Football icon Lionel Messi cements his American ambitions, acquiring a $10.8 million Fort Lauderdale estate to complement his blockbuster MLS move. The Argentinian legend’s luxe 8-bedroom bayfront compound provides an fitting home base between lighting up pitches for Inter Miami.
The 10,400-square-foot grounds exude regal glamour. Sparkling chandeliers crown 27-foot domed ceilings and expansive spaces dressed in cream and black palettes. An Italian kitchen with marble countertops anchors the home, while each lavish suite indulges guests.
Outdoors, two docks await Messi’s aquatic toys behind manicured lawns. Nearby, the pool, spa and entertainer’s patio capitalize on 170 feet of water frontage, offering luxury living between trainings and matches.
In Miami, Messi continues an iconic career, his World Cup triumph with Argentina now immortalized. Off-field, this $10.8 million estate solidifies his life as one of America’s superstars. For Messi, known for humble lifestyles amid soccer stardom, the extravagant home signals a new phase chasing championships stateside.
Between raising Inter Miami’s profile and South Florida’s prices, Messi’s ambitions show no limits. If anyone can shoot MLS into the big leagues, it’s the G.O.A.T. himself. Now Messi resides in a mansion befitting his mythic status. Here, a legend finds the regal refuge a gladiator requires when the crowds’ cheers fade.
