Is Messi greater than Pele or Maradona?

Yes, he is.

On pure ability Messi is better than both. On the impact they had on the game and the change they brought to football and how we see it, no player, maybe Johan Cruyff aside, has had the impact on the game that Pele had

Messi is brilliant playing for a Barca team that is usually dominating their opponents.
He looks distinctively average in an average Argentina team.
You could say the same about Pele playing for Brazil.
So and it pains me to say it, Maradona stood out in all teams he played for, so in that basis , he would win.

No, he's close but not better.

In my opinion,Pele will take some beating and still rate him the best ever. Maradona is 2nd Messi will be 3rd

No, both Pele and Maradona are on their own class.

I wouldn't say so no. Hard to say now though, we'll have to see how history remembers him.
