Basketball legend, Michael Jordan, has earned a whopping $7million from Lionel Messi’s transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.
After 21 years in Spain, Messi left the Camp Nou for the Ligue 1 club.
Back in 2018, PSG became the first soccer club to partner with the Jordan Brand, the Nike subsidiary that makes the Air Jordan line of shoes and Jumpman merchandise.
Since his move, Messi Paris jerseys are selling fast worldwide and the 2021/2022 season is the first time the PSG home kits feature the Jumpman logo.
That spike in Messi shirt sales has made Jordan about $7 million, reports Argentinian media site TyC Sports.
PSG has reportedly totaled $140 million in sales of Messi’s No. 30 jersey thus far, with Jordan receiving a 5% cut.
Messi has yet to make his debut for Paris, with his new team bringing the superstar along slowly after he led Argentina past Brazil in the Copa America final on July 11.
