The last transfer market has been unforgettable after the transfers that took place. In the case of Lionel Messi, the Argentine left Barcelona for the first time and became a player for Paris Saint-Germain; on the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo left Juventus in Turin and returned to the club that saw him become a star, Manchester United.

After that, the sale of jerseys for both players began and, as usual, a comparison was made between the income they generated for their new teams. Although Cristiano arrived at United after Leo was a Paris Saint Germain player, he has already managed to exceed the sales generated by the Argentine star's shirt with the Parisian club.

An investigation by ‘Love the sales’ indicated that the ‘Commander’ has the best-selling shirt in the history of the Premier League. The sale with the number '7' has reached a total of 187 million euros; And, given that the agreement between the sponsor and the club is that the latter kept 10% of the profits, Manchester United has already recovered the investment from the signing of its star who returned.

Cristiano Ronaldo would not only have surpassed Messi in the general sale, but also in the fury of the first twelve hours. CR7's shirt sold a total of 52.4 million euros during noon, while Messi's '30' managed to sell a total of 34.7 million euros for PSG, according to information from The Sports Journal.
