£89m midfielder Paul Pogba is the name which has sold the most number of Manchester United kits and in fact, it was the Frenchman’s name on the back of a United top which was also the most popular in the Premier League.
Pogba number one
Paul Pogba was the player who sold the most number of shirts in the Premier League this summer.
He is a highly marketable player; playing for Man United, the former world’s most expensive player whilst also being one of the world’s best midfielders.
This stat just further backs it up, with the former Juventus man showing he is the league’s most popular player.
Pogba retains his status of the highest number of shirt sales after achieving the same feat in terms of shirt sales last year also.
Unsurprisingly, Manchester United players dominate this season’s player shirt sales.

Despite, only being announced as a United player just a few weeks ago Zlatan Ibrahmivc also makes the top 10.
