Real Madrid: what position will Mbappé play? The answer is known

It’s hard to miss this Tuesday morning when starting the foreign press review. With a thumbs up, Kylian Mbappé sits on the front page of the Spanish daily AS, with an evocative title: “Mbappé acepta ser el 9” (Mbappé agreed to be number 9) of Real Madrid. Announced in the city of Madrid next season, the captain of the Blues and the star of PSG would therefore be fixed on its use in his new club.

The question has been nagging since the -unofficial- announcement of his departure. What position will Kylian Mbappé play at Real Madrid? According to our colleagues, the 25-year-old Frenchman would have discussed this subject with Carlo Ancelotti, who has no shortage of offensive weapons in his current squad (Vinicius, Rodrygo, Jude Bellingham or Brahim Diaz). On the other hand, none of these elements end the seasons around 40 goals each year... like Mbappé does.

“Kylian knows that by being in Madrid, it will be much easier for him to win the Champions League and the Ballon d'Or,” whispers a close friend of the player to the Spanish daily. And if he also wins the Golden Shoe, good for him. Playing nine for Real Madrid you can be excited about scoring goals.” Accustomed to playing on the left side of the attack, the Parisian has played more often this season in a more central position since the arrival of Luis Enrique.

If the debate on whether he is better on one side or in the center remains alive, his statistics (42 matches, 41 goals, excluding the French team) confirm his ability to score whatever his position. A situation which also recalls that of Thierry Henry, used to playing on the side and who has refocused on the axis. Although he has not yet announced anything about his future, Kylian Mbappé is awaiting the end of the Champions League, with PSG-Dortmund and Real Madrid-Bayern Munich in the semi-final. The prospect of a reunion with his future club in the final on June 1 at Wembley would further postpone the formalization of his departure.
