Will Eden Hazard take Gareth Bale’s Real Madrid number?

The arrival of Eden Hazard at Real Madrid could spell the end of Gareth Bale’s time at the Bernabeu – but could the Spanish giants make the Welshman feel even more unwanted by giving his number 11 jersey to the newcomer?


Hazard is fancied at 2/1 with Betway to be presented the number 11 shirt when he is officially unveiled as a Real Madrid player at the Bernabeu on Thursday.

Bale, of course, currently occupies the 11 jersey and the bookmaker’s odds could be the latest clue indicating the Welshman is on his way out this summer.

Hazard was Chelsea’s number 10 before signing for Madrid and is the same number for the Belgium national team, but Betway is 9/1 for the £90million signing to dislodge Luka Modric, who currently wears that number for the Galacticos.

Number 7 is the bookmaker’s second favourite in the betting at 7/2, while number 17, which Hazard put his name to in his early days at Chelsea, can be backed at 6/1.

“The number 10 shirt at Real Madrid is currently filled by Luka Modric and we can’t see the Croatian stepping aside for the Eden Hazard,” Betway’s Alan Alger told Bettingpro.com.

“If Hazard is to take one of the big numbers on offer at Madrid, then replacing Gareth Bale as their number 11 wouldn’t be the most unpopular decision at the Bernabeu.

“Bale is odds-on to move to Manchester United in this window and Hazard is just 2/1 to take the Welshman’s shirt.

“Number 7, currently worn by Mariano Diaz, looks like the other shirt that Hazard could go for at 7/2, though filling the boots of Cristiano Ronaldo is no easy task.”
