Lionel Messi will make his return to Spain on today when Paris Saint-Germain takes on Real Madrid at the Bernabeu, the site of some of his most memorable performances before moving to Paris.
However, at the age of 34, a player who dominated the Sport for over a decade alongside Christiano Ronaldo returns to the Spanish captain despite only scoring seven times in 24 appearances for PSG this season.
At the Parc des Princes, Kylian Mbappe scored a fantastic goal to give the French giants a first-leg advantage back at the Parc des Princes, and the 23-year-old isn't the only player vying to replace Messi and Ronaldo at the top of the game.
Sky Sports analyst Jamie Carragher say " I believe we are currently in that period." "Messi won the last Ballon d'or, but I believe that is the last time we see Messi or Ronaldo win the award."
