Lionel Messi's departure from Barcelona was a tearjerker, with the Argentina superstar pictured sobbing uncontrollably during a farewell address on August 8. The throng of Barcelona players and media members stood and cheered Messi for nearly a minute and a half as he stood beside the stage, with the star unable to fight back his emotions.
While the tissue that Lionel Messi used to wipe away his tears during his emotional goodbye address at FC Barcelona is believed to be on the market for $1 million, it has now been discovered that his teary handkerchief has found a buyer.
FC Barcelona superfan and Playboy model Luana Sandien has reportedly offered nearly half a million pounds (INR 4.45 crore) for the tearful handkerchief of the ex-Barca captain.
"I bid $600,000 [£438,000] to get the Messi handkerchief gone, Sandien was quoted by The Sun.
"After that, the ad disappeared. I gave more than half the advertised amount believing I would win, but the ad disappeared after my bid, out of nowhere.
"The ad went off the air without giving more information about the outcome of the case, so we don't know if anyone bought the artifact, or if the advertiser gave up on the idea.
"I hope I made it," Sandien added.
Sandien once appeared with a Barca strip for Playboy, resulting in a magazine sales surge.
Sandien further revealed that if she wins the bid, she intends to pose naked in the handkerchief. Maybe for Playboy.
The official winner of the bid is yet to be announced.
