He may be contemplating international retirement, but Lionel Messi is certainly living the life of luxury in his swanky pad in Bellamar.
The 31-year-old is debating whether to hang up his boots for Argentina after the South American nation crashed out of the World Cup at the last-16.
And while Messi comes to a decision, he can relax in his incredible mansion in the exclusive suburb of Castelldefels.
Such was the need for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to have his own peace and quiet, team-mate Ivan Rakitic revealed how the Barcelona captain bought his neighbours house.
Situated just 12 miles away from the Nou Camp, Messi’s home boasts a small football pitch, a swimming pool, an indoor gym and a playground for his three children.
While his property also overlooks the Balearic Sea, with the four-time Champions League winner enjoying the stunning coastal views at his luxury.
And to make matters better for the global icon, due to environmental restrictions, a no-fly zone has been put in place over the homes located in Castelldefels.
Commenting on the reasons why the runways aren’t allowed to be extended at El Prat airport in Barcelona, Javier Sanchez-Prieto – president of Spanish airline Vueling – hit out at the little magician.
He said: “You cannot pass over where Messi lives.
“This doesn’t happen anywhere else in the world.”
The 2014 World Cup runner-up also boasts a massive outdoor dining area, while his hulking dog is free to roam the garden, although he is occasionally the brunt of Messi’s skills.
He recently showed himself toying with his pet Dogue de Bordeaux as he enjoyed a kick-about ahead of the new La Liga season.
In the video taken by his wife Antonella Roccuzzo, Messi can be seen casually flicking the ball over Hulk’s head, much to the delight of his children.
And it isn’t just Messi that has fallen in love with the houses in Bellamar, as Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho purchased properties there.
It was reported in January that Suarez had bought his ex-Liverpool team-mate the mansion even before the Brazilian completed his switch from the Reds.
