Messi joined an illustrious club as a result, but has to score another 143 goals to overtake Pele, who netted 643 goals during his time at Santos, as explained by The Guardian.

German legend Gerd Muller follows with 566 goals for Bayern Munich, ahead of Sporting Lisbon legend Fernando Peyroteo, who scored 544 goals for the Portuguese giants.

Josef Bican (534 goals for Slavia Prague), Jimmy McGory (522 goals for Celtic), Jimmy Jones (517 goals for Glenavon) and Uwe Seeler (507 goals for Hamburg) are the other names on the list.

The Argentine took his tally to 31 league goals for the season with his brace against Los Blancos, and seems likely to lift the Pichichi trophy, with Luis Suarez following in second spot with 24 goals and Cristiano Ronaldo having scored 19 league goals so far. - Online Sources
