NEW Paris Saint-Germain star Lionel Messi has enjoyed a date night in the French capital with his wife Antonela.
The couple are believed to be looking for a house in Paris after the 34-year-old’s move from Barcelona.
The Argentina captain and Antonela have both shared pictures on Instagram of their evening, enjoying Paris’s famous cuisine.
Messi and his family have experienced a busy couple of weeks after his surprise move from Barcelona.
The player was set to sign a new deal at the Nou Camp before ‘financial and structural’ obstacles forced him to leave the club.
Messi subsequently agreed a two-year contract at PSG, with thousands of fans welcoming him at the airport and stadium.
He and his loved ones are currently staying at a £17,000-a-night, five-star hotel in the centre of Paris – but that is just a temporary solution.
According to Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, Messi and Antonela have started looking for their permanent residence in France.
They’re believed to be interested in moving to Bougival, a town on the outskirts of Paris where close friend and team-mate Neymar lives.
Bougival is located around five miles from PSG’s training ground and just over nine miles from the centre of Paris.
The area is more private than the neighbourhood of Neuilly-sur-Seine, where several of Messi’s new team-mates reside.
The Argentine is currently building up his fitness ahead of his PSG debut, expected to be away at Reims on August 29.
Rumours suggest Messi could be joined at PSG by Cristiano Ronaldo as a shock replacement for Real Madrid target Kylian Mbappe.
