Nike dropping Cristiano Ronaldo for Neymar
Cristiano Ronaldo is set to be dropped as the face of American sportswear giant Nike, with Neymar reportedly being the one to replace him.
Ronaldo’s league form for Real Madrid has dipped, with Neymar on fire, scoring an amazing 14 goals in 12 league games for Barcelona so far.
Nike had reportedly wanted to make the change after the 2014 World Cup, but waited for Neymar to become a bigger superstar.
The switch is reportedly now set to take place in June 2016, just before the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The iconic Portuguese forward will turn 31 next year and Nike seems to be looking to the future with Neymar, who turns 24 next year.
