Real Madrid News Latest: The Brazilian football star Vinicius Jr. has requested wear Real Madrid’s iconic No. 7 jersey for the upcoming 2023–24 campaign.

The famous jersey number has a unique place in the hearts of Real Madrid supporters all around the globe. It has previously been worn by football greats like Cristiano Ronaldo, Raul Gonzalez, Emilio Butragueno, Raymond Kopa, Amancio, and Juanito.

The confirmation came earlier today when it was announced that Vinicius Jr had been awarded the prestigious No. 7 shirt, which had become vacant after Eden Hazard’s departure. Vinicius had been wearing the No. 20 jersey for a while, but with the opportunity to inherit the No. 7, he decided to make the bold request to the club officials himself.

According to MARCA reports, Vinicius declared his desire to wear the No. 7 jersey and notably emphasized his desire to emulate Raul, Butragueo, and Cristiano Ronaldo. Recognizing the young player’s enormous fan appeal and ability to continue the heritage of the famous number, the club kindly granted his request.

Vinicius Jr. has developed into the face of Real Madrid in recent years because to his extraordinary talent and electrifying performances on the field. The 22-year-old winger has demonstrated incredible promise and skill despite his young age.

Real Madrid’s No. 7 jersey has a long history, but once Cristiano Ronaldo left the club in 2018, it started to lose some of its luster. Other players like Mariano Diaz and Eden Hazard were not as effective as projected in trying to fill the vacuum. There is new optimism that the famous number will shine again now that Vinicius Jr is assuming the role.

Vinicius’ confidence and desire to lead the squad from the front are evident by the fact that he asked for the No. 7 shirt. His maturity and dedication to the club are demonstrated by his reluctance to crumble under the burden of donning such a renowned number.
