According to reports, Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has bought a penthouse apartment close to Inter’s headquarters in Milan.
SportMediaset claims that the five-time Ballon D’Or winner has bought an apartment close to his father Jorge.
Interestingly, an exclusive sale in the Porta Nuova district has Italian media fueling speculation that Messi will move to Inter, as ‘a well-informed source’ claims that La Pulce invested immediately after his father became a homeowner in Milan.
Messi’s father has, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, also obtained residency in Milan, for fiscal reasons.
Messi was in mercurial form during the UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg victory over Napoli at the Nou Camp. Barcelona qualified for the quarterfinals courtesy a 4-2 aggregate win.
