Raheem Sterling’s current deal with Nike is set to expire next year, and reports now suggest that he could be close to signing a record-breaking three-year extension, with talks said to be at an advanced stage.

There’s no denying the fact that Raheem Sterling has become one of the hottest properties in football today. So it comes as no real surprise to learn that, with the Englishman’s contract set to expire next year, Nike are keen to retain his services as one of their global ambassadors. What is surprising however, is the news that the three year deal that’s said to be on the table would be one of the most lucrative commercial football player deals of all-time.

With the fact that his contract is set to expire being public knowledge, there is obviously a raft of suitors circling the Man City man, with both PUMA and Jordan leading the chase. With those types of brands in the hunt, you can guarantee that the money in question will be game changing. Combine that with the fact that City have recently opened talks with the winger over a new deal – just over 12 months since he signed his last contract that earns him in the region of £300,000 per week – and it looks like the Sterling family are set for the foreseeable.
