Here we are talking about the top football players who are sponsored by Nike.

Thibaut Courtois (Belgium) :

Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is one of the greatest goalkeepers in this generation. In the FIFA World Cup 2018, Courtois won the Golden Glove award. The former Chelsea goalkeeper is now serving for Real Madrid.

Thibaut Courtois is one of those present football superstars who are sponsored by Nike.

Erling Haaland (Norway) :

The Norwegian striker Erling Haaland is popular in the football world even at a very young age. He won the Golden Boot in the FIFA U20 World Cup 2019 where he recorded nine goals in a single match.

In his early senior professional career, Haaland has impressed many football fans. The wonder kid has maintained the image of regular goal-scorer for Molde and Red Bull Salzburg (both past clubs), Borussia Dortmund (present club) and Norway national football team.   

There is no doubt that young Haaland is one of the top priorities for international brands. Haaland's one of the present sponsors is Nike.

Harry Kane (England) :

English forward Harry Kane is currently one of the best strikers in the football world. The captain of The Three Lions is now maintaining the incredible goal-scoring ability. The Tottenham Hotspur superstar won the Golden Boot award in the FIFA World Cup 2018. The skipper also played a vital role for England’s runners-up in the UEFA Euro 2020.

The Spurs superstar Harry Kane has a sponsorship deal with Nike. In 2018, Nike celebrated Kane’s 100th Premier League goal with special-edition Hypervenom 3 HK which was introduced just after his 100th PL goal.

Kylian Mbappé (France) :

French forward Kylian Mbappé is already dominating the football world at an early age. Even as a teenager, Mbappé was highly successful as he already experienced the FIFA World Cup victory in 2018. During that tournament, Mbappé became the youngest French footballer to score a goal in World Cup history and the second youngest footballer to score in a World Cup final. While he finished that tournament with four goals (joint second most goal-scorer in that tournament), he won the Best Young Player Award at the end of that tournament.

The former Monaco teenager is now shinning for Paris Saint-Germain. Even at the age of just 22-year-old, Mbappé has already inscribed his name as the third most all-time goal-scorer for the PSG.

Nike also sponsors Kylian Mbappé. Currently, he uses Nike Mercurial Superfly 8 Academy shoes.

Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal) :

In late 2016, Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo became the third athlete to sign a lifetime contract with Nike. Ronaldo, who is popularly known as CR7, is one of the greatest forwards in football history. The former Juventus star Ronaldo is also the all-time most goal-scorer for Real Madrid, who recently returned to another successful club Manchester United.

Not only in global club football, but CR7 is also successful in international football too. The unstoppable record-breaker is also holding the record of most international goals by a male player. He led Portugal to win the UEFA Euro Cup 2016 and 2018/19 UEFA Nations League, Portugal’s first two international titles.

So, there is no doubt why Ronaldo is special for Nike, who became the first footballer to earn a lifetime deal with Nike. The Portuguese superstar has already experienced more than 60 different versions of Nike's Mercurial soccer cleats since his first Nike contract in 2003.
