And Messi, whose Barcelona contract expires at the end of June, has been in excellent form for his country at the tournament.

Messi turned his performance up a notch at the Copa America with a brace and assist against Bolivia at the Arena Pantanal in Cuiaba, Brazil.

The Barcelona superstar produced a stunning chip to Alejandro Gomez, who fired Argentina into the lead in the 6th minute.

Messi doubled Argentina's lead in the 33rd minute after effortlessly converting from the spot-kick.

Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero then picked out his Argentina teammate with a sublime chipped through-ball.

Bolivia goalkeeper Carlos Lampe came charging out to the edge of the box, only for Messi to pull off a sensational first-time chip as the ball landed in the back of the empty net.

Erwin Saavedra pulled one back for Bolivia in the second half, but Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez scored minutes later to seal a 4-1 win for Argentina.

Now, one fan produced a compilation to showcase Messi's brilliance against Bolivia, with one supporter saying the video "could be career highlight for other players."

One Twitter user posted: "A 34-year-old man playing like he's 20. This isn't normal. I know my [GOAT]."

Someone else said: "This could be career highlight for other players."

While a third tweeted: "Hard to believe this guy is a free agent in two days! Someone sign him up!"

A fourth wrote: "We know Messi's in the mood when he switches play for fun."

And a fifth added: "The GOAT himself doing what he does best."

Argentina topped Group A after three wins and a draw, with Uruguay and Paraguay also qualifying for the Copa America knockout stages.

Messi and Co will now face Ecuador in the quarter-finals on 4th July at the Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico.
