Memphis Depay shirt: Proving popular among Manchester United fans

Manchester United trio Memphis Depay, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Wayne Rooney are all in the world top 10 for highest-selling shirts.

The news was revealed by United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward upon the release of the club’s quarterly figures, which showed the Red Devils are on course to become the first British club to earn more than £500million in a single year.

Only Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo sold more shirts than Memphis between July and September as United’s new No.7 proved more popular than the likes of Neymar and Luis Suarez.

Schweinsteiger is fourth in the list following his move from Bayern Munich, with Rooney also in the top 10.

Memphis Depay shirt number

Woodward said: said: “Kitbag recently released a ranking list of top selling shirts in July to September, and the results are worth sharing.

“Memphis Depay is the new entrant in the ranks – the third-highest selling shirt in the world after Messi and Ronaldo.

“Three out of the top 10 shirts are Manchester United players – Bastian Schweinsteiger and Wayne Rooney being the others.

“Last year, while with Bayern Munich, Schweinsteiger ranked at 31, but has moved up to fourth position.

“As we have previouosly stated, we believe the impact on player profiles around the world by joining Manchester United is very powerful – and the shirt sales figures are strong evidence of that.”

    Genuinely impressive that United still command so much power in retain terms despite their fall from grace.

    That’s why likes of Adidas paid United £75m for a t-shirt contract. that no 7 shirt is probably the most iconic certainly in England and may be world football. Just need Memphis to kick on and earn the respect that goes with it.

    Antonio Valencia, Michael Owen and Angel Di Maria certainly did wonders for it Warro.

    whoisbeni – No. 7 has proved too much for Angel Di Maria, Michael Owen and Antonio Valencia in recent times. But the No 7 jersey is special for Manchester United. It once worn by George Best, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo. I’m confident Memphis will overcome recent criticisms and show he has the potential to fulfil the expectation
