Ronaldo simply no match for Beckham in Real Madrid shirt sales

Galacticos Mk II isn't quite catching on for Real Madrid's global army of fans.

Despite the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Karim Benzema now running around in Real colours, shirt sales are down when compared with 2003 numbers.

In 2003, David Beckham, Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane and Luis Figo had Real's cash registers zinging as money rolled in from huge merchandise sales.

Bloomberg reports that this year, sales of Real jerseys are down 25 per cent compared to 2003.
