"I'm don't ask for shirts, I usually swap them, but I asked Zidane once," Messi said in an interview with TyC Sports a few years ago.

"If there is an Argentine I swap it with him, but, unless someone asks me, I'm not asking anyone."

The game Messi referred to was a Clasico that was played at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, with Zidane wearing a shirt with the No.5 on his back.
