When Barcelona signed the young Argentine forward in 2004, the world had no idea he would become one of the greatest players to wear the iconic red and blue shirt.
During his astonishing career at Barcelona, Messi scored an astonishing 672 goals in 778 appearances, breaking numerous records during his time at the Camp Nou.
He scored his first goal in 2005 against Albacete in a packed Camp Nou.
The Argentine’s last goal for the Spanish giants came in a 2-1 defeat to Celta Vigo at home.
But what he had done between those two goals will live in the minds of football fans forever.
The Argentine picked up a club record 35 trophies for Barcelona, while picking up the prestigious Ballon d’Or seven times.
