Kylian Mbappé announced his arrival in Spain on Instagram on Tuesday.
Twenty-four hours before Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League last 16 second leg against Real Madrid, Mbappe shared multiple photos of himself at the Bernabeu.
Mbappé captioned the post with a Spanish flag, a pushpin emoji and “@championsleague”.
Earlier on Tuesday, PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino said he expected Mbappe to be fit to face Real.
Idrissa Gueye had stood on Mbappe’s foot during training on Monday, but an MRI scan showed no fracture.
Pochettino told reporters, as reported by Yahoo, “We’ve talked, he’s fine.
“At the time he was crying and in pain. But two hours later he could walk easily. I hope he can train well after the press conference.”
Mbappe did indeed train with his teammates after Pochettino addressed the media.
The 23-year-old looked good as he took part in a light fitness session and a passing exercise.
PSG will go into the first leg 1-0 on Wednesday after Mbappé scored a late winner in the first leg in Paris.
This will not be Mbappe’s first game at the Bernabeu. He scored there in a 2-2 draw in the 2019-20 UCL group stage, after being on the losing side in 2018 when Real won 3-1.
Mbappe has less than four months to go at PSG and a summer move to Real has been rumored.
But Pochettino is not worried transfer rumors will affect Mbappe on the pitch.
“He is mature, even though he is young,” Pochettino added. “I don’t doubt Kylian. He won’t change the way he plays because of what happens on the outside.”
