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.

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.”
