Barcelona will make another bid to sign Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho in January.
That’s according to chief executive Òscar Grau, who has stated that the Spanish club will attempt to secure the Brazilian’s signature when the transfer window opens in the new year.
The Catalan giants saw three bids immediately rejected by the Reds in the Summer as they sought to spend some of the cash they gained from selling Neymar to Paris Saint Germain in a deal worth around £200m.
And Grau has revealed that the La Liga leaders remain determined to persuade Liverpool to allow the former Inter Milan midfielder to make the move to the Camp Nou.
“We are ready to buy Coutinho in the winter market, or any player the technical staff request.” he said.
“But it is important to adjust ourselves, so if there are to be arrivals, there must be exits as well.
“We must forget about the price paid for Neymar last summer. After taxes we received about €188m in income and a direct financial impact on the club’s treasury of €144m.” he finished.
Liverpool won’t be concerned by Barcelona’s financial situation and are likely to reject any offers for Coutinho.
