The club officially confirmed this on Wednesday.

Barca had considered leaving the number unused for the 2021/2022 season. However, LaLiga rules insist first-team players must wear numbers 1-25.

Ansu, who only returned to training following a nine-month injury layoff, had initially been given the No. 17 shirt for the upcoming campaign.

The forward has previously worn No. 22 and No. 33 since making his debut for the Catalans in 2019.

Messi wore the No. 10 at Barca since 2008, having previously worn No. 30 and No. 19.

The Argentina forward inherited the No. 10 shirt from Ronaldinho, with Juan Roman Riquelme and Rivaldo among those to wear it before him.
