Jordan Ibe is more likely to join Liverpool next summer, according to ClubCall, with the youngster preferring a move to Merseyside over Manchester United.

At just 15-years-old, Ibe has starred for Wycombe, breaking into the first team and standing up alongside players almost twice his age.


 

While Manchester United have sent scouts to watch the wonderkid, Liverpool have reportedly stolen the march on their historic rivals, after taking Ibe to the Melwood training base earlier this season for a trial.

Ibe was reportedly very impressive, and made Liverpool even more determined to sign the forward, but with United representing competition in the race to get Ibe’s signature, Liverpool have had to step up their pursuit.

The news that Ibe is preferring a move to Anfield will come as a blow to United, but Sir Alex Ferguson isn’t quite out of the race just yet, with two months still to go before the January window opens.
