that the Lique 1 side have made up to E7.8 million in just Neymar shirts sales alone. According to the Daily Mails, PSG have had a 75% increase in sales compared to this time last year. And you can be sure that the main reasons are due to the arrival of the Brazilian International and Kylian Mbappe from Monaco. PSG are facing a crisis though, as they are reportedly only supplied with limited amount of Neymar shirts until November, leading to fears they will run out imminently.
