Leo Messi He is a footballer who likes to invest in real estate. His latest acquisition is neither a flat nor a chalet, but a mansion in Ibiza. One of the places where he has gone on vacation the most times in recent years. The house has a handicap that can lead to a serious problem: it is in an irregular urban situation. And it is that the property does not have a final work license, nor an authorization certificate because the previous owner built several illegal rooms in the garage of the house, as El Periódico de Ibiza points out.

This spectacular estate is located in the Cala Tarida and has 568 meters built. Its distribution is complex to say the least: it has a ground floor of 420 square meters, a basement, an annex and a swimming pool. In total, it has an area of ​​more than 16,000 square meters. The signing of the contract took place on February 3, but without knowing that for some time a team of lawyers had been negotiating with the Sant Josep City Council to give it full legalization. That is, Leo Messi went ahead before the City Council itself could give the go-ahead to said legal concession. Everything indicates that it will finally be achieved, as long as the added works (which did not appear in the initial project) disappeared.

Messi enjoyed this palace with his family during the month of August after paying the seller a check for €10,670,000 and the rest, €330,000 for taxes. The PSG player has not forgotten about Spain and there are more and more rumors that point to a possible return to Barcelona. In fact, Laporta himself spoke about this option at the beginning of August: “We have a moral debt with him and we will see. It’s clear what Leo means to us, but now is not the time to talk. In the United States, many Latin television stations asked us about this issue because there is a lot of interest and it was answered in a more relaxed situation, but now nothing else can be said. Despite the fact that the Laporta-Messi relationship right now is not the best after what he experienced during his departure, Xavi himself has also been in charge of exerting pressure: “I wish that Messi’s stage at Barça had not ended. I think he deserves a second chance. I wish”.
