Mbappe aka KM7 is now set to knock off Ronaldo by taking over as football’s most iconic number 7. PSG just revealed on Twitter using a video with the hashtag “The Fu7ure is now” that the teenage sensation will be ditching the No.29 jersey for the new No.7 iconic jersey.


“I will try and continue with my progress on the field and I think for me it was the right time to change number, I think its a kind of affirmation. Number 7 is a legendary number, many great players who have worn it. I hope I could do credit in the field with this number.” Mbappe said minutes after the announcement.
