Puma closing in on record-breaking £100m deal for Man City ace

Puma are willing to hand Manchester City ace Raheem Sterling their richest endorsement deal in football.

Sterling has gone from strength to strength under Guardiola

Sky Sports says Puma are closing in on a record-breaking £100m deal to sign Sterling.

The Premier League star’s present deal with Nike runs out in less than eight weeks (June 30) – and rival brands including Under Armour, Adidas and New Balance have been pursuing Sterling’s signature for more than two years.

If the deal is agreed, Sterling would become Puma’s highest-paid footballer and the face of their global advertising strategy.

It’s thought the Puma deal is similar to the £100m 10-year deal offered by Nike’s subsidiary Air Jordan last year.

Puma already has a 10-year £650m deal as Man City’s kit suppliers.
