The tissue paper Lionel Messi used to wipe his tears when he was bidding his club farewell would be worth US$1 million, according to a new report.
Recall that the Barcelona superstar had his emotions taking the better side of him while sharing his last moment with Barcelona as he opened a historic chapter in his illustrious career by switching to French giants PSG.
His wife, Antonella, who witnessed an emotional Messi at the farewell conference while giving his speech on stage, gave him a tissue to wipe off his tears without knowing the consequences.
After the press conference, one anonymous guy who picked up the used tissue, put an advertisement on popular websites, and announced that he would sell it for US$1 million, reported Gulf Today.
It was also reported that the anonymous seller also claimed that the tissue was expensive because it contains Messi’s “genetic material”, which will assist one to become a football star like Messi.
Lionel Andrés Messi, also known as Leo Messi, is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain and captains the Argentina national team.
