The new Paris Saint-Germain star Lionel Messi and his wife Antonela Roccuzzo have started looking for their permanent residence in France.

The couple is believed to be looking for a house in France’s capital Paris after the 34-year-old’s move from Barcelona.

Argentina striker was spotted enjoying a date night in the French capital with his wife Antonela.

He and his loved ones are currently staying at a £17,000-a-night, a five-star hotel in the center of Paris -but that is just a temporary solution.

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 center of Paris.

The area is more private than the neighborhood of Neuilly-sur-Seine, where several of Messi’s new teammates reside.

Messi and his family have experienced a busy couple of weeks after his surprise move from Barcelona.

Messi subsequently agreed on a two-year contract at PSG, with thousands of fans welcoming him at the airport and stadium.
