The speculation about Rory McIlroy making a switch to join Nike has become ever more apparent after it was announced that he would not be renewing his sponsorship deal with the Jumeirah Group. It is believed the the Northern Irishman has earned around £4.4 million in a deal that he signed with the Dubai company 5 years ago.
McIlroy also ended deals with Oakley and Titleist at the end of 2012 leaving him open to sign the speculated £250 million deal over 5 years with Nike.
The official announcement is expected to made in Abu Dhabi on the 14th of January.
Do you think it’s a good move for Rory? Or should he be concentrating on trying to become the best player that’s ever lived rather than trying to earn as much as he possibly can?
