Lionel Messi’s total number of goals has kept going up in 2023, as the 35-year-old has been a key part of PSG’s defence of the Ligue 1 title.

The Argentine star will have to make a big decision about his future this summer. His deal with PSG runs out in June, and Barcelona, Al Hilal, and Inter Miami are all trying to get him to join them.

But even though nobody knows what will happen, there is no question that Messi has been great in front of the goal for the last year.

His rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo has changed since Ronaldo moved to Al Nassr in 2023, but both players will still be trying to score more goals than the other before they quit.

After a quiet first season in Paris, Messi got back on track during the 2022–2023 season. He had to work hard to get used to a new club after spending 20 years with Barcelona.

He has scored a lot of goals over the course of his career. For example, he scored more than 50 goals in six of his seasons with Catalonia, giving him a club record of 703 goals and a total of 805 goals, including the ones he scored for Argentina.

The Messi vs. Ronaldo feud has had an effect on every part of football for the last 20 years, with each player claiming to be the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) of the sport.

But the final fight of their careers might be over who has scored the most goals in men’s football history. In 2022, the two of them pulled away from Pele, who had been in the lead.

Messi has scored 844 goals, while Ronaldo has scored 890. This is based on all official senior level competitive matches they have played, including senior international football with their respective national teams.

Ronaldo is under contract with Al Nassr until 2025, and Messi is not likely to end his career in the next 12 months.

Both Messi and Ronaldo want to keep playing for Argentina and Portugal. At the start of 2023, Messi will join Ronaldo in the club of players who have scored 100 or more goals for their national teams.

Messi needs to catch up to Ronaldo, and the two-and-a-half-year age gap doesn’t seem to matter, since Ronaldo has hinted that he might play on past his 40th birthday.
