Manchester City star Raheem Sterling is reportedly fielding a highly lucrative £100million boot deal offer with Nike Air Jordan.
Jordan brand are hoping to take on Nike and adidas having only broken into the football market in 2018.
And the brand is understood to have identified Sterling, 24, to wear Jordan – a subsidiary of Nike – football boots.
French giants Paris Saint-Germain currently sport the Jordan logo on their kit and now Jordan are tabling one of the biggest boot deals in the world to the England international.
The Daily Telegraph reports that the figure is a proposed £100m but is subject to change based on the number of years they offer.
Jordan are a major player in basketball, with some of the biggest named in NBA signed up to Michael Jordan’s own brand which was founded in 1984.
Sterling currently has sponsorship deals with EA Sports and Microsoft and is understood to being chased by H&M and Gillette too.
The former Liverpool man is establishing himself as one of the most marketable names in football.
He won the PFA Young Player of the Year award last season and almost beat Virgil van Dijk to the main award.
Sterling has also emerged as a voice for fighting racism following personal experiences on the football pitch in England and abroad.
The forward played a huge role in helping City win the domestic treble of the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup in 2018/19 and signed a contract keeping him at the club until 2023 last November.
Sterling has made a blistering start to the 2019/20 season having netted a hat-trick during City’s 5-0 win over West Ham.
He has made 51 caps for England and captained the Three Lions for the first-half of their Nations League semi-final against the Netherlands in June.
