All eyes will be on the Santiago Bernabeu in four weeks, as a date has been set for Kylian Mbappe’s official presentation as a Real Madrid player.

The 25-year-old finally joined the Spanish giants as a free agent, effectively ending a seven-year transfer saga.

Despite moving to the Spanish capital on a free transfer, Mbappe will reportedly earn £ 250,000 a week on a five-year contract, along with a hefty £128 million signing fee.

On Monday, June 3, Mbappe left France for Spain to officially announce his switch, but the deal will go through once his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires on June 30.

Plans are already underway for Real Madrid to officially present the 2018 World Cup winner as their new player, and according to renowned journalist @rodra, Los Blancos plan to unveil their new superstar on Tuesday, July 16.

Thus, Mbappe’s official presentation at Real Madrid’s home ground is set to take place just two days after the Euro 2024 final.

Other key dates in Kylian Mbappe's deal

As mentioned earlier, Mbappe will officially become a Real Madrid player on July 1.

After his presentation in mid-July, the Frenchman could make his El Clasico debut on August 3, when Real Madrid and Barcelona clash at the MetLife Stadium, New Jersey, for the annual pre-season exhibition match.

If he maintains his fitness, Mbappe could make his competitive debut in the European Super Cup, which will be played on Wednesday, August 14, between Champions League winners Real Madrid and Atalanta, who won the Europa League.

Finally, the Frenchman could make his home debut in front of tens of thousands of home fans either on Saturday, August 17 or Sunday, August 18, according to Forbes.

La Liga has yet to release the fixture list for the 2024/2025 season, but with the Super Cup set to take place on Wednesday, Real Madrid’s first league game will likely be on Sunday.

Los Blancos have not had a home game as their opening league fixture since before the COVID-19 pandemic due to work that was taking at their stadium, but things are likely to be different in 2023/2024.

Premier League players earning more than Mbappe

Sports Brief also reported on the 10 Premier League players earning higher wages than Kylian Mbappe at Real Madrid.

The Frenchman will earn a reported £12.8 million per season at Real Madrid, which is considerably lower than the £21.4 million annual salary he used to get in Paris.

Despite the pay cut, the Frenchman remains one of Los Blancos' top earners, above David Alaba (€12.5mil), Vinicius Junior (€12mil), Luka Modric (€11.5mil), and Jude Bellingham (€11mil).
