An ad placed on a French website similar to eBay says he's selling his family and home for a "good cause." His asking price? $13.5 million.



Ochoa is currently a free agent after being released by a French club at the end of the season - and he's made some pretty epic saves during his time at World Cup.

He was the inspiration for several memes after blocking all six of Brazil's attempts at scoring, preserving a 0-0 draw in Fortaleza.

Although Mexico eventually lost to the Netherlands, viewers found it hard to fault him for the two goals that did get past him.

His performances during the World Cup and in his former French league have reportedly linked him with several prospective teams already, including Liverpool, Arsenal and Marseille.

But even if coaches are keeping an eye on him, we know one family that'll be watching his career closer than anybody.

Check out some snaps of other die hard fans:
