Real Madrid set presentation week for Kylian Mbappe’s Bernabeu presentation

Having said his goodbyes to the Paris faithful, Kylian Mbappe is prepared to make the move to Madrid this June pending official confirmation.

The World Cup winner will join Carlo Ancelotti’s project which already boasts the likes of Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Jude Bellingham amongst others.

While Mbappe’s move at this point is practically taken for granted, its official announcement is highly anticipated and Jose Felix Diaz (h/t Madrid Xtra) provides an update on the same.

Before the EUROS

As revealed by the Spanish journalist, members in the Real Madrid offices are already looking for dates to present Kylian Mbappe at the Nuevo Santiago Bernabeu as the latest Galactico.

The period that appeals to the administration as it stands is between the third and ninth of June, and a final decision has not been made yet. It will depend on Paris Saint-Germain’s permission as well, after all, as Mbappe’s contract in France runs until 30th June.

The reliable journalist also adds that he feels Mbappe will be presented at the Bernabeu before the start of the European Championships in Germany on 14th June.

Change in plan

Last month, it was relayed that Real Madrid planned to present Mbappe as a new player alongside the highly-anticipated Taylor Swift concert scheduled for May 30th.

The Merengues’ progression to the UEFA Champions League final, however, changes everything as the club do not wish for any distraction until the biggest game of the season is done with.

All signs thus point to a presentation in the first or second week of June as a standalone event, as it is now virtually impossible to couple it with the American singer-songwriter’s mega-event.

Real Madrid will be on their way to England this Thursday as they gear up to take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The players and the staff will be on a flight to London tomorrow to prepare for the clash at Wembley.

However, according to a report from journalist Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin might not travel with the rest of the team tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper has not trained for three days in a row after coming down with the flu.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
