And, according to Croat Rakitic, 30-year-old Messi - who is a five-time Ballon d'Or victor - has proved he is top of the tree when the greatest of all time debate is discussed.

"I hope that all the players will have the same form that they are in at the moment", Tapia told TYC Sports.

The coach did leave Messi out of the starting line-up for the first time in the league against Espanyol on February 4 but threw the Argentine on as a substitute to help salvage a 1-1 draw.

With only three months to go for the prestigious quadrennial event, Argentina seem to be concerned about Messi's workload at Barcelona.

Tapia's comments come at a time when Messi has been in fine form for treble-chasing Barcelona.

"Sergio Aguero's in rude health and Lionel Messi is always good".

Antonio Conte's Chelsea face the games of their season as the Blues face Barcelona in the Champions League. "We have spoken to Messi about taking care of himself and about playing less for FC Barcelona".

"For Messi, we had a good discussion with the hierarchy at Barcelona and the coaching staff".

Meanwhile, Messi is also key to Barcelona's plans of winning the UEFA Champions League title after a two-year gap.

Argentina captain Messi, the leading scorer in La Liga with 20 goals, scored a hat trick in the 3-1 win over Ecuador that sealed his country's World Cup place.

Messi's side face Chelsea in the Champions League next week and it looks like the Blues will have their work cut out if the five-time Ballon D'or victor is in this kind of form.

Tapia added the AFA is considering the possibility of a friendly against Catalonia in Barcelona in early June before their World Cup opener against Iceland on June 16. "I think he is strong at the moment and we thought it was important for him to help us early on this season", Valverde had said ahead of Barcelona's league clash against Atletico in October past year.
