FC Barcelona Plan To Re-Sign Messi, Puyol, Xavi In Coming Weeks
Published December 19, 2012
TOP FORM: The BBC wrote Messi has been in the "best goal-scoring form of his career" in '12 and surpassed Gerd Müller's 40-year-old record of 85 goals scored in a calendar year with a brace in a 2-1 win over Real Betis on Dec. 9. Messi took his goal scoring total for the year to 90 on Sunday with another two goals as Barcelona defeated Atletico Madrid 4-1. Xavi is the "longest-serving Barcelona player of the three," having made his debut in '98. He holds the record for the most appearances with the club with 651 (BBC, 12/18).
