Messi’s record-breaking club career in numbers

As Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday prepared to welcome Lionel Messi after a record-breaking spell at Barcelona, here is a look at some of the key numbers in the Argentine’s club career.

6: the number of Ballons d’Or, football’s most prestigious individual award, won by Messi since the start of his career (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2019), one more than his perennial rival, Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo.

35: the number of trophies Messi won in a Barcelona shirt. In detail, he has won four Champions Leagues, 10 Spanish championships, seven Copas del Rey, three European Super Cups, eight Spanish Super Cups and three Club World Cups.

50: the number of goals scored by Messi in La Liga in the 38 matches of the 2011-2012 season, a record. That season he scored a total of 73 (another record).

74.9: Messi’s net salary in millions of euros at Barcelona per season, according to Spanish daily El Mundo. In Paris, his salary would be around 40m euros, ($46.9m) according to the French press, which would put him in the same category as Neymar (36m euros), until now the highest paid player in the history of Ligue 1.

474: the number of goals scored by the ‘Pulga’ (flea) in La Liga in 520 games played with Barcelona (0.91 goals per game), the most in La Liga history ahead of Ronaldo. (AFP)
