You replace Alcácer, you get his number!

Barcelona did no business on Transfer Deadline Day, but they were busy the day before, signing Paco Alcácer from Valencia and then sending Munir El-Haddadi on loan to Valencia, which is not part of the Alcácer deal but really is if you think about it.

Anyway, we're still waiting to buy Alcácer's shirt since he doesn't have a number yet, but we already know Munir's shirt at Valencia. And SURPRISE!!!

That's right, Munir will get to wear Paco Alcácer's Number 9 for the duration of his tenure at the club. The La Masia product was a big-time goalscorer in the Academy, and while he struggled a bit for Barça in his debut season at the first team, he became a very good scorer off the bench in the last campaign, and Munir arrives with confidence in Valencia to wear the striker shirt and probably be the starter for the side in that position.

Good luck with that #9, Munir! Don't score on us, but go score them goals!
