“I’ll follow the footsteps of my respected senior…” Mbappe confirmed “Ninth” → Valverde takes the 8th place for Cross

Real Madri’s jersey number was revealed.

Real Madrid (Real) announced on its website on the 10th (Korea time) that “some players’ uniform numbers will be changed ahead of the 2024/25 season. Edouard Camavinga, who has worn No. 12 so far, will wear No. 6. Federico Valverde has been changed from No. 15 to No. 8, while Oreliaun Chouameni has been changed from No. 18 to No. 14. Arda Güller, who wore No. 24 last season, will wear No. 15 and Jesus Bayejo will wear No. 18.”

“Kylian Mbappe will wear No. 9. All uniforms will be available at the Santiago Bernabeu store and all official Real channels from tomorrow,” it said.

Although the announcement is made before the start of every season, much attention was focused on Real’s allocation of this season’s number. The interest in who will receive the number of “super-special star” Mbappe, who joined through the transfer market this summer, and Tony Cross, who said goodbye to the ground after last season, was crucial.

No. 7 and No. 10, which are known to be Mbappe’s usual preference, were difficult to wear in Real. No. 7 is the number of the club’s “Ace” Vinicius Junior, and No. 10 is occupied by “Living Legend” Modric.

At one point, the possibility of Modric leaving the team led to the prospect that Mbappe could take over the No. 10. However, as Modric will be with the club next season, he will be next. 고수익알바

Fabrizio Romano, a reporter familiar with European soccer news, predicted, “Mbappe did not ask for the number 10 as a respect for Modric. If Modric leaves Real, Mbappe will inherit the number 10.”

As a result, Mbappe will wear the number 9 that Cristiano Ronaldo, who has identified himself as his idol several times in the past, received when he made his debut in Real. In the past, Ronaldo wore the number 9 uniform to avoid it because “legend” Raul Gonzalez was wearing number 7 when he entered Real.

On the other hand, Valverde is set to take over as his idol Kroos’ No. 8. However, this hardly appears to be an unexpected result. Kroos has always revealed in public that his successor is Valverde right after he announced his retirement.
