In just under 30 minutes after Paris Saint Germain (PSG) displayed the shirt of Lionel Messi on their website store, the new jersey has completely sold out.
When we visited the French club’s website, only limited Messi women’s and kids PSG shirts were available for sale at over €100.
The Messi men’s PSG shirt sold for €107.99 (£92) when still available for sale.
The club actually made available, home and away kits for sale. While the home kit is white, the away is blue.
Advertising the jersey, the club posted on their social media account; “The new Paris Saint-Germain striker will wear the number 30. Visit the online store to get the Leo Messi jersey! Leo Messi is Parisian and will wear the number 30!”
Earlier in a press statement, PSG had described Messi as a legend and expressed their excitement over his signing.
“Paris Saint-Germain are very happy to announce the signing of Leo Messi to a two-year contract, with an optional extra year.
“The six-time Ballon d’Or winner is considered a legend in his sport and a true source of inspiration for all generations, on and off the pitch.”
