FC Barcelona announced the squad list to face Deportivo Alavés in the last La Liga game of the season.

The 16-man squad list consists of: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Busquets, Suarez, Messi, Neto, Lenglet, Jordi Alba, Braithwaite, Roberto, De Jong, Vidal, Riqui Puig, Ansu Fati, Araujo, Arnau.

Arthur is out after Setién confirmed that the Brazilian picked up an ankle injury, but there is no official statement from the club yet.

Quique Setién will have another chance to show that he is capable of leading Barcelona’s upcoming Champions League campaign. However, things do not stand easy for him as his relationship with the dressing room has highly deteriorated.

Everyone has some kind of passion. For me, it is FC Barcelona. I started to write stories about the club I support in 2017, and have been lucky enough to be part of such a wonderful team.

Messi and Ronaldo have been mentioned, have been at the top of their game and have been the best for the last 15 years. We want to attract the best players.”

Speaking about the talent he has already managed to attract, Beckham added: “We already have players like Higuaín and Matuidi who already bring shine and glamour, but in the future we want to have the opportunity to bring big name signings.”

Back when Messi asked to leave Barcelona last summer, the Argentine was linked however briefly to a move to the MLS. Inter Miami, being the most possible suitors. However, Messi ended up staying in Spain after a complicated transfer saga.

There is no doubt that with Beckham at the helm, Inter Miami could attract a ton of big names in the future. However, a move to the States would most certainly be a step sideways for Messi, considering he still has years left at the top in Europe.
