FC Barcelona | The Incredible legacy of Lionel Messi

The striker will pack his bags by not finally reconnecting with the Catalan team, where since his debut he has left his mark. The best player in the club’s history is leaving.

Since scoring his first goal for Albacete in May 2005, Lionel Messi has quickly won the love of FC Barcelona fans. This goal was important in achieving this League, the first of his 37 titles with the club, which has to go until the last century (1999) to see a great trophy without its captain so far.

This championship ended a five-year drought, and now many fear something similar. The culé team will have to learn to win without this player who really started to impress months after this goal, during the Joan Gamper Trophy against Juventus of Fabio Capello. The rivals will meet each other on Sunday, oddly enough.

A stellar record | Lionel Messi

The following season he was sidelined as a starter until his injury, being the key against Chelsea in the Champions League second round, which would elevate Ronaldinho. Soon the Argentine took over and after two years in white, the Treble arrived with Pep Guardiola in 2008-2009, already with him as a star so far, still decisive.

He has 37 collective titles, in addition to 6 Ballon d'Or. He is the league's historic top scorer, that of the Catalan club itself, and one of the best of all time. These 37 wounded with his squad were distributed as follows:

- 10 Leagues (2004/05, 2005/06, 2008/09, 2009/10, 2010/11, 2012/13, 2014/15, 2015/16, 2017/18 and 2018/19)

- 7 King's Cups (2008/09, 2011/12, 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2020/21)

- 4 Champions League (2005/06, 2008/09, 2010/11 and 2014/15)

- 8 Spanish Super Cups (2005/06, 2006/07, 2009/10, 2010/11, 2011/12, 2013/14, 2016/17, and 2018/19)

- 3 European Super Cups (2009/10, 2011/12, and 2015/16)

- 3 Club World Cups (2009/10, 2011/12, and 2015/16)

He is also the most awarded individual footballer with no less than six Ballon d'Or, one FIFA The Best, one FIFA World Player, six Golden Boots, four UEFA Best Player, seven Pichichi Trophy, and one Golden Boy, among others.

The inevitable doubts of divorce

We're starting to see how the news that wants to shed light on the forward's future is also happening, with PSG being the favorites for his signing. There was also talk of Manchester City where he could find Pep Guardiola and even an adventure in MLS.

Even the Old Boys of Newell, the other club of his loves, could tempt him. In any case, it will not be the same for him or for the Catalan club, which will now have to think about how to make up for his absence, which will necessarily be traumatic. Antoine Griezmann, Ansu Fati, Memphis Depay, or Pedri will now have the lights on.
