Amazingly, Spanish paper Sport have reported that, according to the company Euromericas Sport Marketing, Real Madrid have so far sold approximately 345,000 'James' replica shirts in the 48 hours since the forward was unveiled at the Bernebeu in front of 44,000 fans.

That’s around 7,188 shirts sold per hour worldwide and at €75 each equates to about €26million in sales.

Gerardo Molina, Professor Emeritus in Sports Marketing said today in Sport: "The expection is that the player (James) will sell product at the same level as Cristiano Ronaldo who has sold over one million shirts since arriving at Real Madrid".

"Real Madrid had Figo, Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo and David Beckham but in terms of sales they never came close to these figures when they joined the club," said Euromericas Sport Marketing.
