Man Utd ace Van Persie proves biggest shirt seller in UK

Robin van Persie has proved a moneyspinner for Manchester United.

The Daily Mail says Van Persie is the most popular player in the Premier League - according to the number of shirts he sells anyway.

The Holland striker has stormed to the top of the shirt sales league, taking the top spot away from his Manchester United team-mate Wayne Rooney.

The former Arsenal man dominates the market with a massive 25.4 per cent of all personalised kits sold bearing 'V.Persie 20'.

1) Van Persie (20) - 25.4 per cent
