Real Madrid will not hand Eden Hazard his trademark No.10 shirt when he finally completes his much-anticipated transfer from Chelsea , the UK Sun reports.
This is because the Spanish giants are unwilling to strip current Ballon d’Or holder , Luka Modric of the number.
However , Hazard will have to make do with Cristiano Ronaldo’s old No.7 shirt ,
when he arrives at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Striker Mariano Diaz , who rejoined the club from Lyon last summer , currently wears the number and has no issues with giving it up following a poor season.
Hazard has worn the No.10 shirt for Chelsea for the majority of his Premier League career , inheriting the jersey from Juan Mata , after the Spaniard was sold to Manchester United in 2014.
