Footballers like outdoing each other on the field of play and nobody will have a problem with that because that is what they are paid to do. However, you will be surprised to realize that they do the same when it comes to searching for a place to call home. Today, we want to take a closer look at the seven most extravagant homes owned by current and former footballer stars. The details about Cristiano Ronaldo new home in Turin are still scanty.

7. Lionel Messi- House Worth $5 million

Barcelona star Lionel Messi is known to be humble in every sense on and off the pitch. However, he has a marvellous mansion in the Catalan capital. He joined the La Liga giants at the age of 14 and so he connected to the City and country. The 31-year-old has won Five Ballon d’Or awards. His house worth $5 million resembles a soccer ball.

6. Mario Balotelli- House Worth $5 million

Italian striker Mario Balotelli owns a great home despite the constant troubles on and off the pitch. He has a $5 million mansion. He enjoyed two great seasons in Ligue 1 with Nice but he might be on the move again this summer.

5. Frank Lampard- House Worth $7 million

Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard retired from football towards the end of 2016. He had a short stint at New York FC but he is now starting off the pundit career and given he is a proven genius, he might do well too. He is the all-time best scorer in the Blues history. He has a house worth $7 million.

4. John Terry- House Worth $7.5 million

Chelsea legend John Terry is yet another English player saying goodbye to the beautiful game. The legendary defender is now trying to help Aston Villa get promoted through playoffs.
