Barcelona and Argentina captain and one of the greatest players of all-time, Lionel Messi has decided to make his travels from one place to another relatively easier, by leasing an incredible private jet which costs over a whopping price of £12m!
Messi has decided to lease the jet so that his family and friends can travel with him to any part of the globe in great comfort. The jet purchased by Messi has some incredible comforts which are befitting one of the biggest icons in the sporting world.
It has been custom made tailoring to the demands of the Barcelona superstar by an Argentinian company.
Here take a look at a few pictures of Messi’s new beast:
While entering into the jet, the stairs have the name of Messi’s family on them. The names of his three kids Mateo, Ciro and Thiago are all present on the steps. The name of his childhood sweetheart and wife Antonela are also present on the stairs.
The jet also has Messi’s iconic No.10 on the rudder of the jet which gives it a very distinct look and feels with the shirt number which Messi has made immortal for both Barcelona and Argentina.
The customized jet also has a kitchen, two bathrooms and 16 seats. The 16 seats are foldable in nature and can be converted into 8 beds.
The plane is a 2004 Gulfstream V model and is regarded as one of the finest private jets in the world.
It is a well-deserved addition to Messi’s assets collection as he has again been at his brilliant best in the 2018-19 season for Barcelona. He has already scored 17 goals and registered 10 assists for the Blaugrana this season, topping the scoring charts in the Spanish La Liga.
