Barcelona’s Legendary Number to Remain Vacant for the First Time in 27 years

1 min read

Barcelona FC, a club renowned for its rich footballing history, has always cherished its iconic number 10 jersey. For years, this revered shirt has been synonymous with legendary players, most notably Lionel Messi. However, recent developments have left fans intrigued about the fate of this iconic number.

In recent seasons, young talent Ansu Fati had the honor of donning the number 10 jersey. But, as fate would have it, he embarked on a loan journey to Brighton and Hove Albion, leaving the cherished number vacant. What’s more, neither of Barcelona’s promising new signings, Joao Cancelo nor Joao Felix, has chosen to inherit this prestigious number. Cancelo has opted for the number 2, while Felix will wear 14.

The 2023-24 season marks an unprecedented era for Barcelona, as it’s the first time since the 1995-96 season, when LaLiga standardized squad numbers, that the club does not have a number 10 among its ranks. This vacancy has sparked discussions among fans and experts alike, pondering who will carry on the legacy.

The future of the coveted number 10 jersey at Barcelona hangs in the balance. Speculation suggests it might find a new home with Vitor Roque upon his arrival in January, or it could potentially return to Ansu Fati when he completes his loan spell with Brighton next summer. Barcelona’s iconic number 10 continues to be a symbol of excellence, and its fate remains uncertain, leaving fans eager to see who will step up to embrace this prestigious legacy.
