Messi would not be the first player to spend his entire career at Barca – he would follow in the footsteps of former club captain Carles Puyol, who made more than 500 appearances for the Catalan giants between 1999 and 2014.

Manchester United's famous "Class of 1992" also produced some of the club's greatest-ever players, and the likes of Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes all went on to spend their entire careers at Old Trafford, although the latter did play one amateur game for Royton Town.

The Red Devils' Premier League rivals Liverpool also boast a famous one-club wonder in the form of Jamie Carragher, who graduated from the club's academy in 1996 and went on to play 737 times for the reigning European champions.

Italy has produced some of the world's most loyal footballers over the years, with former AC Milan captain Paolo Maldini and AS Roma legend Francesco Totti among the game's famous one-club wonders.
