A frustrated Bianconeri supporter has decided to take matters into his own hands by trying to offload the striker to the highest bidder.A Juventus fan received bids of up to €10 million for an eBay listing that advertised the services of Amauri.
The Turin outfit have been unable to offload the unwanted forward, who arrived from Palermo in 2008 for €22.8 million but has been deemed surplus to requirements by coach Antonio Conte.Amauri, who is 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, paving the way for one particular 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Shortly before it was withdrawn by the auction website, the advert had fetched 78 bids, with a €10m offer leading the race.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.
