If you could be any of the current Barcelona players, who would you pick?
It’s safe to assume the majority of people reading this would choose Lionel Messi, the world’s best footballer and arguably the greatest player of all time.
Neymar and Luis Suarez, Messi’s fellow ‘MSN’ members, would probably be the second and third highest picks on the list.

But Luis Enrique wouldn’t be any of the MSN if he could do it all again.
The Barcelona boss would, in fact, come back as midfielder Sergio Busquets.
Enrique: I'd come back as Busquets!
“Good question!” Enrique told Sport when asked which footballer he would liked to be reincarnated as. “If I was reincarnated I'd like to be Busquets.
“Tall, good looking, nice and a good player. I’d be happy to be any Barça football player, but also [my hometown team] Sporting Gijón."
Enrique was a goalscoring midfielder
Enrique can probably see some of himself in Busquets, although the former was more of a goal threat.
The current Barcelona boss scored 109 goals in 300 appearances for the Catalan giants between 1996 and 2004.
Busquets: The best midfielder in the world?
Because of Barcelona’s star-studded squad, Busquets has often gone under the radar but there’s no doubt the Spain international is one of the world’s best midfielders.
In fact, there’s a good argument to suggest that Busquets is, at this moment in time, the world’s best central midfielder.
