The Camp Nou outfit are looking to add even more silverware to their trophy cabinet and expect Lionel Messi to play a major role in new successes

Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu is confident the club have what it takes to win six major trophies in 2015.

The Camp Nou side are already halfway through following their Champions League, La Liga and Copa del Rey success in 2014-15 and can make it six pieces of silverware in one calendar year if they also claim the European Supercup, Spanish Supercup and Club World Cup.

Barca last won the sextuple in 2009 under Pep Guardiola, but Bartomeu is hopeful they can repeat the feat under Luis Enrique this year.

“We won three trophies last season, so there are six cups to win this year. It would be a dream year,” Bartomeu told ESPN.

“Hopefully, we can start thinking about winning six trophies each season. You need a competitive team for that, but I think we have it all to do just that with the additions we have made.”

Bartomeu then went on to discuss Lionel Messi’s decision to return from his holiday four days early in order to join his team-mates for pre-season duty and hailed the Argentine’s hunger for success.

“Messi is raring to go again. He is eager to continue to make history with Barcelona. He is the best player in Barca’s history and world football.

“Messi and his team-mates have a big challenge ahead of them, but everybody is excited about the chance to win six trophies. I noticed that everybody is talking about it and that is very inspiring.
