After moving to France in August, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) forward Lionel Messi and staying with his family for a long time in a five-star hotel seriously thought about his own real estate in the country. The Sun reports that the legendary football player and his wife are considering buying the Pink Palace castle for 41 million pounds (56.3 million dollars).
The chic 1899 castle, where former French President Charles de Gaulle stayed for a few days in 1940 during World War II, is located in the wealthy Paris suburb of Le Vesinet, not far from the PSG training base. Lionel’s wife Antonella, according to the publication, was looking for an ideal house that would remind the family of a mansion in Barcelona and decided on the option with Pink Palace.
When buying a castle, the Messi family with three children will have an area of two thousand square meters with 30 rooms at their disposal. The premises have a home theater, an indoor squash court, a luxury swimming pool, and a gym. In addition, there are premises for staff on the territory.
