Raheem Sterling has been offered a $120 million deal from Nike Air Jordan to become one of the first ever soccer players to endorse the brand’s boots, and the contract would see him earn more than NBA starlet Zion Williamson.

The Telegraph reports Sterling is contemplating an offer from the iconic shoe label with his current boot deal, also with Nike, set to come to an end later this year.

Should Sterling accept, he’d become one of Air Jordan’s highest paid athletes, ahead of basketball prodigy Zion Williamson.

Williamson, who was first pick of the 2019 NBA draft, signed a seven-year, $75-million deal with Air Jordan in July, just weeks after being snapped up by New Orleans Pelicans.

The deal for the 6-foot-7, 19-year-old forward, was the most lucrative shoe deal for a rookie in NBA history, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Other high profile athletes signed to Air Jordan include NBA duo Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook, as well as MLB star Mookie Betts.
