Lionel Messi is joining Inter Miami from Paris Saint-Germain. Last year’s World Cup champion rejected a $2.5bn move to Saudi Arabia and a return to Barcelona.
According to sources, the forward and his wife Antonela Roccuzzo did not want to live in Saudi Arabia, so they went to the US. Messi announced his move this week, but he has had a Miami apartment for years.
The World Cup winner bought a Porsche Design Tower apartment in Miami in 2019, according to Cadena Ser. The forward wants his three children to go to high school in America before college, so the Porsche Design Tower, erected in 2017, is appropriate for the family.
The 60-story tower between Bal Harbour and Aventura is 25 minutes from Inter Miami Stadium. Residents can see Miami Beach, which is just seconds away. Residents can park their cars in their suites using the building’s car elevators.
