The 10 best-selling football shirts in Europe have been revealed with some surprises
Europe’s 10 best-selling football shirts have been revealed and it’s Bayern Munich who retreated to the top.
Those two moves weren’t even enough to push PSG or United into the top three according to data from Euromerica Sport Marketing.
Bayern shipped 3.25 million shirts between January 2021 and December 2021 according to the study, 200,000 more than second place Real Madrid.
Liverpool take third place and United fourth, while PSG are ninth despite having Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in their ranks.
Check out the full top ten below:
10. Manchester City – 1.08 million
9. Paris Saint-Germain – 1.18 million
8. Borussia Dortmund – 1.22 million
7. Chelsea – 1.31 million
6. Barcelona – 1.34 million
5. Juventus – 1.42 million
3. Liverpool – 2.45 million
2. Real Madrid – 3.05 million
1. Bayern Munich – 3.25 million
Juventus are the only Italian team to make the list, possibly because they had Ronaldo until August when he opted to return to Old Trafford.
Ronaldo received his iconic number seven shirt from veteran striker Edinson Cavani who had the number last season.
On the pitch however, Ronaldo’s return has not been easy and he is currently enjoying his worst club goal drought in over 13 years.
The 37-year-old hasn’t scored in his last five games, which hasn’t happened since December 2008 when he first came to England.
Messi hasn’t had the best times in France either and reports claim he’s currently unhappy at PSG.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side lead Ligue 1 with 13 points but Messi has scored just two goals in 13 appearances.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner fared much better in the Champions League, scoring five out of five.
