Lionel Messi looks to have finally settled on a permanent home in France, and it’s a £41million mansion on the outskirts of Paris.
Although not Versailles-like, Charles De Gaulle was able to stay at the “Pink Palace” for three days during 1940, when the Second World War broke out.
Messi joined PSG after he left Barcelona, where he had been living for over 20 years.
In a sad press conference, Messi, 34, said goodbye to Barcelona, where he had lived for over 20 years. He then arrived in Paris a few days later.
After only one month, Messi appears to have found his Paris home.
Messi, and his family, have been staying at the Royal Monceau, a five-star luxury hotel in the centre of Paris, since he arrived at the Parisian side.
The hotel’s website describes the hotel as “a contemporary and vibrant design masterpiece located in the heart of the City of Lights.”
The hotel has a spa, with a plethora of treatments available as well as luxury living facilities.
Messi does not want to live in a hotel room, as Jose Mourinho did at Lowry when he was with Manchester United.

Messi’s wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, has been tasked with finding the family a home.
The property must be in the same category as the childhood sweetheart of five-time Ballon d’Or winners, Antonela Roccuzzo.
The property must have an indoor pool, a gymnasium, several child’s rooms, a private parking lot, a home cinema, air conditioning, and a garden.
These parameters are very similar to their Barcelona home.
