This is moving at pace, worryingly.
Sky Sports are claiming that a close family member of Coutinho has spoken to them about our no.10’s anger at Liverpool’s refusal to sell him to Barcelona.
Here’s what they reported just a few minutes ago:

This doesn’t necessarily mean he’s handed in a transfer request, though.
Liverpool are denying Sky Sports’ claim that he’s submitted one – but just hours after FSG released a statement claiming he’s not for sale – this is coming out…
We honestly don’t know what to believe.
