The 31-year-old has enjoyed a trophy-laden spell with the LaLiga giants since making his top-flight debut for the club in 2004.
In that time, Messi has proved to be indispensable for the Spanish giants, netting 402 goals and assisting a further 163 strikes in 437 LaLiga games, highlighting part of his immense individual contribution to Barcelona's success on the domestic front.
Over the years, the Argentine has created a telepathic-like understanding with a number of his teammates, resulting in some undeniably brilliant partnerships.
At the summit of the list of players who have set up the most goals for Messi is former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan talisman joined Barcelona in July 2014 and has since directly provided 46 assists for the 31-year-old, a figure that is likely to rise given that they are likely to continue playing alongside each other at the club for a short while yet.
Barcelona and Spain legend Andres Iniesta, who now plays for Japanese club Vissel Kobe, is a close second, having racked up a staggering 44 assists for Messi.
Paris Saint-Germain defender and former Blaugrana star Dani Alves completes the podium with 42 assists for Messi in the eight years he was a Barcelona player.
The top five, according to Marca, is completed by former Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez and current first-choice Barca left-back Jordi Alba.
