Maradona acquired the property in 1978 as part of negotiations for his first contract with Napoli, a deal that no one had heard of in those times.
In 2016, the house opened as the shrine of the 1986 World Cup Mexico star thanks to Alberto Perez, the former Argentinus Junior coach who collects Maradona memorabilia.
Perez bought the house for £ 82,000 in 2008 from a woman who had lived there since 1981, when he left Maradona for Boca Juniors.
“It was probably the most romantic part of his life, the best time,” Perez told The Associated Press. “We raised Diego at Argentinos Junior, we can’t forget what Diego means to the club and the neighborhood. On a global level, they know us because of him.”
