The Rosario star was shown resting on a yacht with Leandro Paredes, with whom he traveled to Saudi Arabia.
Leo Messi posted some photos on Instagram in which he was seen relaxed on a yacht sailing the waters of the Red Sea. In the first image, it was possible to see Rosario’s crack posing with the sunset in the background, in a dreamy postcard.
In the second photo, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner appeared laughing on the boat with Leandro Paredes and his brother. “Discover the Red Sea in Arabia“, he added in the message.
After the 2-2 draw against Troyes on Sunday for the 36th day of Ligue 1, a championship that Paris Saint Germain won early, “Léo” took advantage of his Monday off to rest in Saudi Arabia, country to which traveled to promote it as a tourist destination.
The players of the Argentine national team were received by the Saudi Tourism Minister Ahmed Al Khateeb. “Delighted to welcome Lionel Messi to Saudi Arabia. We are delighted that you are exploring the treasures of the Red Sea, the Jeddah Season festival and our ancient history. This is not his first visit to the Kingdom and it will not be the last,” the official wrote on his Twitter account.

As for football, it turned out that Messi received a curious mark in European football: He is the player who has hit the posts the most times. That was ten times in 24 games, so he is above Robert Lewandowski, who has nine goalscoring opportunities frustrated by the posts.
