Real Madrid superstar will remain ‘untouchable’ in the team even if Mbappe joins

Over the past couple of seasons, Vinicius Jr has established himself as one of the most important players for Real Madrid.

The 23-year-old speedster has been crucial to the success that Los Merengues have enjoyed in Carlo Ancelotti’s second tenure as the manager. Now, with Karim Benzema departing, there will be greater responsibility on his young shoulders, which he is ready to take up.

There will also be a bigger spotlight on the former Flamengo wonderkid and it goes without saying that everything he does will be subjected to greater scrutiny.

At the same time, Real Madrid are pursuing Kylian Mbappe this summer to fill the void left by Benzema’s sudden departure.

The 24-year-old French superstar wants to join the Spanish capital club, but is unwilling to leave PSG this summer as it would mean him sacrificing a big bonus payment. As such, he is inclining towards a free transfer exit next year, when his contract expires.

Despite that, though, AS is reporting that Real Madrid believe that Mbappe will end up arriving at the club before the transfer window closes.

The report goes on to add that even if Mbappe joins the Merengues, Vinicius will remain an ‘untouchable’ in the team and his place on the left flank will not be given to the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner.

It is no secret that Mbappe prefers playing on the left wing, but that position is occupied and owned by Vinicius at the moment. And that is something that will not change to accommodate the PSG superstar if he does indeed make the jump to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid staff is convinced that Mbappe will continue to be great playing as a centre-forward and succeeding in the position, thanks to goalscoring capabilities and blistering pace.

Even then, they will speak to the Frenchman and inform him that Vinicius has made the left-wing spot his own through his performances and quality.

What bodes well for Real Madrid, as per the report, is that Mbappe shares a good personal equation with Vinicius as well as Rodrygo Goes and Carlo Ancelotti will have a fearsome attacking unit at his disposal if the club are able to land the PSG superstar.

What is the price tag on Kylian Mbappe’s Real Madrid jersey?




Kylian Mbappe’s arrival at Real Madrid has sparked a frenzy among football fans, with the club swiftly making his iconic jersey available for purchase starting July 11. 

Notably, before July 11, eager fans could not get their hands on a jersey featuring Mbappe’s name and number 9, as he was under contract with PSG until June 30. 

However, once the clock struck July 11, enthusiasts could finally purchase his jerseys in various styles, prompting a rapid sell-out at the Adidas store within hours.

The pricing of these jerseys has garnered significant attention, varying not only by size but also by the type of jersey—Replica or Authentic—that fans choose, reports Diario AS.

Initially, the Real Madrid online store listed the Replica version of Mbappe’s jersey at €100, while the Authentic version, identical to those worn by the team’s players, was priced at €160.

The highest-priced option is the Authentic Mbappe Men’s Home Kit Shirt, retailing at €185. This premium version allows fans to add additional patches such as La Liga or Champions League badges for an extra charge. 

Surprisingly, the women’s version of the jersey is priced equivalently, reflecting gender-neutral pricing practices, while the children’s edition is slightly more affordable at €130. 

Furthermore, even the youngest fans can join in the excitement with a baby version of the jersey priced at €80.

Meanwhile, for those looking for a more budget-friendly option, the Mbappe Men’s Home Shirt comes in at €120. 

Fans can customize these shirts with either a La Liga or Champions League patch for an additional €15, affixed uniquely on the right sleeve, opposite the iconic HP logo on the left, a prominent sponsor of the club. 

These prices apply to the short-sleeved versions; opting for long sleeves incurs a slightly lower cost.
