Gun Found in Blood-Soaked Boat
… Cops on Manhunt

The older brother of soccer mega-star Lionel Messi is a wanted man in Argentina after cops discovered a gun in his blood-soaked boat … according to reports.
Matias Messi allegedly told a security guard at the Fighiera fishing club that he cut his face by colliding with a sandbar … but after police discovered a .380 handgun inside Matias’ motorboat, they tried (and failed) to track him down for questioning.
The Messi family is pissed over all the accusations — issuing a statement today saying Matias was NOT carrying a gun on the boat … and has been MIA because he’s at the hospital prepping for surgery.
If the gun is found to be Matias’ … he could be in serious trouble. Back in 2008, he was arrested for carrying a loaded firearm without a permit … and in 2015, he was detained for again failing to provide documentation for his gun.
