RIGHT, I've seen some ridiculous prices in my time but here's one that takes the biscuit.

Ladbrokes have put out some Lionel Messi specials after the Barcelona star ripped up the record books again on Saturday with his four-goal haul against Espanyol.

Messi has hit 72 goals in all competitions this season and Ladbrokes make him 10-11 to beat that mark.

And it's a similarly short at 8-11 that he breaks his La Liga tally of 50 goals. But the crazy price is 5-1 for him to score 100 goals or more.

Come on guys that's not going to happen and Ladbrokes know it. Spokesman Alex Donohue said: “Messi's star continues to dazzle and we're not taking any chances next season. Barring injury he looks a shoo-in to break yet more records.”

He may do but there's more chance of Motherwell winning the Champions League than Messi has of reaching the century.

    you never know hes a magician

    I was wondering if you knew anything about a man called paulino alcantara who signed for barcelona in 1912 and in 357 games he scored 369 goals would this not make him all time leading scorer and not messi

      Danny, I’ve heard of Alcantara. He is Barca’s all-time leading scorer if you include friendlies and he played a lot of them during WW1. Messi holds the record if you count competitive games only.

    Alex Donohue needs his head examined…

      Guys, I don’t know anyone who would even consider that 5-1. Add a zero and I’d still not be interested.
