Lionel Messi, the 34-year-old scoring leader of Argentina and Barcelona, broke down while delivering his speech to bid farewell to his childhood team after the club stated that it could no longer keep it and allegedly accused La Liga of fair play rules.
But unexpectedly, the tissue used by Lionel Messi during his Barcelona departure conference is out for auction at a whopping $1 million.

Ridiculous advertising strategies
Despite the price of the ‘expensive garbage’ the anonymous seller claims that he will be selling the tissue for an astonishing amount on several other websites.
Reportedly, the individual picked up the used tissue after the end of the conference that announced Messi’s move to Paris Saint-Germain F.C.
Moreover, the anonymous seller also states the reason for the overpricing, saying that the value of the tissue contains Lionel Messi’s “genetic material” which can be used to make a clone of Messi himself.
