Real Madrid are set to sign one of the best forwards in the world next summer and hand him the number 10 shirt.
According to media outlet El Chiringuito via 90min, Real Madrid will sign Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe next summer and hand him the number 10 shirt.
Mbappe’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires at the end of the season and the France captain is reportedly unwilling to sign a new one, opening the door to a long-awaited move to Real Madrid on a free transfer.
Luka Modric currently wears the number 10 shirt at Real Madrid but the Croatian midfielder is expected to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season when his contract expires.
Mbappe’s currently wears the number 7 shirt at PSG, but this is occupied at Real Madrid by Vinicius Junior, who recently signed a long-term contract extension. For the France national team, 10 is Mbappe’s number of choice.
Former stars to have worn the number 10 for Real Madrid include James Rodriguez, Mesut Ozil, Wesley Sneijder, Luis Figo, Michael Laudrup and Ferenc Puskas.
