With Oliver Torres on the brink of making a permanent move to Portuguese giants Porto, the number 10 shirt was up for grabs at Atletico. Now we know who will inherit the shirt once worn by Arda Turan prior to his ignominious departure from the club.
Atletico’s new number 10 is Belgian attack Yannick Carrasco, who last season wore number 21. Here are the other shirt numbers for this season’s Atletico squad:

Any surprises in that list for you? I had wondered if Koke or Saul might take the number 10, but Carrasco probably makes the most sense. Griezmann isn’t giving up the seven shirt, six and eight are totally appropriate for Koke and Saul. Plus Carrasco figures to be a key man in this year’s squad.
