Inter Milan soccer player Alexis Alejandro Sánchez Sánchez scored a new home in South Florida, The Real Deal has learned.

The striker, who plays for the Chilean national team and is on loan from Manchester United, paid $2.45 million for unit 2604 at the Ritz-Carlton Residences, Sunny Isles Beach, at 15701 Collins Avenue, property records show.

The 31-year-old, whose nickname is “El Niño Maravilla” (meaning the Wonder Child) is Chile’s all-time scorer with 43 goals. He was part of the team that reached the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup. He also previously played for FC Barcelona.

At the Ritz-Carlton, he’ll have access to a private club level on the 33rd floor, a beachfront restaurant, pool deck, kids club, full-service spa, fitness center and wellness center.

The 212-unit, 52-story tower was developed by Fortune International Group and the Château Group and designed by architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica.

The development group declined to comment on the sale.

Fortune and Château secured a temporary certificate of occupancy in February, allowing the developers to start closings. In a TRD webinar earlier this month, Fortune President and CEO Edgardo Defortuna said the developers have paid their roughly $210 million construction loan down to about $50 million. More than 70 units have closed, according to property records.

Sánchez won’t be too far from soccer superstar Lionel Messi, who paid $5 million for a unit at Porsche Design Tower in Sunny Isles Beach last year. Sánchez played alongside Messi while at Barcelona.
