Kylian Mbappe loses PSG’s top shirt seller spot this season
The French star is likely to leave PSG next summer
Although Kylian Mbappe may be the star player at Paris Saint-Germain, indications suggest that an unfamiliar colleague has eclipsed him in terms of shirt sales.
Mbappe has taken the stage at Parc des Princes since Lionel Messi and Neymar left in the course of the summer.
Lee Kang-in, a recent signing, is posing some challenges for him. According to a tweet from journalist Abdellah Boulma, South Korean Kang-in Lee is the Parisian who sells the most shirts after moving there for £20 million from Mallorca. (A little bit before Mbappe).
