The Daily Mirror have certainly managed to cheer Liverpool fans up here in the Football Transfer Tavern by claiming that the Reds are set to see Jordan Ibe commit his future to the club.
Ibe’s form has been a revelation for the Merseyside team this season and we think that after seeing the likes of Harry Kane and Tyler Blackett rewarded for their displays with a new deal and a hike in their wages, it was only fair Brendan Rodgers instructed his board to follow suit for Ibe.
The 19-year-old will now be handed a five-year deal that will obviously see his future tied down and his wages rise from £6000 per week to an astonishing £25,000 which will certainly put him well on his way to being in the big boy’s pay bracket.
Our punters over by the pool table pause from eating their League Cup final burger special and note that they think the winger is fully deserving of the new deal, and it is a bright spot in an otherwise nightmare week for the Reds.
Liverpool fans. Do you think Ibe is worth that kind of money or is this all that is wrong in football? Let us know your thoughts below.
