By Keegan Kruger - Jun 27, 2017 07:15 PM @KeeganKruger

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has racked up many individual records in his career, which means he will almost certainly go down in history as one the greatest footballers ever. According to Squawka, here are 10 milestones the Argentine star could still own one day.

Click through the gallery above to see who the current holders of the 10 records are.

The 30-year-old has had his ups and downs at the Catalan club, but has enjoyed tremendous success with the side ever since he broke into the senior team when he was just 17 years old. 

Messi has won the Ballon d'Or a record five times, and was also named UEFA's Best Player in Europe on three occasions, along with a whole host of other awards.

However, here are 10 records Messi has not broken just yet, according to Squawka:

1. Make the most Barcelona appearances – Xavi (767 appearances)

2. Net the most goals for Barcelona in the Copa del Rey – Josep Samitier (65 goals)

3. Become the most capped Argentine – Javier Zanetti (143 caps)

4. Score the most goals for Argentina at a World Cup finals – Gabriel Batistuta (10 goals)

5. Accumulate the most goals in the Champions League – Cristiano Ronaldo (105 goals)

6. Ended up with the most career goals in Europe's top six leagues – Cristiano Ronaldo (372 goals)

7. Score the most La Liga hat-tricks – Cristiano Ronaldo (32 hat-tricks)

8. Hold the longest La Liga goal streak in consecutive home matches – Mariano Martin (scored in 18 consecutive home matches)

9. Be the Barcelona player with the most Champions League final appearances – Andres Iniesta (four)

10. Have the most appearances in El Clasico – Manuel Sanchis (43 appearances)

Chelsea's Most Expensive All-Time XI

The Argentine has made 585 appearances for the Blaugrana, scoring 510 goals and assisting 231 further strikes along the way.

@Nick#10 Messi was 17 when he made his proff debut, I doubt there's anyone who doesn't know he was the youngest.

@Nick#10 what do you mean CR7 didn't deserve playing in the final? The guy got injured IN the final and reverted to coaching the team. If you had your facts ryt you'd know what the Portugal players, on and off the field, said about CR7 after the final. Those are the people we tend to listen coz they were there with him, they saw and heard what he did first hand. Not you, blinded by ignorance and jealousy for the King CR7 and love for Messiah. Messi is a great player buut that doesn't make CR7 a bad player, hell he got records in Spain Messi ain't got and Messi has been there for longer.

@WT_Mashigo, is that the reason the whole country cried for him ??? The fact is....Argentina is aware that without Messi are nothing more than Portugal feeling the same about Cristiano.
