There is a lot of controversy about Lionel Messi’s $50m mansion in Miami
One question remains as soccer legend Lionel Messi settles down with Inter Miami: where will he call home? Perhaps Messi, like fellow NBA great LeBron James, will settle into an extraterrestrial house.
The internet is buzzing over the concept home that architect Jorge Luis Veliz designed for Messi. Veliz’s idea, in typical fan manner, was heavily influenced by the soccer player himself. The unique M shape of Lionel Messi’s trademark emblem was the inspiration for the design of the Messi Mansion in Miami, as described by architect and Instagram user Veliz. This three-story estate is situated on a private, ship-shaped island that offers seclusion and convenience.
Some people on the internet are eager for Messi to move in right away, while others believe that the lavish mansion is out of character for Messi’s property holdings. “Amazing but Messi not the type of guy to have his name front and center in his home,” one user remarked. Another person remarked, “He doesn’t strike me as *this* flashy.” One more said it succinctly: “He’s too humble for this tho.”
But Messi is the one we can’t wait to hear from. A Miami house is rumored to have eluded the football player so far. But be assured, we’ll let you know as soon as we hear from him.
