Depay’s Shirt is the Third Most Sold Shirt in World Football…Behind Ronaldo and Messi

Depay’s Shirt is the Third Most Sold Shirt in World Football…Behind Ronaldo and Messi

Memphis Depay has endured a pretty wretched couple of weeks.

Firstly, the Dutch winger was omitted from his country’s national squad for the upcoming friendly with Germany, following his poor performances in their embarrassing failure to reach Euro 2016.

And then Depay was forced to admit the reason he may not be an automatic pick for Manchester United at the  moment is because he’s put on considerable weight since joining the Red Devils for £25 million last summer.

But we have some news which should cheer the 21-year-old up, courtesy of his chief executive Ed Woodward.

Woodward has revealed that according to the club’s accounts, Depay’s number seven shirt is the third-most sold football shirt in the world at the moment, behind only Messi and Ronaldo.

And interestingly, his team-mate Bastian Schweinsteiger has seen his number 31 shirt rise from, coincidentally, 31st overall to fourth worldwide.

They may be going through a rough patch trophy-wise, but it appears United still have the same old global pulling power that made them such a force world wide.
