Juve beat Man Utd on Instagram

Juventus have surpassed Manchester United to become the third most popular football club on Instagram, behind Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Work on increasing brand recognition and signing big names like Cristiano Ronaldo and Matthijs de Ligt paid off, as their Instagram followers have sky-rocketed.

The Bianconeri had around 10m followers in July 2018, but have just hit 31m, largely thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s 131m fans.

It allowed Juve to overtake Manchester United and become the third most followed football club on Instagram in the world.

The Spanish giants remain at the top, as Real Madrid have 76.6m and Barcelona 76.1m.
