Liverpool star nearly ended up as a Manchester United player

jordan ibeLiverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are breathing a sigh of relief after our landlord informs them of the gossip coming from the Daily Star – and the fact that they very nearly missed out on one of their young stars.

Jordan Ibe was courted by both Manchester United and Manchester City before making the decision to join the Reds – the club he supported since a child – and it seems that he has no regrets at all.

Ibe noted: ‘Yes, I had a trial at Man City when I was younger but nothing came of it. It was a good choice for me to come to Liverpool and I’m glad I’m here.’

As one of our regulars notes, considering Ibe’s teammate Daniel Sturridge found his time at Manchester City and Chelsea difficult, we think the decision to come to Anfield was the right one and is one that will see him afforded playing time and actually aid his development rather than becoming a rather overpaid benchwarmer.

Liverpool fans. How good do you think that the young star can be? Will Ibe and Sterling ensure you have a bright future? Let us know your thoughts below.
