Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid: Where does forward fit in Carlo Ancelotti’s star-studded attack?

Kylian Mbappe has signed for Real Madrid after leaving PSG at the end of his contract; the 25-year-old joins a star-studded attack at the European champions, with Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo and Jude Bellingham among the ranks – but how will the Frenchman fit into the team?

Jude Bellingham slipped in Vinicius Jr to score and Real Madrid’s key forward pair had done it. A Champions League trophy delivered without a recognised, world-class No 9 in the team.

All the talk before, during and after Saturday’s win over Borussia Dortmund at Wembley surrounded how Carlo Ancelotti has masterminded another Real success having lost Karim Benzema last summer to Saudi Arabia. Now the talk is about how another French forward can take them to another level.

Kylian Mbappe will arrive at Real Madrid having snubbed the Spanish giants three times. Once after a trial with Real’s U12 team, then twice to favour PSG in 2017 and 2022. Now he will arrive at the Bernabeu when his new side need him most.
