Barcelona and Argentina star Lionel Messi was awarded his fifth Ballon d'Or on Monday, but said he doesn't think much about who is the best.

Messi, 28, had finished behind long-time rival Cristiano Ronaldo in both 2013 and 2014, but was a clear winner of FIFA's top individual honour for a record fifth time in his career.

Barcelona's leading goal scorer Lionel Messi would be a likely candidate to close out his career at River Plate, club president Rodolfo D'Onofrio told Spanish daily AS.

Four-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi had a brief one-week trial with the Argentine club's youth division when he was 12 back in 2000, and D'Onofrio insists contractual issues with Messi's home club of Newell's Old Boys were the only obstacle that kept the forward from switching to the Buenos Aires giant as a youngster.
