Maradona's five children 'likely to feud with his six rumoured offspring' for a ...

Diego Maradona's death could spark a family feud over his estate as he leaves behind five children he recognised as his and six others he has been linked to.

Before he died one of his daughters joked he could make up a starting eleven with his kids after a 23-year-old Argentinian was named as the latest woman fighting to prove she was his daughter.

Maradona had recognised two sons and three daughters by four different women - including his ex-wife Claudia Villafane and former long-term partner Veronica Ojeda - as his own.

Giannina Maradona, one of the former footballer's two daughters by Villafane, joked last year after the names of three children said to be his in Cuba were made public: 'Just three more needed for the team of 11. You can do it!!!'

In October last year a 23-year-old brunette called Magali Gil emerged as the latest possible member of Maradona's brood.

Popular Argentinian TV programme Intrusos said she had a young daughter which would have made the former Naples and Barcelona star a grandfather if he was confirmed as her father.

She is understood to have launched legal proceedings in April last year to try to prove her blood link.

Who are Maradona's recognised children and who are the rumoured offspring?

Recognised children:

Diego Junior, 34 Jana, 23 Dalma, 32 Gianinna, 30 Diego Fernando, seven

Rumoured offspring:

'The Cuban trio' - Joana, Lu and Javielito Magali Gil, 23  Santiago Lara, 19

Journalist Adrian Pallares told Intrusos: 'Her mother didn't raise her but her adoptive family, who gave her all their love.

'The time came when she discovered she didn't belong to that family and that her father could be Diego Armando Maradona.'

In February the she broke her silence in Argentina to confirm the situation had not moved forward and begged the football legend to agree to a DNA test.

She had already confirmed on Italian TV she had been adopted as a youngster and her birth mum contacted her at the start of 2019 to tell her who her real father was.

Magali told Argentinian journalist Tomas Dente, speaking at the start of the year for the first time in her home nation: 'Sadly we still haven't been able to fix a date for the DNA test.

'I'd like to think that the predisposition Diego's lawyer Matias Morla spoke about last December when we met is still there so this can be resolved as quickly as possible and in the best way possible.

'I'm anxious and worried at what's happening because this is something which is key for me, my identity and my past.

'I'm trying to stay calm and understand that we're talking about Diego Maradona who I know has got a packed diary.

'I'd just like to urge him to realise there's a person who's waiting and needs him to be able to resolve my identify and put an end to this search.'

The Magali bombshell first emerged a month after Santiago Lara, who comes from the same Argentinian city of La Plata where Maradona managed Gimnasia y Esgrima, made a renewed TV appeal for the football legend to recognise him as his son.
