This post is also available in: esEspañol (Spanish) enEnglish

With the departure of Neymar del Barca many people are asking what will happen to his house … The forward will no longer have as neighbors Messi, Luis Suarez or Cesc Fabregas, because he will no longer live in the urbanization Bellamar in Castelldefels.

His real full name is Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, although he is much better known by Neymar Jr. or even Ney among his friends and teammates. Like the turns of life, the destinations of the Brazilian Crack today with north in Paris, also had variants when deciding his home during his stay in Barcelona, city that welcomed him with open arms and now he misses it.

In 2013 when he signed for the Blaugrana team, only Neymar from his salary at Barça as a footballer entered almost 9 million euros a year. To this must be added, apart from some business he may have, incredible bonuses from advertising. He is one of the most paid players on the planet.

At that time he had chosen to live in the luxurious neighborhood of Pedralbes, in the upper area of ​​Barcelona. It was a house of 500 sqm on a plot of approximately 1000 sqm which was rented thanks to its owner who is a major English entrepreneur with a link to the football club. Its initial rental price was 18,000 € per month furnished.

It is located quite close to the football stadium Camp Nou and that is an added value. In addition, it is one of the quietest areas of the city, where you can go for a walk without anyone bothering you too much. He is not the only player that has chosen this area, among its neighbors we could highlight Pique with Shakira, among many other players and personalities.

Change of airs

We know that since his arrival he wanted to have the sea close to where he lived. It must have been the reason why in early 2016, he decided to move to Castelldefels, to the Bellamar development in the Las Heras neighborhood of Castelldefels. He moved to a spectacular 732 square meter mansion overlooking the Mediterranean Sea located on a hill that had once belonged to Ronaldinho.

The house has three bedrooms en suite, two living rooms, fitness area and a garden of over 1,000 square meters with a large swimming pool. The player paid for it about 5 million euros. The rental price 12,000 euros per month. Its selling price 5 million euros. Are you thinking of moving to a house with a Brazilian history?

Bellamar, urbanization blaugrana

In recent years the Bellamar urbanization has become the ‘refuge’ of many players of Barca, as it has easy access to the Ciutat Esportiva, place where the Catalan team performs their training. Its proximity to the city, only 25 kilometers, the security and privacy it offers are ideal for those seeking luxury, exclusivity and discretion. This is the case of Messi, one of the first to take an eye on the area.

The Argentinian bought in 2009 an old house for 1.8 million euros. Since then he has invested more than 6 million to renovate and adapt his home to his taste and that of his wife, Antonella Rocuzzo. The improvements include a complete renovation of the interior of the home, a small soccer field, a new swimming pool, a gym and a playground for his children, Thiago and Mateo.

A few years ago, Messi was forced to also buy the house next door because of his neighbors noise. This was confirmed by Rakitik, who lives in Gavà Mar, another key area of footballers, in an interview with the Croatian publication ‘Novi List’: “With the neighbors I have had no problem. Not like Messi. He had to buy his house from the neighbors because they were noisy so he could be alone. ” Currently, that house is rented.

In the urbanization Bellamar you can find chalets and old palaces for prices that are around 5 million euros. They are located in an exclusive setting, facing the sea, and its price can reach 6,000 euros per square meter. Naturally, the area has been revalued since the arrival of the players Blaugrana, because many millionaires are willing to pay those amounts to be neighbors of their idols.
