As you may have heard, there were whispers on the wind earlier in the week that Lionel Messi had pipped his arch-nemesis Cristiano Ronaldo in a bidding war for the most expensive car on the face of the planet.

It was mooted that Messi had dropped a whopping €32million to get his paws on a ridiculously rare 1957 Ferrari 335s Spider Scaglietti – specifically the one driven by Sir Sterling Moss at the 1958 Cuban Grand Prix.

Turns out it was all complete codswallop, with Messi himself taking to Instagram to scotch the tittle-tattle by posting a sarky photo posing alongside his “new car”…

El nuevo auto que dicen que compre 😜// My new car😂😂

You know how we know Ronaldo wasn’t ever interested in buying that car?

It doesn’t have nearly enough mirrors.

    €32m for that piece of junk?! Has it even been cleaned since the 50s? Where are you supposed to put your bags after doing the weekly big shop at asda? And who in their right mind has a car with no roof for driving around Manchester in the post-deadline-day rain? Nah you can keep it – get yourself a nice Ford Focus, Leo. It even comes in a cool orange colour!
