The iconic number, which has also been worn by club legends, Raul and Emilio Butragueno, remains vacant following Ronaldo’s move to Juventus.

Ronaldo left Madrid as their all-time highest goalscorer to join the Italian giants earlier this summer in a 100-million-euro deal.

According to Spanish radio station, Cadena COPE, the Champions League holders have reserved the No.7 shirt for Diaz.
