Barcelona stars Cesc Fabregas, Neymar, Dani Alves and Andres Iniesta are chasing the treble in double denim - but Lionel Messi is nowhere to be found

Catalan club have signed a four-year sponsorship with denim brand

Chasing the treble, in double denim.

No, it is not a Status Quo tribute act - here are Cesc Fabregas, Gerard Pique, Neymar, Dani Alves and Andres Iniesta of Barcelona celebrating the club's partnership with Replay denim.

But Argentine maestro Lionel Messi, who channelled his inner Ron Burgundy with his garish red suit at the Ballon d'Or awards, is nowhere to be found.

The denim brand have revealed that they have joined up with the Spanish champions as an official sponsor for the next four years, and claim they have created both "formal outfits as well a smart casual line" for sale and for the players and staff at the Nou Camp to wear.

Below is the all-denim suit which the players will be sporting when they travel over to Manchester next month for the first of their two Champions League Last 16 ties against Manchester City. They will hope their defence stays at sturdy as their apparel, against a team which have averaged four goals a game at home this season.
