Well, that’s the talk of the town. And there are football gurus confirming the query for you.

It is the La Liga chief, Tebas himself, who thinks that the FC Barcelona superstar has no match in this era, despite being a Real Madrid fan. He also adds that those who think differently have no understanding of the game of Football. (Source: SportsKeeda)

According to Tebas, Leo is way ahead of the Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo. Messi winning his fifth Golden Shoe is a twofold feat –one, he is the owner of the highest number of Golden Shoes, and two, he broke Ronaldo’s record, who was leading until now with four Shoes in his bag.

Messi has won the Golden Shoes in 2010, 2012, 2013, 2017 and 2018, while Ronaldo did so in 2008, 2011, 2013 (shared with Luis Suarez) and 2015. (Source: Soccerladuma)

Just have a look at these spectacular feats of Messi:

Along with being an exceptional footballer, he is a good human too. Being as humble and down to earth as he could, while receiving the Golden Shoe, he said, "I did not expect all of this when I started….My dream was to be a professional, to be able to succeed in football.”

Messi right now is the top goal scorer in Europe in 2017-18 with 34 goals in 36 La Liga appearances. In this term too, he has scored 14 goals so far, hence becoming a strong contender for another Golden Shoe. Wow!

He is now the first player other than Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi to be voted best player of the year by international football journalists since the Brazilian Kaka won the Ballon d'Or in 2007. Whether or not this is the end of the Messi-Ronaldo era remains to be seen though.
