Soccer superstar Lionel Messi is worth a staggering amount of money that even discharge from his nose can cost an arm and a leg.
One of Messi's memorabilia will be yours if you are willing to pay $1 million.
Messi's 21-year stint at Barcelona came to a close earlier this month.
After Barcelona announced the news to the world, Messi held a press conference a few days later where he bid adios.
And to say his final goodbyes was a tear-jerker would be an understatement.
Barely moments after he took to the stage, the tough athlete couldn't hold his emotion and broke down in tears.
Messi was handed a tissue by his wife Antonella Messi. The tissue was, understandably, discarded by Messi.
According to a report by Complete Sports, an unnamed person who was sitting in the front row of the presscon somehow managed to snag the discarded tissue.
Thinking he could make money out of the piece of trash, the man then posted an advertisement on the e-commerce website Meikeduo -- with a starting price up an outrageous $1 million.
The seller justifies the whopping price by writing a description that says the tissue contains Messi's "genetic material" and can be used to "clone" another version of the player.
Messi is one of the greatest players in the history of the sport. The record six-time Ballon d'Or awardee shocked the entire sporting world when he switched from FC Barcelona to Ligue 1 giants PSG in the run-up to the new futbol season.
Messi is also a 10-time Spanish League champion, eight-time Spanish Super Cup champion, and seven-time Copa del Rey champion.
The 34-year old Messi was born in Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina.
He began dating Antonela Ruccuzzo in 2008, but they have been close friends since she was five years old.
The couple has three children -- Thiago, Mateo, and Ciro.
As Messi settles into a life of luxury and fame, he remains the highest-paid athlete on the planet.
Meanwhile, the ad is still live with no buyer willing to shell out that kind of money -- wonder why?
