Mbappe, 25, will be keen to hit the ground running in Spain after a frustrating Euro 2024.

The forward only managed one goal in the tournament as France was knocked out by the Spanish in the semi-finals.

He will now link up with his new side after his holidays ahead of the 2024/25 La Liga season.

Mbappe will have a new look, though, as he has been handed the number nine shirt.

He has never been given the shirt number before having worn the 11 and 29 jerseys at AS Monaco.

At PSG, he had multiple squad numbers such as the number seven, 17, 14 and 29.

For France, Mbappe has worn the number 10 shirt since 2017 having previously had the number 12 and 20.

There are five other squad number changes at Real Madrid ahead of the new campaign.
