Eden Hazard forced to wear No23 Jersey after Modric, Mariano refused to hand him the No 10 or 7 jersey

Newly signed ex- Chelsea star, Eden Hazard has chosen No.23 formerly worn by Beckham after his new teammates, Luka Modric and Mariano refused to hand him the No 10 or 7 jersey .

Hazard played with the number 10 during his spell at Chelsea, but that squad number is currently worn by Luka Modric and the Croatian star has already made it clear he will not let go of it.

Eden Hazard decide to wear the number 23 shirt with Real Madrid this season. He’s an NBA fan and wants to wear the number Michael Jordan, Anthony Davis among others wore.

“I have been able to talk to Modric through [Mateo] Kovacic,” Hazard said at his unveiling. “I was joking when I asked him to lend me the No. 10.

He said no, so I’ll have to find another number.” The Ballon D’Or winner is an important player with Madrid and he looks likely to remain in the starting XI first .

Hazard has been forced to look for another shirt and has also been drawn to the famous number 7 jersey which was worn by Cristiano Ronaldo for nine years before he left.

Hazard joined Real.Madrid earlier this summer, leaving Chelsea, after seven years in west London.

And Hazard has resolved into making number 23 his third choice which was famously worn by David Beckham and was recently vacated by Isco.
