PAULO DYBALA has broken Cristiano Ronaldo's record for shirt sales following his free transfer to Roma.
Jose Mourinho managed to pull off the stunning coup and get the in-demand striker to Rome after his contract ran out at Juventus.
Fans have shown their appreciation for the marquee signing with a huge reaction in shirt sales.
According to Corriere dello sport, the 28-year-old has even managed to surpass the amount of shirts that Juventus sold after Ronaldo's signing in 2018.
The measurements is based on how many respective jerseys either club sold on the day after the announcement of the purchase.
While the reports don't contain figures, it is believed the forward just edges out Ronaldo, who he played alongside at Juventus for three years.
