MICHAEL JORDAN has made £5million from Lionel Messi’s move to Paris Saint-Germain in just one week.

Last week, the Argentine legend, 34, completed his free transfer to PSG following his shock Barcelona exit.

Fans immediately swarmed to get their hands on ‘Messi 30’ jerseys.

Shirts sold out online in just half an hour, with queues weaving around the French capital the next morning as supporters desperately tried to get into the club shop.

Incredibly, PSG have raked in £100m from Messi jersey sales in the past week. As the days go by, this figure will only increase.

And NBA legend Jordan has been a huge beneficiary of that, raking in £5m for himself.

As part of their partnership, the US company takes home five per cent of all jersey sales.

The news will come as a huge boost to MJ, with the Jordan brand losing 24 per cent of its value during the coronavirus pandemic, according to Forbes.

And the six-time NBA champion will hope the sales keep rolling in.

Messi is expected to make his debut for PSG against Brest on Friday night.

With fans back in the stadium, the club shop is expected to be inundated with supporters keen to add a ‘Messi 30’ top to their collection.
