The post Messi era: Barcelona already knows who they will give the number 10 shirt to

After many rumors to see what would happen to the number 10 shirt that Lionel Messi knew how to wear for so many years, Barcelona decided that the young promise, Ansu Fati, is the heir of the number of his shirt.

Lionel Messi left FC Barcelona. The forward was called to renew until 2026 but his agreement could not be signed and they could not register him in LaLiga without breaching the salary limit set by the body that regulates the competition. The Blaugrana club lost the best player in its history and one of the best of all time who has joined PSG.

In addition, after more than a decade, the number 10 of Barcelona is once again a dear orphan. Messi had worn the mythical number since 2008, when Ronadinho left the club after making the jump in his first years in the first team wearing the number '30' and later the '19'.

It is finally the Bisauguinean striker with a Spanish passport, Ansu Fati, who will wear the mythical number '10' as announced by Barça on social networks. A strong gesture by Barcelona, which received a lot of criticism on social networks, due to the pressure that Ansu could mean for having the 10. It is that the club not only projects the forward as its next star, but also gives him the 10, with everything that represents for the history of the club that number.
