As news broke wild of Lionel Messi‘s move to Paris Saint-Germain, all Barcelona shirts with Messi‘s No.10 for the 2021/22 season disappeared from the shelves.

Although no huge economic losses from this are expected yet, and it will be Nike’s job to decide what happens to the shirts once they are returned.

Barcelona have about two months to returned the Messi shirts for the upcoming season to the North American multinational headquarters.

This is the standard procedure for shirts that have already been printed before a player leaves a club.

Messi accounts for 80 percent of shirt sales at Barcelona

According to variety of studies, about eight out of ten Barcelona shirts that are sold have had messi‘s No.10 printed on the back, which means an income of between 20 and 30 million euros per season for the Catalan club.

The general director of Diagonal Inversiones, Marc Ciria, explained following Messi’s departure that they are hoping that Memphis Depay’s shirts might sell at a good pace after this blow.

He could feature on five out of every ten shirts sold and thus avoid a drop in sales of more than 30 percent in the short term,” Ciria noted.

Barcelona’s shirts for the 2021/22 have been on sale ever since June 16, meaning fans have had two months to purchase their Messi shirts for the upcoming season, meanwhile it was taken for granted that the Argentine would be staying at the Camp Nou.
