With Kylian Mbappé's move to Real Madrid now official, talk will inevitably turn to how the Spanish club can fit the France superstar into their lineup.

Particularly, many are curious how Mbappé and stalwart Madrid attacker Vinicius Jr. will be able to co-exist.

Both players demand the ball and prefer to attack from the left-hand side, so questions will be asked of how the reigning Champions League winners will ensure that both players can thrive together.

Retired former France international Bacary Sagna believes there's lots of room for both star players in Madrid's starting lineup. Speaking to CoinPoker, Sagna explained that Madrid will likely have already spoken to Mbappé about his role before they agreed to a deal, and that manager Carlo Ancelotti will have already planned for the addition of the 25-year-old.

“I don’t think there will be any issues integrating Mbappé into the Real Madrid team," Sagna said. "Madrid will have already sorted that problem; they would have been speaking about his role and explained the project to him in great detail.

"He will know where he will play and what Ancelotti will expect from him. Mbappé will understand that there is a hierarchy within the squad and that Vinicius Junior will likely start most of the games from the left because that is a position that he has made his own over the last few years.

"Mbappé is a really clever kid. He will be able to adapt, and I expect Real Madrid to play in an even more fluid style when he joins. Mbappé, Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo will be given a lot of freedom to express themselves and they will rotate.

"When players like that have the freedom to move around the pitch and swap positions, it makes them even more dangerous.”
