5 Barcelona Players That Could Be Given Lionel Messi's Number Ten Jersey

Barcelona does not currently have a player wearing the number ten shirt, as they are yet to give the shirt to another player since Messi's left the club weeks ago to join PSG.

The number 10 shirt at Barcelona is a very big number and many players like Ronaldinho, Messi, Maradona, and Rivaldo that have worn the number 10 shirt, are respected by the club, as they achieved so many things for the club whilst putting on that number.

Here are 5 players that can wear the number ten shirt at Barcelona:-

1. Phillipe Coutinho - one of the best players in Europe. The Brazilian has not found his football career in a good position, since he joined Barcelona in 2017. Coutinho's suffered an injury at the start of last season, but he is expected to be back soon. Coutinho's football talent has not been questioned and he is likely one of the players Barcelona could give the number ten shirt.

2. Pedri - The Spanish International who joined Barcelona back in September 2019, has quickly impressed the fans and the club with remarkable football ability. Pedri laid his mark in Europe last term, playing more games(73) than any other players in the 2020/2021 season. The Spaniard is an amazing talent, and one of the few players that can wear the number ten shirt at Barcelona.

3. Ansu Fati - Ansu Fati is now back in The Barcelona squad, since he withdrew from the squad in November 2020, due to a serious injury, that saw him missed out on the rest of the season. Ansu Fati at a very young age impressed the fans and even had a good duo connection with Lionel Messi when they both played together. If he continues impressing the club, he will get to put on the number ten shirt at Barcelona. 

The other three players than can also wear the shirt if they improve their game and carry the squad the same way Lionel Messi carried Barcelona on his shoulder for years are - 

4. Antoine Griezmann 

5. Martin Braithwaite
