Liverpool are set to reward Raheem Sterling’s efforts this season by handing him a lucrative new contract worth as much as £100,000-a-week, according to reports.
The Mirror claims that the Reds have already started talks with the 19-year-old sensation, and are willing to put another massive pay-rise on the table merely 18 months after he signed his last deal. In December 2012 Sterling put pen to paper on an agreement which saw his weekly salary rise from £2,000-a-week to £35,000-a-week, and it’s now believed that Liverpool are ready to practically triple his current figure.
The reports states that so long as the youngster returns from World Cup duty in Brazil with his reputation as a burgeoning star still intact - in other words he doesn’t massively flop - then his club will not hesitate to tie him down to Anfield on an eye-watering deal which will ward off any potential suitors that could be snooping around. The winger has excelled under the tutelage of Brendan Rodgers, and is now considered one of England’s brightest talents.
Do you think Sterling is deserved of a potentially massive new deal? Or should he see out more of his current contract which has three years left to run? Let us know in the comments box below...
