Since joining Barcelona as a fresh-faced 13-year-old, Messi has spent the majority of his time with the Catalan club and has predominantly wore the number 10 shirt.
According to Get French Football News, the six-time Ballon d'Or winner will take the number 30 shirt, having allegedly rejected Neymar's offer to take over his shirt number as the pair look to reunite.
Interestingly, 30 was the number worn by Messi at Barca when he first broke into the senior set up as a teenager.
He wore that shirt from 2004/05 for two season until 2006/07, when he then took on the number 19 jersey that was vacated by Spanish left-back Fernando Navarro. Could 19 be the number for Messi?

During a tearful press conference on Sunday, the 34-year-old said an emotional goodbye to the Catalans after 21 years, 34 major trophies and 672 goals in 778 appearances.
And just days later, the Argentina international was pictured arriving in the French capital with a beaming smile, as he was greeted by an army of PSG supporters.
