Hazard and the rest of the Los Blancos squad, including Gareth Bale and Isco, arrived for the start of pre-season on Monday.
The team took part in medical exams following their holidays and are now traveling to Montreal for their pre-season tour.
The 28-year-old took to social media to express his excitement about being at the Spanish giants following his €100 million (R1.59 billion) move from Chelsea, which could still rise around €150 million (R2.38 billion) based on performance-based add-ons.
“Day 1 in the new office,” he posted on his Instagram account.
Spanish publication AS claim that Hazard was seen wearing the No.23 shirt as provisional measure while he is waiting to see whether Mariano Diaz, who currently holds the iconic No.7, will still move this window.
The 23 is also quite a historic number, though, as it was worn by former ‘Galactico’ David Beckham.
