The Jersey Vote: Ronaldo Outsells Kaka: Is He A Better Player?: Vote At

"Real Madrid sold 15 Cristiano Ronaldo jerseys per minute at the club's shop at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in the two hours that followed the player's presentation on Monday, reports said Wednesday."

"The shop sold 2,000 jerseys bearing the Portuguese striker's name and the number nine once sported by club legend Alfredo di Stefano during the period at 85 euros (118 dollars) each for a total revenue of 170,000 euros, sports dailies AS and Marca reported.

"In the rush, 300 black and white Ronaldo jerseys were stolen. The "Cristianomania" continued on Tuesday as the adult size jerseys were sold out at the shop.

"Ronaldo, 24, did much better than Real's other big name new recruit, Brazil's Kaka, who joined the Spanish giants from AC Milan in early June for 65 million euros.

"During the two hours that followed the 27-year-old's presentation at the Bernabeu stadium on June 30, the shop sold 600 Kaka jerseys or five per minute." (Source)
