Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling is set to sign a major deal with the Jordan brand, according to reports.
The Telegraph has reported that Sterling – whose current deal with Nike is coming to an end soon – is in talks with Jordan to sign a deal which would make him the first footballer to exclusively wear Air Jordan football boots. It’s said that Raheem Sterling would make £100 million from the partnership.
The move would draw Air Jordan even closer to the footballing world, as Brazil’s Neymar has sported Jordan boots in some of his games with PSG, and the brand recently collaborated with PSG to release an exclusive pair of Jordan 6s.
With Sterling’s performance and profile continuing to grow, the 24-year-old is in high demand right now, as he already has partnerships with big brands such as XBOX and EA.
