Goal reporter Melissa Reddy agrees, and if Barca don’t recognise their pursuing a player who is quite literally ‘not for sale,’ at this point, we’re not sure they ever will.
The Spaniards are desperate to acquire Coutinho after losing Neymar and being humiliated by Real Madrid in the Super Cup – but they’ll have to turn their attentions elsewhere.
They’re bullying tactics are only going to make us less inclined to sell our no.10 next summer, in truth.
