    Coutinho has disappointed Klopp by making a transfer request

    Barcelona have made a third offer to Liverpool for Philippe Coutinho.


    That’s according to a report by Goal.com, in which it is claimed that the Catalans have upped their previous offer to €130m for the Brazilian international.

    The Spanish club have already seen two bids immediately rejected by Liverpool before Coutinho went on to hand in a transfer request last week in order to try and push through a move.

    But FSG released a club statement on Friday last week insisting that no offers would be considered for the ex-Inter Milan midfielder as they look to keep him at Anfield for the 2017/18 season.


    Barcelona appear to have decided to further test Liverpool’s resolve by pushing their offer over the £100m mark in order to try and secure the transfer of the twenty-five year old.

    There is plenty of unrest at the Camp Nou among supporters after they saw their side comprehensively beaten 3-1 on Sunday evening and then 2-0 in the return leg at the Bernabeu by rivals Real Madrid in the Spanish super cup.

    Coutinho’s fellow Brazilian Paulinho has been signed already this week, but the La Liga club want to make a statement for the future by signing the Liverpool midfielder.

    Borussia Dortmund forward Ousmane Dembele is also being heavily pursued.

    1. I am hoping that the Phillip Coutinho situation can be sorted out the sooner the better. The club must set an example to the game that a football club is bigger than the individual player. Phillip is on a 5 year contract and must be made to stay. He should be very carefull of his actions with the World Cup coming up at the end of the season. We will never be a top club if we keep selling our top players. Let’s get this sorted.
