Lionel Messi is the greatest player of his generation - perhaps of all time. The talisman of a Barcelona team that has dominated Spanish and European football, and the winner of the FIFA Ballon d'Or an unprecedented four times in a row, he is fast, elusive and mesmerising. Luca Caioli draws on numerous exclusive testimonies to tell Messi's story, including his parents and extended family, his coaches, those who have played alongside him and even Messi himself. Messi is a revealing portrait of football's most exciting star, updated to include the electrifying 2012/13 season in which the humble young sportsman rewrote the record books to the delight of fans across the globe.
