Mbappe To Take Zidane’s Iconic Shirt Number At Real
Madrid
Real Madrid have reserved Zinedine Zidane’s iconic No 5
shirt for Kylian Mbappe, according to AS.
The LaLiga giants are confident of signing the player from
Paris Saint-Germain, despite a second bid of €180million
being knocked back by the Ligue 1 club.
Mbappe currently wears no 7 for PSG and no 10 for
France.
But Real have reserved their no 5 shirt for him, as Eden
Hazard wears no 7 and Luka Modric has taken the no 10
shirt. .
Mbappe has always dreamed of playing for Real Madrid
and previously named Zidane as his childhood idol.
Therefore, the opportunity to wear the club’s iconic No 5
will appeal to the French international.
As it stands, the No 5 shirt currently belongs to Jesus
Vallejo. But the club will pass it on to Mbappe, as Vallejo is
unlikely to be a regular first-team starter this campaign.
