Barcelona are reportedly leaking information about a transfer for Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho in a bid to sign the Brazilian in the transfer window.
The Camp Nou club, which had three bids rejected in the summer for the 25-year-old, have allegedly turned to detailing news about Coutinho’s transfer to Spain in their latest attempt to sign him.
The report from Spanish source El Confidencial says that Josep Maria Bartomeu, Barcelona’s club president, has told other officials behind the scenes about the move.
The source also claims that Liverpool are expected to sell Coutinho to the Spanish giants after purchasing former Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk for £75m.
Should Barcelona consider another move for the Brazilian, the club will have to pay upwards of £100m.
