Real Madrid have been one of the finest clubs in Europe. The Los Blancos have been the most successful side in the European circuit, as they were the champions of the UEFA Champions League for the record 15th time on June 1st after beating Borussia Dortmund in the final. There are no clubs that come close to the Spanish side while winning the UCL. They have added more firepower in the next season as they signed Kylian Mbappe. 

The club has been one of the most dominant sides in recent years and against the odds have performed really well. Former FC Barcelona captain Lionel Messi also has dropped his comments about the team against whom he always had the better off during his time at the Catalonian club. The Argentine captain scored his first club hat trick against the Spanish side announcing himself at the biggest stage of football. 

The 36-year-old forward has been the highest goal scorer in the El Clasico finding the net 26 times in the big fixture during a glittering career with Barcelona. This included 18 goals in La Liga matches, six in the Supercopa and two in the Champions League. At the present moment surpassing him in terms of the El Clasico record is looking very diminishing. 

If we’re talking results, it’s Real Madrid: Lionel Messi

Messi during an interview with Infobae has dropped his comment on the best team in the world right now. As the forward believes Madrid is the team that is the best in the world at the moment. He explained, "If we’re talking results, it’s Real Madrid. If we’re talking playing style, I personally like Guardiola’s Manchester City a lot and I believe that every team he coaches will be special. Playing style, Manchester City are the best. Results, it’s Real Madrid." 

LM 10 also mentioned his personal best team in playing which is Manchester City. He likes Pep Guardiola's playing style as under the Spanish manager for four years during his spell at Barcelona and won the sextuple for the club and became the first manager to do so.
