We all know Messi has been a record breaker. The Argentine maestro broke every single record there was to break at Barcelona and it looks like he is not yet done.

Joining PSG brings with it a new challenge for Messi. He has finally moved to a different league and has a chance to showcase his abilities in a different country.

2) Most goals and assists in a Ligue 1 season - Current record holder is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who had scored 50 goals, 38 out of those 50 goals came in the Ligue 1, which is also a record. On the other hand, Angel Di Maria currently holds the record of helping with the most assists (18) in a Ligue 1 season in the 2015/16 campaign.

3) Most goals in a Champions League season for PSG - In the 2013-14 season, Zlatan Ibrahimovic had scored 10 goals for PSG in the Champions League, which is the record Messi will try to eclips this season.
