MLS compiled the table based on overall retail sales of jerseys on from the start of the season until Sept. 1.

Bale already appears to have made an impact at LAFC having signed for them in June after leaving Real Madrid.

The Wales international has scored two goals in nine MLS games since then as he prepares to lead his country at the World Cup in Qatar.

Fuchs' presence on the list is more surprising, with the left-back having joined Charlotte last year after a six-year spell atLeicester City.

Strikers Vela, Hernandez and Martinez fill out the top five with a combined 195 MLS goals between them.
