​Barcelona legend Lionel Messi splashed some serious cash on his latest new private jet. The ​31-year-old footballing icon is reported to have leased a luxury plan so his family and friends can travel around in comfort.

The £12m charter plan which was leased form an Argentinean company is absolutely one of a kind.

The exterior of the jet sees the tail which sports Messi's signature number 10 with the names of his wife Antonella and their three children, Thiago, Ciro and Mateo have their names inscribed on the steps.

The plan includes a kitchen, two bathrooms and 16 seats that can be turned into eight beds to sleep.

Here are a couple of pictures of the jet released in a report by the Mirror:

Messi, who missed out on the Ballon d'Or recently, bagged two stunning goals via free-kicks in Barcelona's 4-0 win over local rivals Espanyol last weekend in La Liga.

He was then spotted in attendance at the Santiago Bernabeu for the Copa Libertadores final with his son as River Plate beat Boca Juniors in extra-time.
