According to, Roccuzzo grew up in the upper middle-class Bella Vista district and went to a private school, a source said the couple met aged nine and Messi “fell in love forever at first sight” with Roccuzzo.

“We will always remember Antonella as being around this neighborhood and as being Messi’s girl,” said another friend, Franco Lentini, who grew up in the same modest neighbourhood as the player. They are the love of each other’s lives,” said Vallejos.

Messi moved to Spain aged 13 to join FC Barcelona, but he kept speaking to her through telephone and writing her letters.

She started courses in communications and odontology, but did not finish them. Instead she moved to Spain to join Messi.

She opened a luxury shoe shop there this year along with her friend Sofia Balbi – wife of Messi’s Barcelona strike partner, Uruguay’s Luis Suarez.
