Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho has informed the club that he would like to join Barcelona.
That’s according to Sky Sports, who are claiming that their “sources” have informed them that the Brazil international is keen to make the switch.
They are reporting that Coutinho has informed the club that Barcelona is the only club he would leave Anfield for.
But, despite the desire to move to the Camp Nou, the former Inter Milan midfielder will not rock the boat and kick up a stink over the situation.
Barcelona made an offer worth £72m almost three weeks ago, but they’ve not been back in touch since.
Reports today claim that they are ready to sanction a £120m offer after losing Neymar to Paris Saint Germain for close to £200m.
Liverpool do not want to sell Coutinho, so it will take a huge offer to change that mindset.
