Real Madrid are selling replicas of their new 2018/19 shirt with the name of an entirely fictional player on the back, and all for the bargain price of just €150.
The ‘authentic’ shirt below is currently on sale in Real’s online store and features the name and squad number of Alex Hunter.
The uninitiated may be interested to learn that Hunter is the central character in FIFA’s ongoing ‘The Journey’ series which, in the interests of full disclosure, Pies don’t have the foggiest fig about because we’re not 15-years-old anymore.
All we can tell you is that, as of FIFA 19, Hunter is now an imaginary Real Madrid player having secured an imaginary move from LA Galaxy, but, should fans wish to buy his jersey, they will have to part with 132 very real pounds sterling (plus P&P) for the pleasure…
Good grief. In a right and just world, Real won’t sell a single unit.
However, we have zero faith that this will in fact be the case.
