Juventus, the biggest soccer club in Italy, sold 520,000 Cristiano Ronaldo jerseys in just 24 hours, according to Yahoo Italy.
As official Ronaldo jerseys cost about $120, that would be $62.4 million in total revenue almost half his transfer fee.
Ronaldo left Real Madrid for Juventus last week in a $129.3 million deal, but the Italian club will not recuperate the bulk of the transfer fee from shirt sales alone, as typically clubs receive only 10-15% of the revenue generated by the kit manufacturer (Adidas).
It is therefore likely that Juventus will see about $6 million to $9 million of this money.
Regardless, Juventus is still feeling the effects of acquiring one of the planet’s most famous athletes.
