  • Can'Coutinho is best I've seen

The Camp Nou side were desperate to land the 25-year-old Brazil worldwide in the summer window, with Coutinho himself attempting to force a deal through by telling the Reds he wanted to leave.

Liverpool were adamant throughout the off-season that Coutinho was going nowhere and, despite the player handing in a transfer request, that he was not for sale at any price.

Bad news, Liverpool fans.

Philippe Coutinho believes he will be allowed to make his Liverpool exit in the January transfer window and finally seal a switch to Barcelona, according to recent reports in Spain.

"We are ready to sign Coutinho or any other player".

Oscar Grau, Barcelona's chief executive, claimed at a press conference yesterday that the club would resurrect their interest in the Brazil playmaker.

And their third bid arrived less than 24 hours before Jurgen Klopp's side took on Crystal Palace, with the Catalan side clearly looking to force Fenway Sports Group's hand. We will be ready to recruit in January.


"The Coutinho-Barcelona link will not go away", he explained.

"It's quite clear that Barcelona do feel they need a strong midfielder in the Verratti mould, and a strong player like Coutinho".

Liverpool face United on Saturday knowing defeat would leave them ten points off the pace after just eight matches.

"I would be gobsmacked if they consider doing business in January, absolutely gobsmacked".

Saga transfer of Coutinho became the center of European public attention in the transfer market last summer.

At this stage of the season, the hope will be that Coutinho ignores Barcelona's advances and continues to focus on his form at Anfield.
