Just days after completing the transfer of James Rodriguez from Monaco for £60 million, Real Madrid have gone some way of recouping that outlay by selling over 900 shirts per hour tafter his unveiling and over 300,000 in the last two days.
L’Equipe revealed on Thursday evening that in less than two days (48 hours), Los Blancos have sold 345,000 replica Rodriguez shirts with total earnings standing at £21million on those sales alone.
Reports from Spain said the Real Madrid shop had to draft in extra hands to deal with the excessive demand for the new No. 10 shirts at the club shop on the day of the Colombian’s unveiling at the Bernebeu.
Another Galactico that Real signed in the past, David Beckham reportedly sold more than a million replica jerseys in his first year at Real Madrid.
In total, Beckham has sold a humongous £1billion in shirt and boot sales in his career and made £15million when he signed a short five-month with PSG during the 2013/13 season
