An anonymous user offered on the ‘Mercado Libre’ platform the handkerchief that Messi used to dry his tears for a million dollars.
For a few weeks, the name of the Argentine star, Leonel Messi, has been on everyone’s lips due to his sudden departure from Futbol Club Barcelona after being one of its star players for around 21 years, that is why his emotional farewell did not take long to go around the world, where he could not help crying when he separated from the team that saw him grow up.
That moving day, the wife of the new Paris Saint Germain player, Antonella Roccurzo, upon seeing him with tears in his eyes in the middle of the press conference, handed him a tissue so he could dry his face, which went unnoticed by all the assistants until a few days ago.
Apparently, a person who was that day in the 1899 Auditorium where the event was held to dismiss the footballer, picked up the handkerchief and took the opportunity to auction it on the internet, seeking to earn a few thousand dollars with this peculiar object.
