Messi Has Made Michael Jordan A Whopping $5 Million, Here's How

Unless you're living in another planet that's not earth, then you're probably aware or have heard that the greatest footballer of all time, Lionel Messi, has moved from Barcelona to PSG on a free transfer.

This came after Barcelona failed to tie him to a new deal, due to the financial difficulty they're currently experiencing which was caused by the covid-19 pandemic.

As you'd expect, after it was announced that Messi has moved to PSG, it quickly topped trending lists on the social media streets and was a topic that was on everyone's lips.

Football fanatics went to crush the PSG website multiple times hoping to get that new jersey no.30 which will be worn by Messi. It is reported that millions of jerseys have been sold in just a few seconds which even surpassed the money PSG has to pay to Messi as part of his $30 million salary package.

If there's one man who's smiling his way to the bank is none other than Basketball legend, Michael Jordan. That's because he's raking in millions upon millions when every Messi new shirt or any PSG shirt for that matter, gets sold.

If you look at the PSG kit, you can see its sponsored or manufactured by the Jordan Brand. Nike owns 95% of the Jordan Brand while the face of the brand, Michael Jordan owns a mere 5%.

So this basically means that whenever a PSG shirt gets sold, Michael Jordan gets to take 5% of the sales royalties. So far he has made over €5 million which is adds to his mammoth net worth of $1.5 billion.

So far Michael Jordan hasn't said much about this Messi situation but it will he really interesting to hear what's he got to say if he decides to open his mouth but I'm guessing the response will probably be a positive one.
