Argentine FIFA World Cup-winning legend Lionel Messi has reportedly purchased a waterfront mansion in Fort Lauderdale’s Bay Colony, Florida, in the United States, for more than $10 million.
Messi is currently serving for the MLS side Inter Miami, where he joined as a free transfer last July. After viewing some valuable properties, he has reportedly decided to buy that mansion.
The mansion is just five miles away from Inter Miami's Drive Pink Stadium. Meanwhile, it is also close to the training venue in Fort Lauderdale. It was originally built in 1988 and expanded in 2000.
According to The Real Deal, Messi and his wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, own the $10.8 million, 10,500-square-foot mansion, which has eight bedrooms, including a 1,600-square-foot primary suite.
According to a 2022 listing, the mansion reportedly has 170 feet of water frontage with two docks, a waterfront pool, a gym/spa room, and an Italian kitchen.
The Real Deal report also suggests that Messi has already bought three costly condos in Sunny Isles Beach, United States, including one at Porsche Design Tower.
Messi's arrival in the United States is crucial for the leading Northern American country, which has the leading hosting rights for the FIFA World Cup 2026 with Canada and Mexico.
