Lionel Messi is fully immersing himself into American culture and adjusting to life in Miami by grocery shopping at US supermarket chain Publix on just his second day in South Florida.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner was spotted pushing a cart at the grocery store’s checkout with different types of cereal including General Mills’ Lucky Charms and Kellogg’s’ Fruit Loops on Thursday, as fans are eager for Inter Miami to confirm his signing by this upcoming weekend, at the earliest.
Messi, who is set to earn $54million per year, landed in Miami on Tuesday with his wife, Antonela, and their three sons, Thiago, 10, Mateo, 7, and Ciro, 5.
The Argentine, whose height is listed at five-ft-seven, even had time to pose with some of his US fans based in the Sunshine State, as he was headed towards the grocery store’s exit.
Earlier this week, Messi was spotted at a family meal in Miami Beach on his first day in the US on Wednesday and was even kissed by a fan on his way out of the eatery!
