A photo of Barcelona star Lionel Messi is spreading like wildfire on social media, because it shows him with his right arm wrapped and what looks like a new tattoo.

The four-times Ballon d’Or winner is seen holding up a Mar del Plata club Aldosivi shirt, according to Marca, with his right arm exposed and a sizeable tattoo evident from the side.

Football fans across the world have taken to social media to try and guess what the new tattoo might be of and what its meaning is.

Messi is seemingly back in good spirits at Camp Nou, with the Argentina international scoring nine goals in seven games of late.

Earlier in the year there were rumblings of a fallout with Barcelona boss Luis Enrique, but the superstar has done his talking on the pitch in recent weeks.

Messi’s Instagram page does not give any insight into what the new tattoo might be, while the South American star looks set to feature against Athletic Bilbao in La Liga tomorrow.
