Eden Hazard will take on the No. 7 shirt in his first season at Real Madrid, the club announced on Friday.
The Belgian will take the famous number from Mariano Diaz, who wore it last year during his first campaign with the club
The Belgian wore the No. 50 in the pre-season, but will now take on the number that Cristiano Ronaldo wore during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Mariano Diaz wore the No. 7 last season in Madrid’s first campaign after Ronaldo’s move to Juventus, but the striker has now switched to the No. 24 to give Hazard the famous shirt.
