Barcelona have released the shirt numbers for the players who will be involved in Sunday’s Gamper Trophy encounter against Juventus, yet the No.10 shirt of Lionel Messi will not be given to any squad member.
Despite announcing the Argentine’s departure, the iconic shirt will remain vacant during the traditional season curtain-raiser at the Camp Nou, at least for now.
The brother of the Emir of Qatar confirms Messi is signing for Paris Saint-Germain.
Memphis Depay will wear the No.9, which was previously occupied by Martin Braithwaite, while Sergio Aguero will make his debut with the No.19, according to Marca.
