Clarified the dilemma of the numbers

The Madrid The preseason started with a too long squad (30 players) and the board was forced to cut it. Odegaard will be the next to leave after they did Sergio Bouquets and Varane, in addition to the new transfers of Brahim Diaz and Kubo. With the departure of the five, the white team is finally left with 25 first team chips, the maximum that allows to register The league. It is not yet final, because it will be about carrying out new sales and it might even arrive Mbappe in the last days of the market. If the French ends up in the white ranks, it would force the sports management to find accommodation for another footballer. Nevertheless, the feeling is that the most complicated work in terms of departures is already done.

With the readjustment of the template, the numbers seem to have been defined. It should be remembered that all those who played against Alavés will keep the number until the end of the season since the competition does not allow changes once it has debuted. The footballers who did not have minutes in Mendizorroza they are still open to change, but it seems that there will not be.

The only ones they didn’t have were Ceballos and Vallejo, but everything points to which Utrera will wear the 25 that he has left free Rodyrgo (the Brazilian has changed to 21 that Odegaard has left without an owner) and the hand, the 5 released by Varane. The latter still looks like a Madrid player on the La Liga website, but it should be updated before the match against Levante next Sunday (22:00 Movistar LaLiga).

In addition to Rodrygo, there are other footballers who change their number. Bale, which led the eleven during its first stage, the 18 as seen in the match against Alavés. Jovic, who also played, will wear the 16. The rest remains, for the moment, the same as last year.
