A couple of days after Real Madrid won their 15th European Cup, they announced the blockbuster signing of Kylian Mbappe.

The 25-year-old French superstar has agreed to sign a five-year deal and will arrive on a free transfer after his contract with PSG expires on June 30.

However, given that his contract in Paris is still in force and he is away on international duty with France, no official presentation was carried out.

Date now set

Now, journalist Rodra P reports that Real Madrid have set a date for the official presentation of Kylian Mbappe as their new signing.

Indeed, the plan is now for Mbappe’s presentation to take place next month, on July 16, at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Indeed, both Real Madrid and the player’s entourage have agreed that Mbappe will be presented on 16 July at the Bernabeu, just after the European Championship.

The signing of Mbappe is already considered one of the most high-profile ones in the history of football, after seven years of ‘soap opera’ between Real Madrid, PSG and the player himself.

As such, the event for his presentation, scheduled for Tuesday 16 July, is expected to surpass Cristiano Ronaldo’s presentation with the club.

The Portuguese’s 2009 presentation drew 85,000 people to the Santiago Bernabeu, breaking the attendance record set by Maradona’s presentation with Napoli in 1984, with 80,000 fans at the San Paolo.

The club is already counting the days to see him win titles in a Real Madrid shirt, and the dressing room is delighted to welcome him.

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.
