Barcelona's New Top Shirt Seller Revealed

The Barcelona player whose shirt is highest in demand this season has been revealed to be Memphis Depay.

That's according to Spanish journalist Gerard Romero, who tweeted to say that Depay's shirt has sold the most this season, with Frenkie de Jong and Ansu Fati's trailing just behind.

This will come as a surprise to many, particularly as Depay is new to the Camp Nou, having only arrived in June. That said, the Dutchman has made a pretty good start to life at the Spanish giants, netting twice in his first four games for the club.

Whether the 28 year old's sales will reach those of former star Lionel Messi remains to be seen. According to Marca, the Argentinian's famous number 10 shirt (which is now worn by Fati) accounted for 80% of Barcelona's shirt sales and brought in an income of around 20 to 30 million Euros.

Romero also claimed that Barcelona's third kit has become the highest selling shirt of the season within just a few weeks of being unveiled.

The shirt will be worn exclusively in the Champions League this season by both the men's and women's teams and is one of few favoured third kits this season, with Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund's versions divisive at best.

Despite successful sales, these are worrying moments for the 5-time European champions. Following a late, late draw against Granada on Monday night, Barcelona currently sit 8th in the La Liga table and are already 5 points behind Real Madrid. In addition to the poor results, some fans were critical of Ronald Koeman's side's style of play earlier this week, with the Dutchman quick to defend it in his post-match press conference.

"We changed our style a little bit," he said, as quoted by Sky Sports. "If you see the list of players, what do you do? Play tiki-taka? Tiki-taka when there are no spaces?

We know it's maybe not Barcelona's football but this Barcelona is not that of eight years ago."

Next up for the former Netherlands manager is a trip to Cádiz tomorrow night, where he'll hope success in the club shop is mirrored on the pitch.
