Messi's golden boot to fetch $US5m

A solid gold replica of Lionel Messi's foot could fetch over $US5 million when it goes on sale this week.

Created by Japanese jewellery company Ginza Tanaka, 'The Golden Foot', a 25 kilogram cast of the 25-year-old's lethal left foot, was produced to commemorate Messi's record-breaking haul of 91 goals during 2012.

The cast measures 25 centimetres high, 28 centimetres wide and 16 centimetres deep, is attached to a gold stand which includes Messi's autograph and is displayed on a marble and wood base.

The one of a kind item is priced at $US5,250,000.

Around 50 golden foot plates of Messi's left are also availabel for approximately $US94,500 per plate, while 100 half-size versions of Messi's foot cast are on sale for $US42,000 each.

Proceeds from the sales will go towards the victims of the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in March 2011.
