Back on June 3, Real Madrid officially announced that they had agreed a long-term contract with superstar forward Kylian Mbappe.

However, while the deal was official, the French attacker was still in contract with PSG until June 30.

Now, though, with his deal with the French champions expiring officially last night, Mbappe is, in all the sense, a Real Madrid footballer, having signed on a free transfer.

In fact, with his contract expiring at PSG, Real Madrid have updated their official squad list on the club’s website, with Mbappe being included in the ‘forwards’ section, although it has since been deleted.

But, with Mbappe’s contract at PSG being done and dusted, Le Parisien now reports that Real Madrid can start selling Kylian Mbappe shirts at the club.

While it is yet to be officially confirmed, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner is expected to take the No. 9 shirt, left vacant since last year following the departure of his compatriot, Karim Benzema.

There is likely to be a huge demand for shirts with Mbappe’s name printed on them moving forward and fans can now get their hands on them.

Presentation on July 16

Mbappe may now be a Real Madrid player completely but his official presentation is yet to take place. After all, the world-class attacker is currently away at the UEFA Euro 2024 in Germany, where he is representing France.

As such, it has been reported that Real Madrid have scheduled his presentation for July 16, a couple of days after the Euro 2024 final.

The plan is to make that event into a grand one, with the new Santiago Bernabeu expected to be overflowing with supporters to see their latest Galactico signing.

Just in: Real Madrid’s defensive target picks up fresh injury

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

Mario Gila picks up fresh injury

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
