Relatives of late football legend, Diego Maradona have begun trying to divide up his £37m fortunes with 16 individuals reportedly eyeing their share.
Recall that the Argentina legend died aged 60 from a heart attack last month.
However, he did not leave a will on how he wants his properties to be shared.
According to The Sun, Maradona signed a will in 2012 but scrapped it four years later.
Following this, a host of relatives has come forward and attempt to pick up what Diego Maradona left behind.
It was gathered that Maradona’s five children have staked their claims in Argentina’s capital Buenos Aires.
However, seven more alleged love-children, as well as four of Maradona’s five sisters, have all come forward.
Since Argentine law bans his children from being disinherited, all parties must be given equal shares.
Speaking about this, a source said;
“With no will, children close to Maradona and some he has never met will all be able to claim an equal share of his fortune.
“That is clearly unacceptable to children who were part of his life for years and feel they have been cheated.”
Another source said;
“The battle for Maradona’s money won’t just be contested — it will be a World Cup.”
Meanwhile, Court papers have shown that his estate includes cash in Switzerland, Dubai and Buenos Aires as well as property dotted throughout the world.
A fleet of luxury vehicles have also been accounted for as have funds from ad contracts with big brands such as Puma and Coca-Cola.
