Real Madrid Store Starts Selling Hazard’s Jersey with Ronaldo’s Number

Eden Hazard was just officially announced as a new Real Madrid player. However, the jersey has already gone on sale in the official Real Madrid store. Eden Hazard officially moved from Chelsea to Real Madrid. That was announced by Real Madrid on the club’s official website on Friday (06/07/2019) local time.

“Real Madrid and Chelsea have reached an agreement for Eden Hazard,” wrote a statement on the official website of Real Madrid. “Eden Hazard will join Real Madrid for the next five seasons until 30 June 2024.

“Eden Hazard will be introduced as a Real Madrid player on Thursday 13 June after undergoing a medical test,” continued the Real Madrid statement. After ascertaining that they are closer to Real Madrid, now one of the remaining puzzles is what number of back will be used by Eden Hazard.

The back number 10 which is Hazard’s favorite when wearing Chelsea and the Belgian national team has been used by Luka Modric at Real Madrid. It could be that Real Madrid asked Luka Modric to give his number to Hazard, but that decision would not be popular with El Real supporters.

Meanwhile, the official Real Madrid store located at El Prat Airport in Barcelona actually has sold costumes under the name Eden Hazard along with other back numbers. The new Real Madrid jersey that has an accent of golden color reads Eden Hazard with a back number 7.

Eden Hazard’s costume match is sold at 147.95 euros or around 2.3 million rupiah. As is known, number 7 is one of the legendary numbers at Real Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo until Raul Gonzales used that number.

It’s just that, like number 10, number 7 is also owned by another Real Madrid player, Mariano Diaz. However, if Real Madrid and Eden Hazard have agreed, it is not impossible that Mariano Diaz must submit the sacred back number.

The official Real Madrid store confirmed that Eden Hazard’s jersey with number 7 was already sold to the public.

In a long article on social media, Hazard explained the reason for leaving Stamford Bridge after seven years in Chelsea. “For my friends and family at Chelsea, you know now that I will join Madrid,” Hazard wrote on his Facebook.

“It’s no secret that my dream since childhood played there. I have tried my best not to distract me or the team through speculation circulating in the media, especially in the past six months.”

“I hope you understand that I have to continue my career just like each of you when you have the chance to realize your dream. Leaving Chelsea is the biggest and heaviest decision in my career so far.”

“Now I openly want to say one thing that is always clear to me, I love every moment at Chelsea. I was 21 years old when I joined Chelsea, then I grew up as an adult and professional player with all of you.”

“Of course there are difficult times, for the team and for me personally, this is professional football. Even when Chelsea are not playing well, I try to do my best and this is thanks to your extraordinary support. Fighting spirit, desire, and “refusing to give up is part of the culture at Chelsea and it comes directly from you,” Hazard concluded.
