Lionel Messi Responds To Speculation He Spent £33,000 With Luis Suarez and Cesc Fabregas During Dinner In Ibiza
Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has responded online to speculation that he spent almost £35,000 on food and drink at a restaurant in Ibiza.
The Argentinian has been away on the Balearic island with his fiancee Antonella Roccuzzo, Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas and Barcelona team-mate Luis Suarez, as well as their respective partners Daniella Semaan and Sofia Balbi.
While Messi and Co posted pictures of their night out at Lío Ibiza, Club Restaurant Cabaret on Instagram, another post circulating on social media claiming to show an image of the group’s receipt was going viral.
It showed a grand total of €37,330 spent, including €24,600 on 41 bottles of Dom Perignon at €600 a pop, as well as 27 pizzas and four portions of caviar.
His comment read:
‘Jajajajajajajaja que manera de hablar al pedo. Como inventan. lo mas lindo es que la gente se lo cree.’
That translates to:
‘Hahahahahahaha, what a way to talk s***. How they invent. The most cute thing is that people believe it.’
The group have been been spotted soaking up some rays on a yacht off the coast ahead of Messi’s wedding to Miss Roccuzzo later this summer.
