A frustrated Juventus fan has received bids of up to 10 million euros ($12.3 million) for an eBay listing that advertised the services of Amauri.
The Turin-based side have been unable to offload the unwanted forward, who arrived from Palermoin 2008 for €22.8 million but has fallen out of favour with manager Antonio Conte.
Amauri, currently earning €70,000-a-week at Juve despite not playing a single match this season, has seen potential moves to Genoa and Fiorentina collapse, leading one supporter to go as far as creating an eBay auction to dispose of him.
Shortly before it was withdrawn by the auction website, the advert had fetched 78 bids, with a €10m offer leading the race.
In addition, Amauri’s advert included free postage for the player and an estimated delivery time of four working days, while refunds were not accepted.
The winning bidder would have also netted a freebie in the form of Juve full-back Paolo De Ceglie.
