It’s safe to say that Michael Jordan was pleased to see the news that Lionel Messi would be leaving Barcelona and signing with PSG. See, Air Jordan manufactures PSG’s kits and according to Front Office Sports, Jordan himself gets a cut of the club’s shirt sales.
We’re not talking about a small cut, either. Jordan has already made over $7 million in just two weeks off of shirt sales. MJ reportedly gets 5% of shirt sales from PSG, which 5% is quite a bit given the fact that Messi kits have already pulled in over $100 million. Not to mention the extremely popular kits of PSG teammates Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
