Perseverance in the form of the Argentinean in recent years and the number of personal and club achievements led to a number of specialists to compare him with the greatest in history - Pele, Diego Maradona, Johan Cruyff and others.

"I do not care what is my place in the football history. At least I don't think about it now. I just want to get consistently better player and to help my team," said Messi more.

At the beginning of the year it was said that the Argentine wants to leave because te no longer felt so well in Barcelona. A little later, however, the player re-signed and put an end to speculation about his future.
