- Inside one of soccers greatest superstars private jet
Seven-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi is regarded as one of the best footballer of all time. Top scorer in the history of the Spanish league, FC Barcelona and Argentina, the Argentine footballer is paid €7.2 million euros per month. A salary that allowed him to own several private jets during his career. After using an Embraer Legacy 650, Messi now rents a Gulfstream V for his travels.
This very luxurious private jet can travel up to 11,000 km and carry 16 people. The international football star can eat there, sleep in a bed and even take a shower. This business jet is completely personalized for the footballer, his number 10 appears on the tail of the plane and the stairs bear the names of his parents and children. There are two bathrooms and enough seats for 16 people. Incredibly, the chairs can also be folded up and turned into eight beds. To top things off, the steps feature the names of Messi and his family – wife Antonella, plus children Thiago, Ciro and Mateo. However, the plane – which also boasts his No10 on the tail – is not owned by the superstar, instead he leases it. The 34-year-old had appeared set to finally put pen to paper on a new contract at Barcelona.
