Summer signing ,Mariano Diaz, has been handed the number 7 jersey by club president, Perez. The jersey was more recently worn by two Real Marid greats,Raul and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Mariano was brought back by the Los Blancos from Olympique Lyonnais having previously played for the Santiago outfit but was unable to break into the first team. He was then offloaded to Lyon with Madrid retaining 35% of his transfer right.
He became a goal poacher at Lyon as a result of the deadly patnership of Memphis Depay, Nnabil Fekir and himself – And as such became a sought after striker around Europe. Real Madrid were however quick to hijack him as they have 35% stake in his transfer right.
