If you’re willing to pay a whopping $1 million, you can own a piece of Lionel Messi’s memorabilia.
Messi’s wife Antonella Messi handed him a tissue after he was moved to tears during his emotional press conference.
Messi’s tear-soaked tissue, which he used to wipe away his tears at the press conference, has reportedly been put up for sale.
A used tissue of Argentine goal machine Lionel Messi has been auctioned for $1 million at a time when Messi’s merchandise is helping Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) boost their fan base around the world.
Messi is without a doubt one of the best players in the history of the beautiful game.
In the build-up to the new season, the record six-time Ballon d’Or winner stunned the entire sporting world by completing his sensational switch from FC Barcelona to Ligue 1 giants PSG.
Due to LaLiga’s financial fair play rules, Messi, who will go down in history as an all-time great, had to end his 21-year association with FC Barcelona.
A man who attended Messi’s farewell speech in Catalonia, according to Complete Sports, was able to obtain the tissue Messi used to dry his eyes during the press conference.
If interested buyers really want to get their hands on Messi’s used tissue, the unnamed man wants them to spend a whopping $1 million.
According to Rojakdaily, the man claims that the tissue contains Messi’s genetic material, which could pave the way for future cloning of players like the legendary Barcelona.
The aforementioned claim is as absurd as the auction site’s price for Messi’s alleged used tissue.
