Coutinho £90 million bid rejected by Liverpool.
Barcelona got their third bid for Coutinho rejected worth £90 million.
Their previous attempts of £72 million and £80 million was also rejected and the Kop strongly claimed that Coutinho is not for sale at any price.
The Brazilian playmaker is keen to leave but has not publicly spoke out to force out a move away from Anfield.
He is set to miss Liverpool opening Premier League fixture against Watford after suffered a back injury on Wednesday.
Similar to Alexis Sanchez situation, which the Chilean is set to miss out for two weeks due to abdominal strain.
Are both Arsenal and Liverpool trying to cover up some exclusive transfer news behind the scenes and by faking injury news to avoid discomfort rumors spreading like Neymar transfer saga that brought issues to Barcelona players.
Barcelona are very keen to sign Coutinho as the main replacement for Neymar as they see the style of play is very similar and suited to Barcelona system.
Klopp has publicly spoke about how Coutinho is not for sale for a number of times especially when the new season is so close and soon after, Champions League playoff against Hoffenheim.
The Spanish giant is very confident in landing the Brazilian but they would have to do it fast to avoid Coutinho being cup tied for the Champions League squad.
Which means, if Coutinho were to play against Hoffenheim next Wednesday, he is not applicable for Barcelona’s Champions League matches next season.
Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard described a move to Barcelona would be a dream move for the Brazillian.
He added that it would be very hard to reject Barcelona when they come calling.
Gerrard said he experienced it before with ex Liverpool teammate, Luis Suarez and Javier Mascherano who both left Liverpool for Barcelona.
Now that the new season is so close, Gerrard feels that Coutinho would have to be ready to “start a war” with Liverpool to force the move to Barcelona as the club is strongly oppose to the transfer.
Unless Coutinho express his desire to leave, he could still be staying at Liverpool probably for another season but the timing this time is the best now.
It will be difficult to move to Barcelona again after next season if the Catalans have already found a good replacement for Neymar.
