Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw has signed a new mega-money deal at Old Trafford this evening – but fans of the club’s rivals Liverpool are trolling the news, and insisting Andrew Robertson is twice the player Shaw is.
Having struggled badly under Jose Mourinho over the past two years, a parting of the ways for Shaw and United seemed inevitable sooner rather than later, but the England left-back has turned things around this season and is now one of the first names on the Red Devils’ team-sheet.
The club announced earlier today that Shaw had declared his future to United by signing a contract until 2023, reportedly worth a staggering £195,000 per-week – and Liverpool supporters have been quick to stick the boot in.
Rampaging down the left under Jurgen Klopp for the Anfield side last season, Robertson excelled as one of the best players in his position in Europe – and now Liverpool fans are keen to remind their counterparts of exactly that following today’s news:

If Luke Shaw is getting what's reported 190k a week, Andy Robertson should be kicking klopps door in looking for pay rise.

Fuck sake they're both the same age and Robertson is already levels above Shaw. This ain't Fifa career mode 😂 https://t.co/uSOFJehiYS

@talkSPORTDrive Andy Robertson is reportedly on £50k per week until 2021. Is Shaw 4 times the player? Or has 4 times the potential?

Manchester United will pay Luke Shaw more in wages in 42 weeks than Liverpool paid to sign Andy Robertson. 👀

Scary to think Luke Shaw is earning £100,000 more than Andy Robertson #madness

Do you think Shaw has more potential than Robertson? Who is the better all-round player?
