Manchester United top the league in selling club merchandise - but just look at some of the things they're selling...

The reigning Premier League champions have sold more than any other club on retail website Amazon

Manchester United may have fallen from the top of the league since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, but in terms of selling things with their name and logo on, they remain well on top.

Amazon yesterday revealed that the Red Devils are the best selling UK club in terms of merchandise sold on their website. In second are Chelsea, while third place goes to Liverpool.

Next in the list comes Arsenal, who beat their north London rivals Tottenham into fifth place.

The remainder of the list, which takes into account all sales, makes for some surprising inclusions. Leeds United, who have been out of the top flight for a decade, come seventh. Others outside the Premier League who make it into the top 15 include QPR and Nottingham Forest.

The data takes in each team's branded products - which encompasses a rather diverse range. Check out the gallery below to see some of the more ridiculous 'football related' products on sale...

 

On the European front, it comes as a surprise to see Barcelona and Real Madrid missing from the top of the table, with Italian side Napoli the best selling club of all time.
