Ronaldo expresses his exitment to watch Mbappe at Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo expresses his anticipation for watching Kylian Mbappe's performance at Real Madrid, following the long-awaited confirmation of Mbappe's transfer to the club.

Madrid made the announcement, revealing the agreement reached to acquire Mbappe on a free transfer before the expiration of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain later this month.

The French forward's journey to Madrid has been a subject of speculation since his breakthrough season with AS Monaco in 2016/17.

Despite turning down Madrid's offer in 2022, Mbappe has now finalized his move to the Santiago Bernabeu, prompting Ronaldo, a club legend, to extend his regards to the 25-year-old on social media.

Ronaldo took to Instagram to express his excitement about witnessing Mbappe shine at the Bernabeu. Mbappe reciprocated the sentiment by sharing a throwback picture with Ronaldo, highlighting the influence Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane had on him during his formative years.

Currently gearing up for Euro 2024 with France, Mbappe will soon join his new Madrid teammates for a pre-season tour in the United States.

Expected to commence the 2024/25 season with Los Blancos after missing out on France's Olympic team, Mbappe might make his competitive debut for Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup against Atalanta.

On the other hand, Ronaldo endured a disappointing season with Al Nassr, missing out on the King Cup and finishing as runners-up in the Saudi Pro League. He aims to rebound from this subpar club season with a successful campaign for Portugal in Euro 2024.

As anticipation builds for Mbappe's highly awaited debut at Real Madrid, fans eagerly await to witness his skills illuminate the Santiago Bernabeu.

With Ronaldo extending his support and Mbappe's own excitement evident, all eyes are set on the French forward as he prepares to don the iconic white jersey and embark on a new chapter in his illustrious career.

The stage is set for Mbappe to make an indelible mark and carve his name into the rich history of Los Blancos, adding a new chapter to the legacy of one of football's most storied clubs.
