Argentina’s most iconic football player Diego Maradona’s two old houses and three former cars are being flogged at auction.

The football legend’s pad called Villa Devoto in Buenos Aires, Argentina has a reserve of £650,000.

He bought the luxury six-bedroom property while playing for Boca Juniors in his early playing career.

It is located in an upmarket neighbourhood of the capital in his homeland.

It also has a garage for three cars and a swimming pool.

A second property is also going under the hammer on Sunday and is expected to fetch at least £45,000.

The more modest second home is a two-bed and is located in the beach resort of Mar de Plata.

Maradona’s vehicles are also being sold including a black BMW 750I which is set to go for £165,000.

Other vehicles include a black BMW M4 – with bids set to start at £122,000.

A silver Hyundai H1 people carrier he used to be driven around in by his entourage is expected to go for at least £28,000.

The Hand of god star suffered a heart attack a fortnight after having brain surgery.

A judge overseeing the footy great’s estate granted his children the right to sell them.

Maradona had five legitimate children – Diego Jnr, 34, Dalma, 32, Giannina, 31, Jana, 23 and seven-year-old Diego Fernando.

Damaris Maradona, 36, Magali Gil, 25, Eugenia Laprovittola, 25, Santiago Lara, 19 and the ‘Cuban Trio’ of Joana, Lu and Javielito.

He earned over £30million during his career but had just £70,000 to his name when he died.

Other items bizarrely include workout equipment – like an exercise bike and a treadmill.

Some of Maradona’s old football boots and shirts are also going up for auction run by Adrian Mercado Auctions and take place in the Argentine capital.
