Ronaldo has been representing Nike since joining Manchester United for the first time back in 2003. He has penned a lifetime contract with the American sports brand but struggled to impress for Portugal in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Kevin De Bruyne
De Bruyne is widely regarded as one of the best midfielders in world football at the moment. He penned a seven-year deal with Nike but failed to help Belgium qualify from the group stages of this World Cup.
Rashford has been with Nike since he was just 11. Back in 2021, he decided to extend his contract with the Sports brand and managed to catch the eye for England during the World Cup.
