. . . Ibrahim Rabiu . . .

Ibrahim was born in Kano. In summer 2007, he signed for Sporting CP for 450,000, in a joint ownership agreement with his previous club Gateway FC.[1] Shortly afterwards, it was reported that Premier League sides Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Arsenal[2] were interested in signing him,[3][4] but nothing came of it.

In late 2007, Ibrahim was included by World Soccer in its 50 Most Exciting Teen Footballers list[5] and, in March of the following year, he was featured by InsideFutbol.com in an article on young African footballers including Emmanuel Adebayor, Mario Balotelli and Mikel John Obi.[6] In January 2009, he appeared in Goal.com‘s list of 10 African Players to Watch,[7] and The TimesFootball’s Top 50 Rising Stars.[8]

With Sporting, Ibrahim participated in the 2008 Bellinzona Under-19 International Tournament, with the Portuguese eventually winning the trophy. In the competition, in which he was eventually voted as the best player, he was deployed as a classic number 10 in a 4–2–3–1 system; one year later, he again led the Lisbon team to the final stage of the same tournament.[9]

In October 2009, Ibrahim twice rejected Sporting’s offer of a professional contract,[10] and was at that time sent on loan to Real S.C. in the third division. In January 2010 he drew interest from Scottish Premier League‘s Celtic,[11] but the deal never materialised due to undisclosed reasons believed to involve work permit issues.[12]

In 2010, Ibrahim left Sporting as a free agent. Subsequently, Dutch side VVV-Venlo tried to sign him in partnership with a United Kingdom-based consortium, but the negotiations broke down due to financial issues.[13] In December, shortly after Damien Comolli was appointed director of football at Anfield, the player was again linked to Liverpool.[14]
