In may be the off-season but Barcelona fans are still able to see club legend Lionel Messi on the streets of the city.
Barcelona street artist Axe Colours has painted a mural of the Argentinian legend, with Messi’s face surrounded by tinges of Barcelona’s blue and burgundy as well as Argentina’s light blue and white.
Tourists and locals have shown their appreciation for the mural, with plenty being spotted taking selfies as well as pictures of the artwork itself.
Check out some of the images below.
Second in the league, a quarter-finals berth in the Champions League and a bit of domestic silverware would represent a pretty good season for most clubs, but not for Barcelona.
Having seen their rivals, Real Madrid win La Liga and the biggest prize in Europe, last season would certainly have been tough to digest for the Catalan giants.
Their over-reliance on the trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar was exposed and with expensive signings under-performing, Barca now have to look to re-instate their status as one of the greatest clubs in Europe.

A photo for which Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi posed, with a fan, has created a social media stir, having gone viral for all the wrong reasons.
Apparently, Messi’s right knee in the picture looks in a weird shape, almost over-protruding and swollen and that has left many people scratching their heads.
The Argentine sensation is currently on a holiday with his fiancé, Antonella Roccuzzo, his kids, former Barca team-mate Cesc Fabregas and his family in Ibiza.

He, according to reports is set to marry Antonella this month itself in Argentina, where many of his Barcelona team-mates will also be present.
And while the little genius is enjoying his vacation off the pitch, we hope he is in fine shape and raring to go next season.
