Raheem Sterling & £100m Nike brand Air Jordan boot deal
It’s already been a blinding weekend for Raheem Sterling.
In Man City’s season opener away at West Ham, Sterling walked away with the match ball after a hat-trick.
After scoring 25 goals for Man City in all competitions last season, could Sterling score 30 goals this time around?
As the Man City star improves season on season, Sterling’s PR opportunities are growing too.
As exclusively revealed by Telegraph reporter Sam Wallace on Monday, Nike brand Air Jordan are trying to sign Sterling to a mega boot deal.

Sterling’s Nike deal will expire soon
Sterling already works in partnership with Nike, however the Man City forward is in the final year of that contract.
The Telegraph confirm that Nike are lining up a lucrative new offer to keep Sterling on their books:
Raheem Sterling is contemplating an offer to be one of the first footballers to sign a personal endorsement to wear Air Jordan football boots, in what could be one of the most lucrative boot deals in history.
The deal on offer could be as much as £100 million to sign Sterling, last season’s Football Writers’ Footballer of the Year, depending on the length of the contract.
Gillette and H&M line up deals too
Sterling’s off-field opportunities extend further.
The 24-year-old has already agreed deals to promote Microsoft’s Xbox and EA Sports.
Looking into the future, the Telegraph also confirm that both Gillette and H&M could agree PR contracts with the Man City star.
