Manchester United pip Real Madrid and Barcelona to title of world’s most popular club based on shirt sales

They may be playing catch up in the Premier League but Manchester United have retained their title as the world’s most popular football club based on sales of replica kits.

Stats CONFIRM Man United are the most popular club in the world

The Red Devils have sold an average of 1.75million a year in the five-season period between 2011 and 2016, according to research from industry insider Dr Peter Rohlmann and his team at PR Marketing.

Jose Mourinho’s side signed a record-breaking £75m-a-year deal with German sportswear giants adidas in 2015.

That deal helped them eclipse Real Madrid in second place, with Zinedine Zidane’s side selling around 100,000 fewer shirts.

Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Chelsea make up the rest of the top five with Premier League rivals Liverpool in sixth.
