Kylian Mbappe files several trademarks ahead of Real Madrid transfer including two unique phrases

Kylian Mbappe files several trademarks ahead of Real Madrid transfer including two unique phrases

Mbappe is preparing for his move.

Kylian Mbappe has filed several trademarks ahead of his blockbuster move to Real Madrid.

Last week Mbappe informed Paris Saint-Germain of his intention to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Despite reported interest from the likes of Manchester City, Man United and Liverpool, it looks like he will finally join Real Madrid, two years after he rejected the Spanish giants in favour of penning a new deal with PSG.

According to several reports, the 25-year-old will soon sign a contract - one that will includes a massive sign-on fee - to complete the most expensive 'free' transfer of all time.

In preparation for his move, the Frenchman has filed several new trademarks in order to boost his commercial income even further.

According to Spanish outlet AS, Mbappe recently requested the protection of his surname and his crossed-arm goal celebration pose.

The request was formalised on February 8 through a Parisian law firm before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

Mbappe has filed a trademark solely consisting of the term ‘Mbappé’, and has also sought to protect a new version of his goal celebration.

The image of him celebrating that he previously trademarked shows a figure in black, white, and grey, frozen in motion with a smiling pose, crossed arms, and hands under the armpits.


The new design is entirely in black, except for his arms and hands with raised thumbs, which stand out in white.

The World Cup winner has also requested protection for two phrases.

These are "Moi tu m’parles pas d’age” [Don’t talk to me about age] and "Le football il a changé" [Football has changed]. In addition, he has protected a drawing featuring the logo of one of the charitable activities - 'We care for all' - he is involved in.

The EUIPO, based in Alicante, Spain, has previously protected seven trademarks of Mbappe including his name and surname in various arrangements, as well as his initials.

The trademarks will operate in the European Union across a wide range of commercial areas including cosmetics, toothpaste, perfumery, diving suits, jewellery, binding material, umbrellas, bags, travel items, home textiles, clothing, footwear, toys, video games, and even Christmas tree ornaments.

Mbappe already has more trademarks than Cristiano Ronaldo (six) and Lionel Messi (four).
