WASHINGTON - Thirteen-year-old soccer prodigy Freddy Adu agreed to a $1 million contract with Nike, The Washington Post reported Monday.

Adu, already an offensive star on the U.S. under-17 national team, also has agreed to be represented by SportsNet, LLC.

Arnold Tarzay, a lawyer and family adviser, did not confirm the amount of the deal to the Post, which cited sources for the worth of the multiyear contract. The paper said Adu is not likely to sign a pro contract for at least a year.

On a side note, I personally got the chance to see him play. My travel club in Davie, Florida played against the team he played with back then, AC Milan U-18. I was injured so I couldnt play, the kid is a phenom.

Thats insane. They said he didnt plan on signing on pro for at least a year. Why is it that almost every other sport you forfeit your amateur status and aren't allowed to play amateur if you accept money or gifts, or shoe deals. Look at LeBron James, he almost missed the end of his high school career because some sports store gave him a few throwback jerseys.
