Pictures of Lionel Messi’s mansion give a fresh insight into his life of luxury since signing for Inter Miami – and it’s no wonder he never leaves the house.

The iconic forward bought the $10.75m (£8.45m) property in September with the help of real estate firm Team Simpkin, just a couple of months after signing for David Beckham’s MLS franchise.

His Fort Lauderdale estate includes 10 bedrooms, a VIP suite and two boat docks, providing Messi with ample room to entertain his teammates.

Living as part of a gated community at Bay Colony, Messi’s house is located on an island, with a swimming pool sitting on the edge of canals and looking out onto the Fort Lauderdale skyline.

The Argentina captain has confessed that he is yet to properly explore his new home of Miami, though, opting to spend most of his time away from the pitch at the house with his wife, Antonella Roccuzzo, and their three sons.

“No, the truth is that we don’t go out much either,” Messi revealed to Argentinian publication Infobae when quizzed about his lifestyle.

“We live in the area where the club is located and we have a short drive to Miami. We go out, we’ve gone out a couple of times, but I still don’t know it well.”

Messi, 36, is gearing up to help Argentina retain the Copa America this summer but will still not be far from home with the tournament being hosted in the USA.

In a quirk of fate, the team’s final group game against Peru will be held at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, with the same venue also hosting the final.

Inter Miami’s talisman will hope to become the first Argentina captain to win consecutive Copa Americas since Oscar Ruggeri in 1993. If the reigning world champions do continue their success on the international stage, Messi’s house will likely be the go-to destination for the team’s celebrations.

But well, we in the group have only one in Miami, which is the third, and then if we continue passing and God willing we reach the final, you won’t come back until the final.”

While neighbours may end up asking for Messi and co to keep the noise down if Argentina win the Copa America, his arrival has already worked out well for those within the gated community. Entrepreneur Patrick Bet-David has explained how the value of his property has sky-rocketed since Messi moved in nearby.
