Barcelona legend Lionel Messi shows off enormous shirt haul

Lionel Messi received a Photoshop treatment, Francesco Totti receives a gift from Nike and more in The Sweeper.

Lionel Messi has been around the block a few times, scoring a cavalcade of goals, winning hundreds of games and lifting trophies galore over the years.

Indeed, the man himself took to Instagram to proudly show off his enormous hoard.

We honestly don't know what's more impressive here: the sheer number of jerseys on display or the fact that Messi had to have an entire wing of his house custom fitted to show them all off.

Truly amazing, on both counts.
