Hazard did not ask for No.7 but Real Madrid gave it to him

Eden Hazard did not ask Real Madrid to give him the No.7 jersey, but it was the club who trust him and give him the glory to wear the shirt, according to AS.

Real Madrid had announced on Friday that Hazard will wear the iconic No.7 at the team, which once belonged to legends like Ronaldo, Raul and Juanito.

However, AS claims that the decision had nothing to do with Hazard’s demand, it was Real Madrid who decided to give him the number.

Since the No.10 at Real Madrid belongs to Ballon d’Or winner Modric who is unlikely to give up the number, Hazard has no particular choice for a jersey number.
