Barca squad number update: Raphinha, Franck Kessie, Andreas Christensen, Torres and Aubameyang have gotten a new shirt number.
There is a lot of enthusiasm in the Barcelona camp with less than a month until the start of the new season, especially following the arrival of no fewer than five elite players this month.
At the same time, Barça has authorized the sale of a few squad periphery players, and many more are anticipated to do the same in the upcoming weeks.
The jersey numbers for the Barcelona players might undergo a big revamp for the upcoming season due to the team’s numerous changes.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the recent preseason friendly versus Inter Miami gave us a hint about the future jersey numbers for the Barca players.
Franck Kessie’s decision to wear Sergio Busquets’ 5 jersey against Olot caused quite a stir, but the Ivorian was assigned Ferran Torres’ 19 shirt for the match against Inter Miami.
Torres will presumably wear Adama Traore’s 11 jersey in exchange, as Traore left Camp Nou after his loan agreement expired. Raphinha’s famous jersey number was widely anticipated, but it appears the Brazilian will continue to wear the 22 uniform he previously wore at Leeds United.
Pierre-Emerick When Aubameyang joined Barça in January, he was forced to make do with the 25 uniform. However, with Luuk de Jong’s departure, he may wear the 17 jersey in the upcoming campaign.
Dortmund supporters have pleasant memories of Aubameyang since he had already made a name for himself as one of the best attackers in Europe when he wore the 17 on his back.
Various new signings Inaki Pena has taken over Neto’s 13, while Andreas Christensen has assumed Clement Lenglet’s 15 before he moved for Tottenham.
In contrast to fellow emerging star Pedri, who has been given the #8 kit after establishing himself as the center of the Barcelona midfield, Gavi will continue to wear the #30 uniform, at least until a resolution is reached on his contract renewal.
As the team continues to get ready for the upcoming season, further information on the jersey numbers for Barcelona players, including Robert Lewandowski, will be made public in the upcoming weeks.
