Real Madrid will present new star signing Kylian Mbappé at the Bernabéu on July 16, the club announced on Wednesday.

After his contract at Paris Saint-Germain expired this summer, Mbappé signed a five-year contract with Real Madrid, ending the La Liga giants’ years-long pursuit of the star.

Madrid fans are expected to pack the 81,000 capacity Bernabéu for Mbappé’s unveiling, in what would be the club’s largest-scale player presentation since the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009.

Mbappé’s France were eliminated by Spain in the Euro 2024 semifinals this week, after the forward suffered a broken nose in his first game of the tournament and scored just one goal in five appearances.

“It was a failure. We had the ambition to be European champions…We aren’t that, so it’s a failure,” Mbappé said afterwards.

“We have to move on. It’s been a long year. I’m going to go on holiday and get some rest — that’ll do me a lot of good, and I’ll try and come back strongly.”

The question of whether Mbappé will travel with Real Madrid to the United States for their preseason campaign has not yet been answered. The team’s American tour starts later this month at Soldier Field against AC Milan and continues to MetLife Stadium on August 3 and Bank of America Stadium on August 6 with games against Chelsea and Barcelona.
