BUENOS AIRES: Houses, cars and other property owned by Diego Armando Maradona will be auctioned in Argentina on December 19.

The auction has been authorised by the five children and formal heirs of the superstar who died on November 25,: Diego Maradona Sinagra, Gianinna Maradona, Dalma Maradona, Jana Maradona and Diego Fernando Maradona.

They reportedly agreed that the sale to generate revenue made the most sense for items which have no sentimental value for them.

The main asset of the auction is a house located in the Villa Deboto neighbourhood which was the home of his parents, Dalma Salvadora Franco (Doña Tota) and Diego Maradona (Don Diego).

Also included is a BMW M4 car “customised with lights and police patrol siren” and a painting signed by Maradona.
