Philippe Coutinho sends transfer message to Liverpool FC chiefs – report
Philippe Coutinho wants assurances that he will be allowed to leave Liverpool FC for Barcelona next summer, say reports
Philippe Coutinho wants assurances from Liverpool FC chiefs that he will be allowed to sign for Barcelona in the summer transfer window, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that the 25-year-old Brazilian playmaker wants an agreement to be put in place to allow him to move to Camp Nou next summer.
Coutinho was relentlessly linked with a move to Camp Nou in the final few weeks of the summer transfer window but a move to Spain failed to materialise as Liverpool FC opted to keep hold of their talismanic attacker.
The same report says that Barcelona are likely to return with a fresh offer to try and sign Coutinho in the January transfer window after Liverpool FC rejected three bids last summer.
And it is claimed that Coutinho wants guarantees that he will be able to sign for the Spanish giants in the summer once the transfer window opens at the end of the season.
Coutinho has proved his worth to Liverpool FC in recent weeks with a string of sparkling attacking displays for Klopp’s men.
The Reds will return to Premier League action on Wednesday night when they host West Bromwich Albion at Anfield.
