Barcelona invited Juventus to contest the Joan Gamper Trophy at the Camp Nou in an attempt to get the two best footballers on the planet, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, to share the pitch in the hope of raising money from television revenues. and ticket sales.
That move, however, has been completely sidetracked, as the Argentine left the team and moved to Paris-Saint Germain.
Barcelona has taken the opportunity to announce the squad for the preseason final, with updated numbers. Unsurprisingly, the number 10 has not been selected. But the most important news on the list comes when Ansu Fati is included in the list, with # 17.
Riqui Puig makes an appearance with Xavi’s iconic # 6. New signings Sergio Agüero, Memphis Depay, and Emerson Royal also make the cut with new numbers on the back. Agüero gets the n. 19, despite rumors of his departure, Depay gets No. 9 and Emerson seems to have chosen the legendary No. 22 by Dani Alves.
Naturally, this means that Martin Braithwaite has had to change his jersey and has taken No. 12. Pedri, Eric García, and Oscar Mingueza are in international service with Spain at the Olympics and will miss the game.
