Barcelona and Argentina superstar Lionel Messi has shown off his incredible shirt collection.

The 29-year-old, five-time Ballon d’Or winner posted on Instagram a picture of himself and his son, Thiago, with the astonishing assemblage at his home in Spain.

Taking pride of price at the centre of it all is his World Cup Final shirt from 2014, where Argentina were beaten 1-0 by Germany in Rio de Janeiro.

A host of compatriots shirts are on display, including Manuel Lanzini, Sergio Aguero, Oscar Ustari, Alejandro Dominguez and Messi’s idol, Pablo Aimar, as well as a who’s who of European greats, such as Thierry Henry and Pavel Nedved.

There’s also space for two Real Madrid legends: Iker Casillas and Raul.

One of the most interesting shirts on display however is that of former Aldosivi midfielder Hernan Lamberti (bottom left, green and yellow stripes).

The 33-year-old sent a shirt to the Barcelona star’s home in Catalunya, via a mutual acquaintance: Tattoo artist Roberto Lopez.

“It is not every day that the best in the world accepts such a gift,” said Lamberti in 2015.

The Argentine ace is approaching the final 12 months of his deal at Camp Nou, but is in talks over a contract extension.

And club vice-president Jordi Mestre is hoping to have Messi’s future nailed down shortly in a deal that could be worth a staggering £25million-a-year.

“Lionel Messi’s contract renewal is on track,” he told TV3. “I’d say we’ve hit the final straight and in a few weeks there will be news. I cannot give an exact date, but it won’t be long. The truth is everything looks very good.

“Everything will end up well. If they’re saying there are problems [with the talks] in Madrid, then I’m delighted to be able to contradict them.”
