Ansu Fati Inherits No.10 Shirt After Lionel Messi's Departure

Ansu Fati has been handed Lionel Messi’s No 10 shirt at Barcelona after the Argentine left the Nou Camp for Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

The 18-year-old, a product of the club's famed La Masia academy, has been out of action since November 2020 after suffering a ruptured meniscus in a win over Real Betis but will take over the iconic jersey upon his return after financial issues prevented Barca from handing Messi a new contract.

It’s still not clear when we’ll get to see Ansu back in action. There had been rumors he’d be fit after the current international break, but Ronald Koeman seemed to suggest that wasn’t the case in his most recent press conference.

The news comes after a dramatic deadline day from the Catalan giants that saw Antoine Griezmann, Emerson Royal, Ilaix Moriba, and Rey Manaj depart, while Luuk de Jong arrived on loan from Sevilla.

Do you think Ansu Fati deserves to inherit the no.10 jersey from Messi?
