FC Barcelona captain Leo Messi purchased for $7.3 million a furnished four-bedroom, four-bathroom apartment with an ocean view in a building in Sunny Isles, north of Miami Beach.
According to The Real Deal, a real estate business website, the apartment measures more than 5,500 square feet (511 square meters) and the terrace alone 2,100 square feet (195 square meters).
Mark Pordes and Adam Kaufman, of Pordes Residential, confirmed to the specialist website details of the sale of the apartment, which had a list price of $8 million.
The buyer was Celromalina LLC, a company that, according to other local media, is linked to the Leo Messi’s family.
One of the luxuries of the residence, which occupies the ninth floor of the 39-story Regalia building, is that it has a cooler with capacity for 1,000 bottles of wine.
The building has six swimming pools, a spa, cabanas, a fitness center, a yoga room, a chef’s kitchen, a children’s playground, a champagne bar and wine cellar.
According to The Real Deal, two years ago Leo Messi bought a $5 million apartment in Porsche Design Tower, a 60-story building in Miami Beach.
The Regalia is about ten blocks from the Porsche Design Tower.
Earlier this year it became known that Messi had signed a new contract with Barcelona for more than 555 million euros gross for four seasons.
