Lionel Messi replica jerseys are everywhere. The #10 jersey for his club, Barcelona, was the biggest seller in 2015 but it is his Argentina #10 jersey that is catching the attention of fans around the globe.
A social media search is on for the boy wearing his jersey made with a blue and white striped plastic bag with hand scrawled ‘Messi’ ‘10’ appeared last week.

And there are not many leads helping to find the boy. An early post with the boy on Fanatik, a Turkish sports website, stated ‘A young boy in Iraq made a Lionel Messi shirt from a plastic bag.’ It was picked up by other sites on social media and even made it to the Leo Messi twitter handle.
And there are even rumors that Messi is searching for the boy and plans to give him an authentic Messi jersey. Although these are not confirmed.
We got DM from Leo’s team. They want to know who this kid is so that Leo can arrange something for him. RT & spread https://t.co/MylJyDOpsu
