Barcelona have already seen a bid of 80 million euros for Philippe Coutinho rejected, but the story doesn’t seem to end anytime soon as the club are allegedly preparing a better bid. According to reports in Spain, the Liverpool man has already agreed a deal to join the Spanish giants and that is why the club is more confident on getting him.
The club have reportedly travelled to England to negotiate with Liverpool on the Philippe Coutinho deal. This is coming amidst statements which Jurgen Klopp has made about the Brazilian leaving the Anfield. The coach has said his man will not leave Liverpool this summer.
Barcelona seem to be very desperate to bring Coutinho to Spain in order to help prevent Neymar from leaving as he is not very happy with the absence of Brazilian influence in the dressing room. Barcelona believe if they can bring Coutinho, it might make Neymar more happy and comfortable, leading to him staying.
Of course, the 25-year old has been in sensational form and that is the main reason why the Catalan side are interested in his services. Last year, Philippe Coutinho made 31 appearances for Liverpool in the Premier League and netted 13 times, providing 7 assists.
Until the deal is done, one can never be sure of anything as the transfer window has proven in the past. So we can only wait and see what happens in the coming days.
