Breaking: Barca Announce New No. 7

FC Barcelona have announced a new owner of their No. 7 shirt, which previously belonged to Philippe Coutinho.

Scroll through the images above to see the latest Barca stars who have worn the No. 7 shirt!

The Catalan giants announced on Friday that Antoine Griezmann has been given the iconic jersey.

The Frenchman wore the No. 7 shirt at Atletico Madrid before joining the Blaugrana, and did the same at Real Sociedad earlier in his career.

He has also worn the same number for France, including during their 2018 FIFA World Cup triumph in Russia.

"I would like to get the No. 7 shirt back," Griezmann said back in March, and his wish has now come true.

When he moved to the Camp Nou, the number was occupied by Coutinho, who has seemingly given it up for the upcoming season.

Griezmann switches from 17 to 7, as was confirmed by the club's social media channels.
