Coutinho responds to Barcelona speculation

    Coutinho played a key role in securing fourth place in the Premier League

    Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho has spoken about the reported interest from Barcelona in his services.

    The Brazil international has been consistently linked with a switch to the Spanish giants over the past year or so, with several former stars urging him to make the move.

    But the twenty-four year old has described talking about the speculation as “complicated” following a question during a press conference while he is on international duty.

    “Talking about this is complicated.” he said.

    “I have a contract with my club and it’s long so my focus is on the present and the national team.” he added.

    Coutinho is reported to have already agreed to join the La Liga club and has even accepted an offer of a contract, according to reports coming out of Spain via Sport.

    They claim that Liverpool want a fee of around £75m to allow the twenty-four year old to make the switch.
