Raheem Sterling has become a top Premier League star since Pep Guardiola's arrival at Manchester City.  

He's one of his club's most important players and has scored 35 goals over the last two seasons, helping City win back-to-back titles.  

On Saturday afternoon, he kicked-off his 2019/20 campaign in style. Sterling bagged a hat-trick against West Ham as the champions ran out 5-0 winners. 

Things are looking good for the forward once again - and they could soon get even better. 

According to reports from the Telegraph, Sterling has an offer to become the first-ever Premier League footballer to sign a personal endorsement to wear Air Jordan football boots.

His reward for doing so? A deal worth up to £100 million. 

That's going to be very hard to turn down, considering it could be one of the most lucrative boot deals in history.

Sterling is in the final year of his current sponsorship with Nike and per the Telegraph, he's now one of the most in-demand 'commercial properties' given his performances and his public voice.

Apparently, Air Jordan view this as an opportunity to 'open up a new front in the brand battle to dominate the football market'. 

The American brand, which is a subsidiary of Nike, have not yet designed any football boots but they have recently entered the European market. 

Air Jordan have a collaboration with Paris Saint-Germain and designed a number of special jerseys and trainers for the club last season. 

Neymar also featured the 'Jumpman' logo on a pair of his Nike Hypervenum boots last season - check them out below. If Sterling signs a deal with Air Jordan, he could be wearing similar designs.

Given that he's in the last year of his current sponsorship deal, Sterling has a big decision to make. If he does choose to sign with Air Jordan, then he'll become a Premier League trailblazer.
