Raheem Sterling will commit his future to the Reds on monstrous contract…
Read more Liverpool rumours.
Liverpool could be set to award wonderkid winger Raheem Sterling an astronomical wage increase following his mesmeric rise…
The 19-year-old is currently on £35k-per-week, but the Liverpool hierarchy are set to award him a £100k-per-week to make sure he stays at Anfield for the foreseeable future, reports the Mirror.
In December 2012, Sterling tied himself down to Liverpool with the £35k-per-week contract, which was a huge increase on his £2k-per-week deal. Now though, after Sterling wowed Premier League audiences all season, helping Liverpool to an exceptional 2nd placed finish, he’s set to be rewarded again…
Sterling wasn’t even in Brendan Rodgers’ first-team during the first months of the season, but this quickly changed, when he rediscovered the form which saw him burst onto the scene as an 18-year-old 12 months earlier.
Playing alongside the brilliant Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge in the best attacking forward line in the country.
Sterling scored nine Premier League goals and registered five assists in 24 starts, and earned himself a call-up to Roy Hodgson’s World Cup squad as a result.
In fact, many pundits are suggesting that the teenager should be starting for the England side – because of the pace and directness he adds to the side.
Sterling prides himself not only on his ridiculous pace, but his ability with the ball at his feet is notably improving. He can dribble, retain possession in tight areas, and play teammates through on goal with intricate through-balls.
For this reason, Rodgers used him at the tip of the diamond in a central role last season, although Hodgson will likely deploy him wide for England this summer.
His talent is exceptional, and he’ll be a key part of the England set-up and Liverpool’s potential title challenge for years to come no doubt – although it may be a while before he earns an improvement on his reported six figure deal.
