10 May 2017

PHILIPPE COUTINHO wants to quit Liverpool for Barcelona, according to reports in Spain.

On Tuesday Sport state Liverpool will be demanding €90m, and above, for a transfer to happen this summer.

Liverpool tied Coutinho down to a new five-year contract in January and had rebuffed a €30 million approach from Paris Saint-Germain last summer.

Barcelona have seemingly been linked with Philippe Coutinho on a regular basis for the past few years.

And yet, there has never been any real reason to suggest that Coutinho might actually have ideas of packing his bags and leaving Merseyside for, let's say, Barcelona.

Sport has been reporting in recent weeks that the Catalans officials are ready to fulfil the wishes of Neymar to bring the former Espanyol star back to La Liga ahead of the 2017-2018 campaign.

Spanish publication Sport claims that the Brazilian playmaker has "said yes" to a move to the Catalan club this summer.

However, Sport adds that the deal won't be as straightforward as Jurgen Klopp's side have slapped a staggering €90m asking price on his head to begin the negotiations.

And the match proved to be as competitive as any Premier League fixture, with Wijnaldum having to fend off a swarm of youngsters with just ball control at one point, while Coutinho also appears in a defensive capacity, clearing off his own line.
