Transfer Latest: Coutinho Pushes for January Barcelona Move

Phiilippe Coutinho has repeated his insistence to trade Liverpool for Barcelona in a potential deal that would comfortably surpass the British transfer record.

Given Coutinho’s attitude and application since submitting a transfer request last summer, the play maker feels it is only fair for the Reds to accept to accede to his request to leave should they receive a significantly improved proposal that would surpass Paul Pogba’s ¬£89m move from Juventus to Manchester United.

Reports have it that Liverpool unsuccessfully tried to alter Coutinho’s mind by presenting multiple incentives and a greater wage packet to their highest earner.

Barca’s long-term vision of building around the virtuoso is too attractive for him to ignore and, having won no trophies during his spell at Anfield despite coming close, he believes he owes it to himself to take the next step in his career – a decision encouraged by family members.

Coutinho’s camp, pushing the Catalan club’s objective, have worked tirelessly to erode the “definite stance” Liverpool adopted in the last window.

The Merseysiders are more open to their two-time Player of the season’s departure if Barca, who are having to navigate financial constraints, replace their bluster with a blockbuster offer.
