Real Madrid's website has crashed following the announcement of Kylian Mbappe's long-awaited move to the Spanish giants. 

The French superstar was finally unveiled as the newest member of the now 15-time Champions League winners on Monday. The club confirmed his free transfer to the Bernabeu in a short communiqué. 

The excitement of Madridistas and the wider footballing public has seemingly led to the club's website going down. 

Mbappe has long been courted by Madrid, though each turn has seen him ultimately stay at Paris Saint-Germain, signing several bumper contracts.

Last summer, however, he made it clear he would not be triggering a one-year extension, before announcing that he would be leaving at the end of the season on a free.

He has agreed to take a major pay cut after signing a five-year contract, with the 25-year-old due to receive 15m euros net (£12.8m) a season at Madrid, down from the 25m euros net (£21.4m) he earned in Paris.

'So happy and proud to join the club of my dream. Nobody can understand how excited I am right now. Can’t wait to see you, Madridistas, and thanks for your unbelievable support.

'¡Hala Madrid!'

Though he arrives on a free deal, reports in February claimed that the player would be handed a whopping £85.5million as a signing on fee - £200,000 more than the world record price Los Blancos paid for Gareth Bale in 2013. 

Mbappe's arrival comes at a curious point in the season, with France building up to the European Championship in Germany this summer; big transfer deals ordinarily come after major tournaments, rather than beforehand. 

He will line up next season alongside the likes of Ballon d'Or contenders Vinicius Jnr and Jude Bellingham, as well as Brazil star Rodrygo Goes and fellow new boy Endrick, widely regarded as perhaps the greatest wonderkid on the planet. 

While Real Madrid's already embarrassing array of talent now reaches a whole new plane, it does hand Carlo Ancelotti something of a headache. 

His side have romped to a 15th Champions League title - as well as the Supercopa and LaLiga crowns to boot - powered by goals from Vinicius Jnr and Rodrygo, with Bellingham playing in behind.
