Mbappe Snubs Real Madrid’s Iconic No.10 Jersey – What’s Behind The Decision?

Why Kylian Mbappe Won’t Wear the No.10 Shirt for Real Madrid Next Season

The transfer window has finally closed, and Kylian Mbappe has made his highly-anticipated move to Real Madrid from Paris Saint-Germain. While the French superstar has settled into his new surroundings, there’s one thing that’s caught the attention of fans – his jersey number.

No.10 Shirt Up for Grabs

In a shocking twist, Mbappe won’t be wearing the iconic No.10 shirt for Real Madrid next season. The jersey, once donned by the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Luka Modrić, has been occupied by Modrić for several years. According to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, Mbappe has shown respect for the Croatian midfielder and will instead wear the No.9 shirt.

Mbappe’s New Number

It’s a big change for the 24-year-old, who’s worn the No.10 jersey for both PSG and the French national team. However, Mbappe has stated that he has no issues with not wearing the coveted number, citing his admiration for Modrić’s achievements.

What’s Next for Mbappe?

Mbappe is currently away on international duty, but his French side’s Euro 2024 dreams were shattered by Spain on Tuesday night. The defeat marked a disappointing end to France’s campaign, with Mbappe describing the loss as a "failure".

A New Chapter Ahead

Despite the setback, Mbappe is already looking ahead to his new life at Real Madrid. In an interview, he expressed his desire to "get some rest" and "come back strongly" for the upcoming season.
