Liverpool are on the cusp of agreeing a new contract with their England international star Daniel Sturridge, which could net him up to £40 million over the course of the staggering deal, as reported by the Daily Express.
The contract would also tie the ultra talented striker to the Anfield club until 2019.
Sturridge is on the cusp of returning from an injury suffered while on international duty with England.
The club were not particularly happy with the circumstances surrounding that knock, with Brendan Rodgers believing that the striker was not given enough time to recover after the team’s friendly against Norway.
The new deal would net Sturridge a huge £150,000 a week wage packet, assuming he continues to play and score regularly, as he has done ever since joining the Reds from rivals Chelsea.
This would more than double his current £65,000 a week salary.
A common ground has seemingly been found, with discussions having taken place since the end of the last campaign.
