Barcelona continue unsettling tactics but Liverpool will ignore latest Coutinho comments

Share

Coutinho remains firmly on Barcelona's agenda and they showed their hand on Wednesday, with chief executive Oscar Grau confirming it is their ambition to bring him to the Nou Camp.

Mundo Deportivo claims that the two parties reached an agreement in the summer in which the Merseysiders vowed that they will negotiate Coutinho's transfer to Barcelona if the player didn't refuse to play the Champions League for Jurgen Klopp's side during the first part of the season.

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu recently suggested that the club would not make a new attempt to sign him in January due to the Reds' high demands.

Who's moron here? Trump teases Tillerson over IQ
Naming former President Clinton's experience as a Rhodes Scholar, Jimmy Carter's work as a nuclear engineer and George H.W. Both Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were reportedly furious about the report. "He was wasting his time", Trump said.

From Barcelona's point of view, the Brazilian will be cup-tied in the Champions League, which means there will be little value in signing a player they can not feature in their most important competition.

Liverpool will continue to resist Barcelona's approaches for Philippe Coutinho.

The Spanish club failed with three bids for Coutinho last summer, the last worth £115 million, with Liverpool standing firm there is no price that will force a sale this season. There's no benefit to Liverpool agreeing to such a scenario, it would be naive, simply pushing the problem to January... unless it was an outright lie and they'll deal with the consequences after Christmas.

Blackburn responded to Twitter's decision by calling on her supporters to join her in " standing up to Silicon Valley ". Blackburn, who is running to replace the retiring Bob Corker , is instead trying to use the decision in her favor.

The 25-year-old made his return to the Liverpool starting line-up at the King Power Stadium last month and scored a brilliant free-kick in a 3-2 win at Leicester City.

Barcelona's summer interest appeared to have an affect on Coutinho.

It would be a big move, swapping his homeland for Brazil, but if Coutinho does move on he may find it hard to replace a man he is likely to idolise given the latter's own journey.
