Manchester City will be able to raise all the money just by selling Messi’s jersey
However, pulling the six-time Ballon d’Or winner into the team is no longer an easy task. Manchester City may have to spend 220 million euros to get one of the best footballers in the world. No doubt the figure is huge. However, the team’s former defender Danny Mills thinks that this cost will not be a big problem for Manchester City. Naturally, the change of club of Argentine Messi means that the demand for the jersey of that team has increased. Mills thinks the Manchester City will be able to raise all the money by selling Messi’s jersey.
Former England defender Mills didn’t just say that. “I don’t think money will be a big issue,” Mills said. I saw that in 2016, 2 million of his jerseys were sold. If you could earn as much as 40 pounds (about 45 euros) from a jersey, you would earn 1.5 million pounds a week. In this way, his wages can be paid. If he had to pay 200 million a year, he could be paid for the sale of the jersey. On the contrary, sales may be higher than before.
