Barcelona have officially passed down Lionel Messi’s No.10 shirt to Ansu Fati.
The club confirmed this on Wednesday via their social media channels.
Fati was presented with the shirt with the caption: “Our new number 10. Made in La Masia. ANSUFATI.”
Speculation over whether Barca would retire the No.10 shirt has been raging since Messi left for Paris Saint-Germain.
Ansu has been given the honour of following in the footsteps of Messi, who is now continuing his career in France after joining PSG on a free transfer.
Ansu has been trusted with the No.10 shirt after a hugely promising start to his career at Barca, who brought him into the first-team fold in 2019 following his rise through their academy ranks over the previous seven years.
