Raheem Sterling Could be Apple’s Next Global Ambassador Ahead of Euro 2016

Apple is allegedly “close to agreeing a deal” to have Premier League Manchester City F.C. and England national football team’s Raheem Sterling become a global ambassador for the global Apple brand, British tabloid The Sun reported Thursday.

Apple wants Sterling to help launch its Euro 2016 promotional campaign and will be paying him a reported £250,000 per year, or about $355,000 per year, to act as its brand ambassador.

“The Manchester City star has been lined up to be the figure-head of Apple’s promotional work around the European Championship this summer,” the paper wrote.

However, the report states that there’s a bit of a holdup, because Sterling is currently recovering from a groin strain he suffered one month ago, when Man City went up against Manchester United. If Sterling can get better in time to be named to Roy Hodgson’s team in France by this summer, in time for the championship games, Sterling will have the ambassador role.

Apple’s global sports ambassador roster already includes such names as American professional tennis player Serena Williams, F.C. Barcelona forward Neymar da Silva Santos Junior and Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry.
