Messi appeared to be in good spirits in the photo in the striking pink strip and green as Barca simply wrote his name and an emoji of a goat.
Other Barca stars who wore the jersey include Ansu Fati and Frenkie de Jong and among the female stars Asisat Oshoala was featured.
The shirt will cost a massive £160 to have Messi on the back and Champions League logos as posted on Barcelona's official website.
Ronald Koeman will be counting on Messi to help the club win titles this campaign after the club went home without winning a single trophy last season.
Several big names, including Arturo Vidal, Luis Suarez, Gerard Pique have been linked with an exit after the Dutch coach was hired.
Koeman is also looking at recruiting his fellow countrymen including and Memphis Depay from Lyon and Georginio Wijnaldum from Liverpool.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Messi will not be available to resume training with Barcelona for the first time this season because he has not conducted tests for coronavirus.
The club captain made a massive U-turn about leaving the Camp Nou after submitting a transfer request.
But the 33-year-old admitted he stayed because he could not stand doing a legal battle with the club he has spent close to 20 years with.
Legit.ng also reported that Nigerian striker Asisat Oshoala who currently plays for Barcelona's female team has explained that her parents never wanted her to play football while growing up in Lagos.
