Coutinho has met with Barcelona representatives and agreed a prospective contract with the Spanish giants, claims Catalan Radio Station RAC1.
Their report says Barca sent a ‘delegation’ to England to meet our Brazilian’s representatives – and Coutinho has been tempted by the switch to arguably the world’s biggest club.
Liverpool though have already rejected a £72m bid from the Spaniards and have absolutely no intention of selling our best player – who signed a mammoth five year contract extension in January.
As we know though, players’ heads can be turned during the summer transfer window, but it’s imperative we hold on to our no.10.
If a relative minnow like Red Bull Leipzig can keep Naby Keita, then Liverpool, managed by Jurgen Klopp, have the pulling and financial power to keep Coutinho – regardless of how much Barca want him.
On top of this, we’d be sceptical that Coutinho had agreed any kind of personal terms, with Catalan media outlets notorious for stirring up trouble in an attempt to unsettle Barca’s targets.
We can hardly be angry though, considering we’ve done the exact same to Southampton and RB Leipzig all summer.
