Lionel Messi and wife splurge $10.8 million on mansion



Lionel Messi, the Argentine football sensation with a net worth of $130 million, has made a lavish $10.8 million purchase of a stunning waterfront mansion in Fort Lauderdale, as reported by The Real Deal news.

Messi acquired the property jointly with his wife, Antonella Roccuzzo.


The mansion, a sprawling 10,500-square-foot, eight-bedroom estate located in Fort Lauderdale’s Bay Colony, was bought through a company led by Messi’s wealth manager, Alfonso Nebot, as confirmed by records.

Messi’s arrival at Inter Miami in July marked a significant moment in his career, and he has since led the team to eight wins and four draws.


The Argentine superstar has been actively exploring real estate options across South Florida, ranging from Fort Lauderdale to Boca Raton.

The property, located at 91 Compass Lane, was sold to Messi and Roccuzzo by John and Stacy Dickerson for $10.8 million. Notably, the Dickersons had purchased the estate for $9 million just 16 months earlier, representing a 20% increase in price.

Situated on a 0.4-acre plot, the mansion boasts an impressive 170 feet of waterfront, complete with two docks, a waterfront pool, a gym/spa room, and a stylish Italian kitchen, all of which were highlighted in a 2022 listing for the home.

The team is owned by Miami businessmen and brothers Jorge and José Mas, as well as David Beckham and other partners.
