Manchester United striker Robin van Persie reportedly sold the most number of football shirts in the Premier League last season.

The Dutchman, who won the Golden Boot following his arrival at Old Trafford from Arsenal last summer, came out on top, while his unsettled teammate Wayne Rooney has been listed in second place.

According to the Daily Mail, Kitbag's list has revealed that United midfielder Shinji Kagawa came in third, while Liverpool forward Luis Suarez sold the seventh-highest number of shirts during the 2012-13 campaign.

However, Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale, who could potentially become the most expensive player in football history, failed to make the top 10, as did Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard.

1. Robin van Persie (Manchester United)
