The Argentine superstar – who signed a two-and-a-half-year contract worth $50-60 million per season – has been looking to expand his property portfolio since joining Inter Miami this summer.
He already owned a $9 million luxury apartment in Miami, but was recently spotted house hunting with his wife Antonela Roccuzzo and their son Thiago in the Boca Raton area.
But Messi has now signed on to a new 10,500 square foot property within the gated community of Bay Colony, one of the floating neighborhoods north of Fort Lauderdale.
This stunning home is located right next to the waterfront, just a 15-minute drive from Miami’s DRV PNK Stadium and training base.
