Having opted against renewing his seven-year spell with Paris Saint-Germain, Kylian finally brought an end to one of the protracted transfer deals of the modern era by agreeing to a five-year deal to join the Spanish giants, per CNN.

Currently, away with France on international duty, Mbappe will only join Los Blancos after the 2024 Euros, which kick starts on June 14.

Ahead of the competition, the former AS Monaco prodigy's father has revealed what his football-obsessed son does away from the pitch.

Wilfred, who played semi-professional football, disclosed six things the new Madrid signing does, which highlight his craze for the sport.

“When he doesn’t play football, he watches football, he plays football games, he talks, sleeps, eats, breathes football," he said, as quoted by Madrid Zone.
