How Does Lionel Messi Spend His Millions?

Mansion In Barcelona

Lionel Messi is from Argentina, but he lived in Spain for most of his life. As we know, he was the greatest star of Barcelona FC, so it makes sense he invests some of his millions buying a house there.

Messi has a $7,000,000 mansion in Castelldefels, where he lived with his wife and two children. The terrace has a privileged view of the Catalan hills and the Mediterranean Sea. Messi and his family also have a private theatre, a gym, swimming pool and spa available at any time they want at home.

In Paris, Messi and his family have already found a home to live in, with it situated in the very exclusive area, Neuilly-Sur-Seine.

His neighbours will be Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes, and he will have to pay 20,000 euros per month to rent the property.

Car Collection & Jet

Messi is a massive petrol head at heart. He boasts an impressive car collection worth over $30 million.

He was once even rumoured to have bought a 1957 Ferrari 335 Spider Scaglietti, tagged as the “world’s most expensive car”, for roughly US$37 million at auction.

He also has a rare Pagani Zonda, which is worth $1,850,000, a Maserati Gran Turismo MC stradale, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Vogue, Ferrari 430 Spider, Mercedes sls amg, and Audi R8 Spyder.

And on days when fast cars just won’t do? Messi can opt to transport his family via his US$15 million 2004 Gulfstream V private jet. It’s known for the No 10 on its tail and the names of his wife Antonella and their children – Thiago, Ciro and Mateo – on the plane’s steps.

Vacation

When not on the pitch playing, Messi prefers to enjoy quality time with his family, either at home or at various destinations.

For example, after guiding Argentina to Copa America win last year, Messi went on a vacation in Florida with his family. He preferred to rent a luxurious beachfront mansion in Key Biscayne, Florida that cost $10,000 per night.

Other places Messi has vacationed before include Ibiza and Qatar.

Investments.

Away from luxury, Messi is an astute businessman. The Argentine owns commercial properties in Spain. He purchased a $36 million hotel called the MiM Sitges in Barcelona. It sits almost right on the beach and offers four-star luxury to tourists, with amenities such as a rooftop bar, sauna, and Mediterranean Sea views.

He also launched his own clothing line and opened his first retail outlet, the Messi Store, in 2019 in Barcelona.

Charity Work

Messi has his own organisation, the Leo Messi Foundation, which he asked for donations to instead of wedding gifts when he married long-term partner Antonella Roccuzzo.

The initiatives Messi backs are generally related to vulnerable children and their healthcare, and he was appointed an ambassador for Unicef in 2010 having worked with them since 2004.
