COUTINHO AGREES TO JOIN BARCELONA- REPORTS

According to the Spanish media outlets, Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho has reached an agreement to join La Liga giants Barcelona this summer.

The reports from Catalan radio station RAC1 claim that Barca have stepped up negotiations with the 25-year-old playmaker this week and an agreement is now in place between the player and the club.

Barca must now agree a transfer fee with Liverpool and as per the Mundo Deportivo, representatives from the Spanish club are in England for talks.

The Camp Nou side have already had a bid of €80m (£72m) rejected by the Merseyside giants but an improved offer will be made. It is believed that Barcelona’s move for Philippe Coutinho is partly motivated by their desire to prevent Neymar from joining PSG.

However, Jurgen Klopp insists that the Brazil international will not be sold this summer.

The German manager told Liverpool Echo: ‘The problem with these things is that whatever I say it always leaves a little bit of speculation.

‘If I say he is not for selling, he is not for selling. There is nothing else to say. It’s a club decision, it’s my decision. That’s how it is.

‘That is so that we can end the speculation and not talk about anything else.

‘With Suarez I was far away. When the club sold Sterling I was maybe the last to know about it. So those situations have nothing to do with this one. If I say he is not for selling, he is not for selling. There is nothing else to say. It’s a club decision, it’s my decision. That’s how it is.
