Hi Andei.. Thanks for visiting and asking. Although, to be honest, I have a problem with identifying cat breeds just from appearance. Most if not all people would have the same problem including experts, because it is not possible to be certain from appearance alone.
If a cat is a fine specimen of a purebred cat then you can say with some conviction that the cat is a certain breed. But you can't say with certainty that a cat is a certain breed just by looking at it.
Appearance alone is not enough. You need evidence in the form of pedigree. These are records kept at cat associations if the cat is registered with the association.
Sometimes purebred cats don't have documented pedigrees. It is quite complicated.
So, about your cat. He is a long haired grey cat that looks like a British Longhair. That is about all you can say, I am afraid.
He may be purebred. He could be a traditional Persian as they are more common that British longhaired cats and he looks like a trad Persian to me. In fact he does have the general feel of a purebred cat. He looks a bit special. But he could still be mixed breed.
But you cannot say without some form of evidence other than appearance - sorry.

He looks absolutely gorgeous. I wish he were my cat companion.
