Barcelona players led by their captain Lionel Messi arrived in England in style ahead of Wednesday’s Uefa Champions League quarter-final match against Manchester United.
British newspaper Daily Mail reports that Messi and his teammates arrived in England donning grey Thom Browne three-piece suits valued at Ksh500,000 suits each.
The squad also included Luis Suarez and Phillipe Coutinho, formerly Liverpool players, plus France World Cup winning star Ousmane Dembele who is a doubt for the match as he’s struggling with a hamstring injury.
The Spanish team was expected to train at Old Trafford on Tuesday evening.
On social media, fans have been exchanging banter ahead of the match.
Finally UEFA has approved that MAN UTD FC can use two goalkeepers tonight against Barcelona #UCL #MUNBAR

Reports reaching me indicate that there has been an incident at an undisclosed Manchester hotel. A man, Lionel Messi, 31, is awake from his sleep. He went to bed last night.#MUNBAR
