Leonal Messi

Braithwaite, who scored one goal in 11 appearances for the Catalan giants after completing a surprise move from Leganes in February, currently wears the No. 19 shirt and is contracted to the club until 2024.

The former Middlesbrough striker has been linked with a move away from Barcelona in recent weeks but remains determined to stay put.

Braithwaite is one of a group of players who could potentially replace Messi as Barça’s No. 10…

Martin Braithwaite

Right, let’s get Braithwaite out of the way first.

The 29-year-old has virtually zero chance of becoming Barcelona’s new number 10.

You have to admire his guts for even asking in the first place. What on earth was he thinking?!

Just imagine for a second, if you will, the reaction of the fans if Braithwaite took Messi’s famous shirt number. Camp Nou would be ablaze hours later.
