Four-time FIFA Ballon d’Or winner Lionelo Messi is never really out of the football headlines. More recently though rumours are spreading that Messi will be leaving Barcelona CF. Lionel Messi joined the Spanish club in 2004 and has made 294 appearances with a total of 258 goals.

After rumours strengthened of Lionel Messi leaving Barcelona, prices like £500 Million started to spread the internet. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but he would undoubtedly be the biggest signing of all time.

Lionel Messi is the only player to top-score in four consecutive Champions League seasons, and also holds the record for the most hat-tricks scored in the competition with five. In March 2012 he made Champions League history by becoming the first player to score five goals in one match. He also matched José Altafini‘s record of 14 goals in a single Champions League season.

In the 2011–12 season, Messi set the European record for most goals scored in a season with 73 goals, set the goalscoring record in a single La Liga season with 50 goals, and became the first player ever to score and assist in six different official competitions in one season. In February 2013 he scored his 300th Barcelona goal.

In 2013Lionel Messi scored in his 19th consecutive La Liga game, becoming the first footballer in history to net in consecutive matches against every team in a professional football league. He extended his record scoring streak to 21 consecutive league matches. In March 2014, with a hat-trick against Real Madrid, Lionel Messi became the player with the most goals and most hat-tricks in the history of El Clásico.

In October 2014, Messi, at 27, became the youngest player to score 250 goals in La Liga. In November 2014, Messi scored a hat-trick against Sevilla to reach 253 La Liga goals, becoming the all-time top scorer in La Liga. Later that month, he scored his 74th Champions League goal to become its all-time leading scorer.

To lose Lionel Messi during the peak of his career would obviously be a terrible hit for Barcelona.
