Lionel Messi loves Rosario and has always been very attached to the city in which he was born. At his 13 years old, the Argentinian had to leave that place with his father and went to Barcelona, where he started his career in La Masía to then end being one of the best players of the Catalan side history.
Every year, Messi travels to Rosario to spend time with his family during vacations. As this 2020 was very special, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was expected that he was not going to leave to the place where he was born and that he was going to stay in Barcelona for once.
But he decided to travel with his wife Antonela Roccuzzo and his sons Thiago, Mateo and Ciro to Rosario once again. The calendar is very tight for him now, as soccer won’t stop and Barça will play their next game on December 29 against Eibar at Nou Camp. Head coach Ronald Koeman will decide if he wants to count on Messi after his travel or if he let him rest.
The house of Messi at Rosario is located in a village called Arroyo Seco and is worth a fortune. The player is also owner of the house in which he was grown, which stands in a humbler neighborhood of the city and where he doesn’t stay anymore. With an impressive swimming pool and all the mod cons Messi will spend Christmas at Rosario.
