Michael Jordan has made $7 Million thanks to Messi’s new signing at PSG

Michael Jordan has reportedly made $7 million from Messiā€™s transfer to PSG.

Jordan Brand has a partnership deal with PSG since 2018 and Jordan earns a 5% cut of shirt sales. Following the arrival of Messi, PSG has seen a massive rise in sales of replica jerseys, particularly Messiā€™s.

TheĀ Business InsiderĀ reports that an adult jersey with the name of Messi printed on the back of the jersey sells for $162. And according toĀ TyC Sports, PSG has so far made $140 million in sales of the shirts since Messi arrived. For each jersey sold, Jordan makes 5% of the sale of a shirt.

Jordan has a 36-year partnership with Nike which has earned him at least $1.3 billion, according to Forbes. It is the richest athlete endorsement deal ever but also arguably the biggest bargain due to the fact that Jordan helped Nike move from a relatively unknown brand to one of the most valuable in the world today.
