Mbappe's first words after signing for Real Madrid: The club of my dreams…

Kylian Mbappe is a happy man. He has fulfilled a lifelong dream of playing for Real Madrid, the club he aspired to join as a child when he visited Valdebebas and first donned the iconic white kit.

The new Real Madrid player shared an emotional message on social media, accompanied by four photos from his childhood visit to Real Madrid’s training complex.

“A dream come true. Very happy and proud to be part of the club of my dreams, Real Madrid. It’s impossible to explain how happy and excited I feel at this moment. I can’t wait to see you, Madridistas, and thank you for your incredible support. Hala Madrid!” wrote Mbappe on his account.

After many years of speculation and several failed attempts, Mbappe will wear the Real Madrid jersey next year. He is committed to the club until 2029, the end date of his initial contract.

Mbappe quickly updated his social media bio to reflect his new status as a Real Madrid and French national team player. He had already removed PSG from his profiles.

His clothing brand, Nike, dedicated a heartfelt tribute to him on Instagram. The message highlighted the universality and significance of his signing with Real Madrid.

“Greatness is a journey, not a destination,” read the caption, alongside an image that also stated: “Love your dreams until they love you back.”

Warm Welcome from New Teammates

Mbappe received a warm welcome from his new teammates. Vinicius Jr. shared his excitement on social media, Rodrygo dedicated eleven heart emojis to him, and the rest of the squad gradually reached out to greet and congratulate him.

This marks the beginning of a new chapter for Mbappe at Real Madrid, a dream that has finally become a reality for the French superstar.
