Manchester United top the charts for annual shirt sales for the past year, just as they launch their first new kits as part of the £750 million, 10 year deal with adidas.
The commercial giants of English football, Manchester United, have topped the sales charts for the 2014/15 season, according to figures from leading sportswear retailer Kitbag.com
Which is just as well for adidas, who are paying £75 million per annum to make the kit. Nike had been supplying the Red Devils kit at a cost of £23.5 million a year, but decided against continuing the contract past last season.
Manchester United were closely followed by the Premier League champions Chelsea. Barcelona are No 3 on the sales list, followed by Real Madrid, Arsenal and Liverpool.
