The Argentine was given permission to miss the final LaLiga game of the season against Eibar on Saturday evening.

Antoine Griezmann got the game's only goal on the night as the Catalan giants secured a third-place finish in Ronald Koeman's debut campaign in charge.

With the season now concluded, Messi was officially confirmed as the Golden Boot winner with 30 goals, seven ahead of Karim Benzema and Gerard Moreno.

In doing so, the Argentine becomes the first player in LaLiga history to win the Golden Boot in five straight seasons, according to Squawka.

Messi will now turn his attention to the Copa America next month with Argentine, but his future with the Catalan giants is yet to be confirmed with his contract expiring next month.

While the team did disappoint in LaLiga and the UEFA Champions League, they did walk away with the Copa del Rey title last month.

Here is where Messi ranks among the highest-paid athletes in the world in 2021, according to Forbes!
