How Will Real Madrid Line Up With Kylian Mbappe?
4 min read

Just a day after winning the 2023/24 UEFA Champions League, Real Madrid made headlines by signing Kylian Mbappe, arguably the best football player in the world. The World Cup winner with France ended his 7-year tenure at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), where he won multiple league titles but never fulfilled his dream of lifting the Champions League trophy.

The 25-year-old Mbappe joined Los Blancos on a free transfer after his contract with PSG expired. His signing bonus reportedly ranges between 125-150 million euros, with an annual salary of around 15 million euros (after taxes). The acquisition of Mbappe, arguably the best player in the world, will undoubtedly add a new dimension to the European champions. Here's a look at how Real Madrid might line up in the 2024-25 season with their star signing.

Goalkeeper

Thibaut Courtois
Despite enduring an injury-plagued season, Thibaut Courtois made a triumphant return in the UEFA Champions League final, keeping a clean sheet against Dortmund. He remains one of the best goalkeepers globally and will reclaim his spot as Real Madrid's number one.

Antonio Rudiger – CB
Since joining from Chelsea in 2022, Antonio Rudiger has been a defensive powerhouse for Real Madrid. His ability to play out from the back and command the defense makes him indispensable.

David Alaba – CB

Federico Valverde – CM
