Real Madrid have outlined a perfect plan for the presentation of their upcoming star Kylian Mbappe. Interestingly enough, Spanish publication MARCA is reporting that the team from the Spanish capital has factored in all the possible events that could coincide with the presentation.

Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid in the summer is nothing but a matter of an official announcement as the parties involved have figured out all the necessary documentation.

Despite that, though, the announcement is expected to be delayed mostly because of the UEFA Champions League quarter-final draws, where Real Madrid could be drawn against PSG.

So what about the presentation?

Mbappe’s presentation as a Real Madrid player is expected to be a grand spectacle. For that Real Madrid are expecting to coincide his unveiling and the grand unveiling of the brand-new Santiago Bernabeu stadium, adding an extra layer of excitement to the impending festivities.

At Real Madrid, they are busy planning two scenarios. It all depends on whether the footballer’s current team (PSG) or his next club (Real Madrid) will make it to the Champions League final on June 1 at Wembley.

If they do not, it is likely that the presentation will be done during that time. If either Madrid or PSG gets to the Champions League final, the presentation will happen between June 3 and June 6. 

This timing is crucial because the French team is gearing up for the Euro Cup, which kicks off on June 17 against Austria.

In simpler terms, there is a big event coming up – the unveiling of a star footballer at Real Madrid, along with the brand-new Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

The exact date depends on the Champions League final and some concerts, and the Los Blancos are aiming to do it before the French team heads to the Euro Cup.

Barcelona find legal precedent to replay El Clasico after ‘ghost goal’ controversy

Barcelona’s recent defeat to Real Madrid in El Clasico appears to have caused calamity inside the Catalan camp.

The defeat has effectively ruled Barça out of the title race while further diminishing the chances of Xavi staying at Camp Nou.

Amid all this, Barcelona president Joan Laporta appears to be having a hard swallowing the result and has gone on a rampage against the use of VAR, which notably annulled a goal from Lamine Yamal after it was cleared from behind the line by Andriy Lunin.

A day after the result, Laporta even warned that Barcelona might seek legal measures to try and replay El Clasico if they find any evidence of wrongdoings. And that statement could now soon turn into reality.

Barcelona consider legal measures

According to Cadena SER, Barcelona are considering legal action under the guidance of none other than Laporta to force a replay.

Their inspiration? An incident earlier this year in the Belgian League, where a VAR error led to the permission for a replay of an Anderlecht vs Genk match, although the decision was later annulled by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

CAS is the apex body for all things related to sports. And although the entity was involved in annulling the replay between Genk and Anderlecht, Barcelona are hopeful they would intervene in this matter.

The Catalans are aware that local bodies such as RFEF and CTA might not cooperate with Barcelona, knowing the image and prestige of Spanish football could be at stake.

As such, Barça are hopeful of intervention from CAS. They want the apex court to look into the matter and stage a replay of the Clasico.

Barca’s threats of legal action, including potentially involving the CAS, seem like a desperate attempt to try and remain in the title race – the only avenue for silverware left for the Catalans this season.
