Lionel Messi could exit Barcelona any moment from now and this means he will be waving goodbye to his exotic mansion at Bellamar, just 19 kilometres from the Camp Nou, The Sun reports.
The Argentine star could be on his way to Premier League club Manchester City or Serie A side Inter Milan as both clubs are at the fore-front of getting his signature.
While he awaits his fate with the Blaugrana, he can continue to relax in his beautiful edifice at the exclusive suburb of Castelldefels.
The mansion is located in a serene environment as it is equipped with an indoor gym, swimming pool, playground for his children and a small football pitch.
The multiple Ballon d’Or winner enjoys the stunning coastal views as the home overlooks the Balearic Sea.
Astonishingly, airlines cannot navigate through the area as the house is located in a no-fly zone due to environmental restrictions for homes in Castelldefels.
President of Spanish airline Vueling, Javier Sanchez-Prieto once charged at a journalist who asked why planes cannot go through that neighbourhood.
He said: "You cannot pass over where Messi lives. This doesn’t happen anywhere else in the world."
It is also gathered that aside Messi, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho have also purchased properties there.
Meanwhile, Messi has been told he lacks respect and the only condition that will see him leave Barcelona peacefully is if he pays the club £628 million
He reportedly made up his mind to walk away from the club which he made his home for 15 years after talks with new boss Ronald Koeman.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Manchester City and rivals United have emerged favourites to land want-away Barcelona star Lionel Messi this summer.
Whereas a forward is not top on City's transfer wishlist, the potential arrival of the 33-year-old could give the Pep Guardiola-side the much-needed lift to narrow the gap between them and EPL champions Liverpool.
And bookies have quickly tipped Man City as Messi's possible destination once the forward dumps the Catalan giants.
Ladbrokes have City at 5/2 ahead of Inter, United and Paris Saint-Germain as the likeliest club who could sign the 33-year-old.
