Lionel Messi is reportedly finding it hard to settle in Paris as he’s yet to move into a new home with his family. The playmaker’s compatriot and teammate at PSG, Angel Di Maria, was quoted saying the player’s current personal situation is not as idyllic as it looks.
Argentine newspaper Ole, via Bild, quoted Di Maria describing Messi’s current living situation as “not easy for him”. His club and country team-mate goes on to explain how the football icon has been coping.
He says: “When Leo comes to dinner, there are always motorbikes or cars nearby. The people here are very respectful and if we go out they’ll leave you alone.
“Now, with Leo, we have nowhere to go.”
Messi is yet to find a house in Paris for himself, his wife Antonella, and their three adorable sons Thiago, Matteo, and Ciro.
The player, who has six Ballon d’Or awards, is understood to be residing in the luxurious Le Royal Monceau in Paris. The cheapest room at the swanky boutique hotel is thought to cost around £855 per night.
