The Catalan giants took on Real Valladolid on Monday night, but there was a special moment just before the clash as Messi was handed a unique jersey for breaking the Blaugrana's all-time appearance record. 

Xavi Hernandez is the player who previously held the record with 767 appearances for the Spanish giants, but he was overtaken by his ex-teammate when Barca took on Real Sociedad in LaLiga before the latest international break. 

After being showered with tributes by some of his former teammates in recent weeks, Messi was handed a framed commemorative shirt for becoming Barcelona's most-capped player in history on Monday, a moment he shared with his wife and kids. 

'Messi Said I Elbowed Him, But It Wasn't Me'

Ronald Koeman's men went within a point of league leaders Atletico Madrid with their 1-0 win over Valladolid, thanks to a stoppage-time winner from France international Ousmane Dembele. 

Messi is the highest-paid player in world football, but who comes close to him? See below!
