Yes, PSG is the best club in Europe this year… in terms of Instagram follower gains. According to a study by Ticketgum, the Parisian club has shown itself to be the strongest in its progress on this social network. This season, Paris has gained more than 20.4 million new subscribers with a 24% increase in the week following the signing of Lionel Messi in the French capital.
The study estimates that of the 20 million, almost half have decided to follow PSG on their phones and computers since the seven-time Ballon d’Or passed to the Parc des Princes. The stars are making money since the second strongest progression in this area is that of Manchester United, which has gained more than 13.3 million new followers, including 5 just after the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo in the Mancunian club.
But the biggest progression still does not make PSG the most followed club in the world. The first two remain unsurprisingly the two Spaniards of Real Madrid (106 million) and FC Barcelona (102.4 million). On the other hand, the immense link in front of Paris installs it on the third place with 52.8 million followers. This now allows him to be ahead of Manchester United (51.7) and Juventus Turin (51.4).
All that remains now is to translate this brilliant numerical progression into a final victory on the grounds of the Champions League.
