Carvajal, Varane and Lucas Vázquez change numbers

New, comments

Carvajal with 2, Varane will wear 5 while Vázquez takes the 17 Arbeloa left vacant.

Real Madrid officially confirmed that Raphaël Varane, Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vázquez will be changing their numbers before the start of the season.

Varane will wear number 5 from now on. The French defender used number 2 since he signed for Real Madrid and decided to make a change. Dani Carvajal seized the opportunity and took number 2, leaving the 15 he wore after his season on loan with Leverkusen vacant. Meanwhile, Lucas Vázquez seems to like number 17 better than 18 and took Arbeloa's former number.

Other than that, Real Madrid announced that Morata and Coentrao will wear number 21 and number 15 respectively. These changes are quite common every off-season. Last year, Isco changed his number 23 for the 22 while Nacho took number 6 instead of 18.

Real Madrid will begin their pre-season in the next few days before traveling to the United States for their pre-season stage.
