Messi was in the headlines earlier in the day when leaked details of his eye-watering contract emerged.
A report by El Mundo claimed the deal Messi signed in 2017, which expires at the end of this season, is worth more than €555million.
The six-time Ballon d'Or winner scored his first goal for Barca in May 2005 at the age of 17, beautifully lobbing Albacete goalkeeper Raul Valbuena.
He has gone on to become far and away the club's record scorer, overtaking Cesar Rodriguez's previous mark of 232 in 2012.
