Lionel Messi is a seven-time Ballon d’Or winner who plays for Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 and is a Barcelona and Argentina legend.
Under this tag will be every piece of news relating to Lionel Messi. That includes everything from a man of the match performance to any injuries. As well as that, we will have contract news and any transfer talk about the man himself right here.
Messi originally started with Newell’s Old Boys but moved to the La Masia academy at Barcelona at the age of 13.
He then made his way through the ranks, playing for Barcelona C, then Barcelona B before making it into the first team squad.
He has since scored over 550 goals in just over 660 appearances for the club, breaking records left, right and centre.
He has the most goals in La Liga history, a La Liga season (50), a club football season in Europe (73), a calendar year (91) and in El Clasico matches.
Since his professional debut, Barcelona have won nine La Liga titles, six Copa del Reys and four Champions Leagues among other trophies.
In 2021, he transferred to Paris Saint-Germain, winning Ligue 1 in his debut season and then the Trophee des Champions.
Individually, he has five Ballon d’Ors, a joint record. He also won the Golden Ball at both the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2015 Copa America.
Internationally, it has not quite been the same, as Argentina have failed to win a trophy with Messi at the helm. However, he is the country’s record goal-scorer, and has played over 125 times for the national side.
