The Barcelona forward may not ask to swap jerseys very often, but he has acquired match tributes from a number of iconic figures down the years

The mercurial Argentine is, however, a popular choice for opponents when the time comes for a post-match trade.

That has ensured that while he does not go looking for mementos, Messi has acquired a star-studded collection of jerseys down the years.

Unsurprisingly, club colleagues and fellow countrymen figure prominently in his haul, with a few Real Madrid shirts thrown into the mix as well despite their intense rivalry with Barca.

Angel Di Maria, Iker Casillas and Raul can all be seen to have handed Messi a shirt at some stage in their career.

Camp Nou team-mates past and present - such as Luis Suarez, Cesc Fabregas, Gerard Pique, Dani Alves and Lucas Digne - can also be spotted, along with Premier League stars Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure.

West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini also makes the wall of fame, as a fellow Argentine gracing the top of the game.

It is, however, Messi’s own jerseys that take centre stage, with his shirt from the 2014 World Cup final figuring prominently despite that occasion marking a rare low point in the 29-year-old’s career.
