A couple of fans showed up at what is believed to be Lionel Messi's house in Miami. Nine months after the Argentine star moved to Major League Soccer, 'Messi mania' is still a thing.

His arrival in the United States of America saw stadium attendance shoot upward, with everyone angling to catch a glimpse of the eight-time Ballon d'Or winner in action.

Messi has been serenaded by fans at stores and on the streets, with other fans constantly invading the pitch to get an autograph or a selfie.

Fans show up at Lionel Messi's house

In the latest undated video, a group of fans were spotted at his house with the former Barcelona captain willingly obliging to sign Inter Miami shirts and taking a couple of pictures.

The father of three was laid back, clad in shorts, a black T-shirt, and sandals. Fans reacted to the wholesome video, with @Lord_Rxn saying:

"There is no way it's that easy to just walk up to Messi's house and get a signature and personal video. It's one of the perks of being a neighbour."

@svngbar said:

"He's the most humble person ever. I mean, who let fans enter their house? Let alone signing the jersey with that much care? I love him."

@Em cheekily went after Messi's bodyguard:

"That's Yassine Cheuko's inefficiency."

Messi was last in action on April 28, when he bagged a brace against the New England Revolution. He returns on May 5 when they host New York Red Bulls at the Chase Stadium.
