FC Barcelona – La Liga Travelled to Mexico on aircraft
Alberto Fernandez, the president of Argentina, has raised eyebrows lately because of his vehicle of choice to travel to Mexico.
The Argentinian president was invited by his Mexican counterpart, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, to join him in celebrating the 200th anniversary of Mexico’s independence.
What was strange about Fernandez‘s trip was that he was travelling in Lionel Messi‘s plane. The Barcelona forward had rented the aircraft to the president for four days at a cost of 160,000 dollars.
Messi has owned the plane since he bought it in the United States in 2018 and it is currently valued at 15 million dollars.
When the Barcelona captain isn’t in Argentina, the aircraft resides at an airport in Rosario, where he was born.
