Lionel Messi made NBA legend Michael Jordan richer after joining PSG

Lionel Messi is not just a footballer whose influence ends within the football circle alone, his influence goes beyond the game to the extent of impacting the life of NBA legend, Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan is a former American basketball star that played the game of basketball between 1984 and 2003 and still waxing strong in the business end of the game. He is regarded as the greatest basketball player of all time.

He was not only good on the basketball court, but he also had the best brand in the game which is still fetching him good money to date.

For instance, before he retired from the game, he signed a lifetime deal with Nike, an American sportswear manufacturing company. Part of the deal offers him a percentage from the sales of any of the company’s brands that have his trademark on it.

The aspect of the sportswear manufacturing company known as Nike’s Jordan brand is the type of kit which Paris Saint Germain are using since the 2019-2020 season

Nike and Michael Jordan had a deal that he would get 5 percent from the sale of any of the kits long before PSG signed Lionel Messi.

When Messi joined PSG from FC Barcelona, due to how big the brand of the 34-year-old Argentine football star is, PSG have reportedly made a record 120 million euros within a week from the sales of Lionel Messi’s PSG’s kits.

Based on the 5 percent deal Micheal Jordan has with Nike, the 58-year-old retired American basketball star has made six million euros already from the sales of Messi’s kits
