Reasons Why Real Madrid Unveils Eden Hazard Without a Shirt Number

Eden Hazard, Real Madrid Star

What is the shirt number for Eden Hazard? This is a question Real Madrid management could not provide an answer at the time of unveiling, and therefore he was presented without a shirt number.

However, the two possible numbers are number 15 with Fede Valverde and number 17 with Lucas Vazquez.

The two are possible shirt numbers but Real Madrid is faced with speculations on which number will please Hazard.

Hazard wears 10 at Chelsea and it seems not a possible option at Real Madrid. The Number 10 shirt is occupied by Luka Modric who won the FIFA men’s best player award for 2018.

Eden Hazard claims he made a joking request to Modric on releasing the number 10 shirt but was turned down.

Other possible numbers due to positioning to be considered for Hazard though in use by big stars at Real Madrid are number 7 with Mariano or 11 with Gareth Bale.

What reason to be used to convince Mariano or Gareth Bale to leave current shirt number for Hazard is yet to be factored by Real Madrid.

Hazard arrived at Real Madrid on Thursday with 100 million euros (113 million dollars) with another 45 million euros in potential add-ons.
