Ramos reveals who'll get the no.7 jersey

Ramos reveals who'll inherit Cristiano's no.7 jersey at Real Madrid

July 21, 2018 By Ali M.
With the five-time Ballon d'Or winner now gone, his iconic shirt number is up for grabs at Santiago Bernabeu.

A team's number can become synonymous with a single player, as is the case with Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo. The number seven jersey has been donned by Raul but the Portuguese icon has made it his own since succeeding the Spaniard.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner made history wearing that number and whoever is handed it will feel its weight. However, this raises the question: who will inherit the number seven jersey at Santiago Bernabeu? Diario Gol claims to have the answer.

The Spanish publication reports that Sergio Ramos has revealed the heir. That man will reportedly be Marco Asensio, the Spanish sensation who appears destined to make a name for himself at Los Blancos.

It is no kept secret that the 22-year-old is one of Real Madrid's most promising men. Competition for a starting role in Zidane's squad last season was fierce, meaning the attacker had to make do with super-sub roles.

Now that Ronaldo has left the building, Asensio could find playing time easier to come by. Additionally, Julen Lopetegui is believed to be a fan of the Spaniard.

The former Mallorca prodigy has exhibited moments of greatness with the Champions League holder. His amazing goals in the UEFA and Spanish Super Cups against Sevilla and Barcelona respectively will not be forgotten anytime soon.

However, Diario Gol adds that Asensio is wanted by Chelsea in a deal that would see Eden Hazard move to the Spanish capital. Perez might accept this demand from the Blues if it is the only means to acquire the Belgian ace. Should the player-plus-cash deal be avoided, the Furia Roja starlet could be Real Madrid's next number seven.
