The house isn't living its best days at the moment, apparently.
Leo Messi was born in a middle-class neighbourhood in Rosario called 'La Bajada'. His family owned a two-storey house on Israel street.
If you were to visit the neighbourhood without knowing the facts, there's no way you'd spot the house where the legendary footballer was born. The house is closed off by shut curtains and protected by railing, with no sign indicating that Leo spent his childhood years there.
Although it looks abandoned, it's known that the Messi family still own the building, it's just that no one lives there, according to Minichi.
Although the house bears no signs of the Barcelona star having lived there, you can find multiple murals of the Argentine on the Israel street. Parts of the sidewalks are painted in white and blue, the national team colours, with Leo's jersey number on it.
