Real Madrid are gearing up for a monumental event to welcome Kylian Mbappe to their squad, with plans for his presentation promising to be nothing short of spectacular. 

According to reports from Cope, the unveiling could be even more remarkable with the potential appearance of surprise Real Madrid celebrities during the show.

Real Madrid have officially announced that the French superstar will be presented on Tuesday, July 16, at the iconic Santiago Bernabeu and to celebrate this momentous occasion, the club is pulling out all the stops to ensure an unforgettable event.

Details of Mbappe’s presentation

Before dwelling into the details, it must be noted that this will be the first player presentation for Real Madrid since the renovation of the Santiago Bernabeu, making it an even more significant event.

As reported before, a special walkway will be installed from the changing room exit to the stage set up at the North end of the stadium. 

As Mbappe makes his way along this catwalk, fire effects will light up the sides, creating a dramatic entrance. The public address system, accompanied by live musicians, will provide a rousing soundtrack to mark his arrival.

The presentation will take place in front of 80,000 enthusiastic fans packing the Bernabeu stands. Mbappe will step onto the field wearing the official Real Madrid kit for the 2024-25 season, proudly displaying the No. 9 on his back. 

A brief itinerary for Mbappe’s big day

For the big day, the stadium roof will be closed, and video scoreboards will enhance the spectacle. In place of the usual grass, a stage will be set up on the pitch for the event. 

The day will begin with Mbappe undergoing a medical examination, after which Real Madrid president Florentino Perez will officially welcome him at the club. 

Here, the formal ceremony of signing the contract, which binds Mbappe to Real Madrid for the next five seasons, will take place.

Following the contract signing, Mbappe will head to the Bernabeu, where he will take the stage. Alongside Perez, there might be surprise appearances from other Real Madrid personalities, adding an extra layer of excitement to the event.

For this special occasion, seats will be arranged around the stage for guests, family members, VIPs, and members of the media. 

Fans eager to witness the unveiling of Real Madrid’s newest star will have the opportunity to attend, with priority given to club members and season ticket holders.

Ancelotti’s Pre-Season Conundrum: How will Mbappe fit in at Real Madrid?

As the countdown to Real Madrid’s pre-season ticks away, manager Carlo Ancelotti is grappling with a significant challenge as most of his key players have yet to return, presenting a puzzle that needs solving urgently. 

It must be noted that last summer while preparing for the 2023/24 season, Ancelotti and staff crafted a new formation to make the most of their attacking talents. 

They knew they would rely heavily on Jude Bellingham, Vinicius Jr, and Rodrygo, so they designed a 4-4-2 diamond formation that placed Bellingham in a crucial midfield role. 

This strategy, honed during the pre-season and refined throughout the campaign, allowed other players to adapt to a well-defined playing style.

There are new challenges now

However, with the pre-season just two days away, Ancelotti finds himself needing to rework his plans. 

The absence of Kroos and the inclusion of Kylian Mbappe present new hurdles and Ancelotti needs to adjust his tactics to ensure the team functions seamlessly. O

According to Mundo Deportivo, one possibility being considered is repositioning Bellingham to a deeper role, where he can orchestrate play alongside Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, or Aurelien Tchouameni.

The challenge here lies in maintaining clarity and control of the ball, a trait Kroos excelled at, which will be difficult to replicate without a similar player. 

Dani Ceballos could step in, but he doesn’t command the same status as Kroos or the other key players and is also expected to leave.

What about the forwards?

The forward positions also need reevaluation. Vinicius and Rodrygo, although used as forwards last season, are not natural strikers. The same goes for Mbappe, who prefers playing on the left, clashing with Vinicius’ preferred position. 

This creates a conundrum for Ancelotti: how to accommodate the attacking prowess of his players while maintaining defensive solidity.

Ancelotti’s task is to find a balance that utilizes his players’ strengths without compromising the team’s structure. The upcoming pre-season matches against Milan, Barcelona, and Chelsea will be crucial. 

These games will offer valuable insights into how Real Madrid should approach the 2024/25 season. The pressure is immense, as always, and there’s no room for doubt. 

Ancelotti’s decisions will be under scrutiny from the first official match of the season, the European Super Cup against Atalanta, where success is expected.
