Who is the best selling player in the world ? When it comes to name and number kits on the back of a club jersey (as opposed to a federation’s jersey).
Here below you will find the same data as through the link:
Messi – 1.200.000 (PSG)
Ronaldo – 1.050.000 (Man Utd)
Lewandowski – 970.000 (FC Bayern)
Salah – 860.000 (Liverpool FC)
Mbappe – 816.000 (PSG)
Haaland – 767.000 (Dortmund)
Benzema – 699.000 (Real Madrid)
Kante – 655.000 (Chelsea)
De Bruyne – 622.000 (Man City)
Neymar – 547.000 (PSG)
Another report deals with the total number shirts sold by club. This is a top 10 list.
PSG is the number 9 on the list with 1.180.000 jerseys.
According to the numbers above for indiviual players well in the case of PSG: Messi + Mbappe + Neymar = 2.550.000 jerseys.
Of course it could be that one data set is from 2020 and another data set is from 2021. Or it could be that these figures are rather dubious. No doubts though that the teams and the players mentioned are the top sellers. But the quantities mentioned ……. hmm who knows ?
The top best selling clubs:
Bayern, Real Madrid, Liverpool
Man Utd, Chelsea, FC Barcelona
Juve, Dortmund, PSG, Man City
So which club(s) on the top 10 does not have a top 10 selling player ?
FC Barcelona and Juventus. The list the year before probably had Barcelona selling more shirts (Messi), and Juventus as well (Ronaldo). Though both clubs had the benefit of being able to sell these players throughout the summer before their last-minute departures.
