Messi's private jet makes 52 trips this summer 

Lionel Messi's private jet released as many carbon emissions in three months as the average French citizen would over a 150 years, according to a report, the Daily Mail reported.

The jet is claimed to have made 52 flights from June 1 to August 31.

He flew between Buenos Aires in Argentina and Miami five times overall.ё
