What the hell is going on…
Liverpool fans went into meltdown this lunchtime when Sky Sports reported that Coutinho has handed in an official transfer request.
Here’s what broke on the news channel:

But trusted Liverpool sources such as James Pearce and Melissa Reddy are claiming it’s entirely false.
They’ve contacted the club and the Echo has published a piece suggesting the transfer request is completely false.
“Liverpool insist they have not received a transfer request from Philippe Coutinho,” they wrote.
“Reports suggested that the Brazil international had taken steps to try to force a move to Barcelona after owners Fenway Sports Group declared he would be staying put during the current window.
“However, the Reds are adamant that as it stands no transfer request has been submitted.”
Now, we can only wait for an official statement from the club, just hours after FSG released one claiming the Brazilian is not for sale at any price this summer.
