TISSUE THAT LIONEL MESSI USED WHEN CRYING AT PRESS CONFERENCE BEING SOLD AT $ 1MILLION
One of Lionel Messi’s memorabilia will be yours if you are willing to pay a whopping sum of $1 million. Messi, who was reduced to tears during his emotional press conference was handed a tissue by his wife Antonella Messi. The same tissue that Messi used to wipe off his tears at the press conference has been reportedly put up for sale. At a time when Messi’s merchandise is helping Paris Saint Germain (PSG) boost their fan following across the world, a used tissue of the Argentine goal machine has been priced at $1 million on an auction site.
There is no denying that Messi is one of the greatest players in the history of the beautiful game. The record six-time Ballon d’Or winner shocked the entire sports fraternity when he completed his sensational switch from FC Barcelona to Ligue 1 giants PSG in the build-up to the new season. Messi, who will go down in history as an all-time great had to end his 21-year long association with FC Barcelona due to LaLiga’s financial fair play rules.
According to Complete Sports, a man who attended Messi’s farewell speech in Catalonia managed to acquire the tissue that Messi used to dry his eyes at the press conference. The unnamed man wants interested buyers to spend a staggering sum of $1 million if they really want to get hands-on Messi’s used tissue.
The man has come up with a claim that the tissue has Messi’s genetic material which can pave the way to clone a player like the legendary Barcelona in the future. The aforementioned claim is as insane as the price of Messi’s alleged used tissue at the auction site.
