The Madrid Zoo has made an offer to buy Paul, the octopus who became a pop culture sensation by correctly predicting the outcome of as many World Cup matches as he has legs _ all seven of Germany's games plus the Spain-Netherlands final.
The zoo said it received dozens of requests from Spaniards for Paul's transfer from a German aquarium after Spain won the World Cup last Sunday.
Zoo spokeswoman Amparo Fernandez said Wednesday that an unspecified amount of money was offered for the purchase of Paul, now a hero in Spain.
The zoo said in a statement that it was expecting a response within days from the Sea Life aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany. Sea Life did not immediately comment, asking a reporter to send questions by e-mail.
