CORSICA, France, July 1 (UPI) -- A French soccer fan put his home in Corsica, France and everything in it -- including his wife and children -- up for sale to raise money to keep goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa in the French league.

He placed an ad on Le Bon Coin, the French equivalent to eBay, with the hefty offer to raise $13.5 million to stop Ochoa, who played for Mexico in the World Cup, from leaving the club team AC Ajaccio.

Ochoa, who is now a free agent, is expected to sign with one of Europe's biggest clubs. He was considered to be one of the best players in the World Cup with his saves leading to a 0-0 draw with Brazil.

Mexico was knocked out of the World Cup after losing to the Netherlands 2-1.
