UK Retailer Says That Arsenal Mesut Ozil Shirts Are Outselling Gareth Bale Shirts 5 to 1

A UK sports retailer recently reported that the Arsenal shirts with Mesut Ozil’s name on the back are outselling Gareth Bale Real Madrid shirts by five to one.

A representative from the UK sports retailer said:

“While it would be untrue to say there is not an interest in Bale shirts, our sales data shows he is being significantly outsold by Mesut Ozil and is not attracting the same level of attention generated by Neymar when he transferred to Barcelona earlier in the summer.

“Bale’s talents as a footballer are undoubted, but he has never been one of our bestselling Premiership players, with supporters preferring the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Steven Gerrard and even Fernando Torres.”

Bale may have set a world-transfer record, but it’s Ozil who’s garnering more interest in shirt sales in the UK and worldwide.
