real Madrid new signing Kylian Mbappe expressed his delight at finally getting his dream move.

Real Madrid announced Mbappe’s signing this Monday, with the 25-year-old superstar penning a five-year contract until the summer of 2029.

Following that, the forward issued a statement on social media about the move, but interacted with the media today, for the first time since the announcement, and said:

“Everyone knows the information, I am going to be a Real Madrid player for at least the next 5 seasons. I am very excited to come to this great club. I arrive there with a lot of humility. I thank everyone who helped me directly or indirectly.

“There are a lot of emotions but we have to go back to something more rational. I have responsibilities as captain of the France national team. I know it’s unfair, but I won’t answer any questions other than those related to the national team.”

Mbappe then went on to thank everyone involved, including Real Madrid president Florentino Perez for the faith he showed in him, saying:

“I want to thank all the people who have sent me messages, I have not been able to see them all. I want to thank everyone at Real Madrid and especially Florentino, who trusted me from the very first moment.”

Expressing his relief at the move finally being completed, he added: “It’s a big relief, I’m very happy, it’s easy to see it on my face. At the end of the season I played less, everyone knows why, but that won’t be an excuse during the European Championship.”

Mbappe also went on to claim that he sees Real Madrid legend Cristiano Ronaldo as his idol, while also thanking everyone who sent him well wishes and congratulatory messages.

The 25-year-old also shed light on how things got hard for him at PSG once he decided not to renew his contract, saying:

“PSG told me that they would not play in a violent way. Luis Enrique and Luis Campos saved me. That is the truth.”

France NT growing concerned about Real Madrid star’s fitness ahead of Euros

Real Madrid star Aurelien Tchouameni is currently with the French National Team in preparation for the upcoming European Championships.

Didier Deschamps and Co. were hoping that the defensive midfielder would make a complete recovery from the stress injury on his left foot in time for the Euros, but his situation does not appear as favourable any longer.

With the commencement of the competition approaching fast, the French setup are worried and must make a decision fast, as revealed by SPORT.

Long time out

Les Bleus are still living in the optimism that Tchouameni will make it back in time for the premier event. With every passing day, however, the Real Madrid star’s availability is looking more distant.

After all, the deep-lying midfielder last played over a month ago in Real Madrid’s UEFA Champions League semifinal against Bayern Munich. Since then, he missed four league games, the UCL final and two friendly games with the national team.

Should the Frenchman recover in time, there will be questions raised about his match-fitness and rightly so for 40 days is a very long hiatus in the world of football.

Urgent decision

The medical team of the French national setup have reportedly devised a specific plan to ensure that the youngster recovers at the earliest and is available for the event in Germany.

Deschamps, however, has a critical decision to make as he will not be allowed to make any changes to his squad after the tournament begins. His deadline, thus, is the 17th of June before his team’s clash against Austria.

The manager hopes to recover Tchouameni at all costs and will likely wait until the nth minute before taking a decision.

Should a replacement be required, a UEFA Medical Committee doctor will have to confirm that the injury is indeed as serious as the camp believe.
