Stats Show Paul Pogba Sells More Football Shirts Than Any Other Player in the UK

Manchester United might have paid a world record fee for Paul Pogba 12 months ago but it looks like their investment might be starting to pay off.

The Red Devils splashed out a massive £89 million to re-sign Pogba from Italian giants Juventus in the summer of 2016, a fee which has now been dwarfed by players like Neymar and Kylian Mbappé.

Pogba’s performances on the pitch have started to pick up this season and it seems his marketability off it has too, with the 24-year-old selling more shirts with his name on the back than any other footballer in the United Kingdom.

According to Sports Direct, via Goal.com, Pogba’s name leads the way when it comes popular jerseys, with his pal and team-mate Romelu Lukaku close behind.

Eden Hazard of Chelsea, Alexandre Lacazette of Arsenal and United’s Marcus Rashford make up the top-five.

United won’t pocket every single penny from every Pogba shirt sold, but they’ll definitely make a decent amount of dough.

Are you surprised by the top five?
