Double Amarilla, a website in his home country, has published an article on the new private jet of Lionel Messi. The Barcelona superstar threw down $15 million (~₦5.5 billion) to purchase a luxury and expensive private aircraft for his family’s journeys from South America to Europe and vice versa.
The jet is a Gulfstream V 2004 version, equipped with 16 seats, two kitchens, and two bathrooms (with one having a shower). As in the article, Messi bought it in America, but Argentina would definitely be the place of its registration.
It doesn’t take the Argentine player much time to render his adjustments to the aircraft. On its tail has a number ‘10’ been painted, as on his competition shirt. Besides, his family members also get their names on each step on the boarding stair (Mateo, Ciro, Thiago, Antonela, and Leo).

Surely he doesn't want to let Ronaldo surpass him both on and out of the pitch. While Ronaldo has tens of super exotic cars in his garage, Messi now chooses a smarter way to get ahead: getting himself a private jet. What an answer!
