Kylian Mbappe is the man of the moment as his much fated blockbuster galactico move from PSG to Real Madrid was officially announced on Monday this week. Ever since Real Madrid's traditional ‘Communicado Official’ arrived there has been much fanfare about the French Superstar.  

Kylian Mbappe is also going to be the captain of France in the upcoming UEFA Euros 2024 which starts from 14th June in Germany. Ahead of the Euros, world cup winner with France and Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane sent his wishes to the French National team and made a bold claim about Real Madrid signing the French National Team captain.

Kylian Mbappe is about to walk in the footsteps of his idles in Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo as the 25-year old superstar looks to create his own legend at the Santiago Bernabeu. 


However, Zinedine Zidane believes that Kylian Mbappe doesn't need to worry about his predecessors as he makes a big claim that the newest Madrid recruit will surpass all the legends that have come before him at Real Madrid. 

“Kylian is here now. He will make history and I think he'll surpass everyone,” said Zinedine Zidane on Mbappe joining Real Madrid.

Zinedine Zidane has always been a huge admirer of Kylian Mbappe and tried to sign him for Real Madrid back in 2012. 


However if recent reports are to be believed then Zizou was ready to sell Gareth Bale in the summer of 2017 in order to sign Mbappe who was a young starlet at AS Monaco at the time. 

There is a lot of anticipation regarding Kylian Mbappe's debut with Real Madrid. Before joining Los Merengues, the Frenchman will take part in the Euros. Once his Euros duties are fulfilled he will be presented as the latest Galactico at the Santiago Bernabeu in a grand ceremony. He is expected to play his first game for Real Madrid against AC Milan in the pre season friendly and is expected to make his official debut in the UEFA Supercup against Atalanta in August.
