Real's New No.7 Revealed?

Real Madrid did not sign a big-money replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo last season, but it now seems Los Blancos have found their new high-profile No.7.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see famous players who've worn Real's No.7 shirt.

The Spanish giants announced the arrival of Luka Jovic on Tuesday, with the 21-year-old striker joining from Eintracht Frankfurt for a reported fee of €60 million (R977 million) plus add-ons.

Real want to continue their transfer plans, with Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Olympique Lyon left-back Ferland Mendy next in line.

Latest reports claim Real will unveil Hazard as their new No.7, with shirt sponsor adidas keen to introduce the Belgium to the Madrid fanbase in the new 2019/20 home kit, which is yet to be released.

According to AS, the club are hoping to present Hazard as first player in their new adidas home kit, with only final details to be ironed out around his arrival.

English publication The Sun claim that Hazard will wear the iconic No.7 shirt, which was worn by Ronaldo before he joined Juventus.

Hazard, who wore the No.10 jersey at Chelsea, would take over the historic number from Mariano Diaz after the striker failed to live up to expectations under the weight of the historic number.

The 28-year-old is set to complete a €110 million (R1.8 billion) move from the Blues, with another €15 million (R244 million) in performance-based add-ons.

He might have preferred to stick with the No.10 shirt, but that is owned by Luka Modric.
