Philippe Coutinho has told Liverpool that he is willing to stay at Anfield for another season – as long as he is allowed to join Barcelona next summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Brazilian playmaker has told the Reds that he would be willing to play for the Merseyside outfit this term but wants them to agree to let him leave to move to Camp Nou at the end of the campaign.

The same report says that Coutinho is willing to put aside his differences with the Liverpool board and Jurgen Klopp and be a fully committed member of the squad, as long as it is made clear that he can sign for Barcelona next summer.

The story says that Coutinho’s advisors will look to “press” the Reds into an agreement for the Brazilian to secure his dream transfer to Barcelona in 12 months’ time.

Coutinho’s future has been a relentless source of speculation throughout the summer after he emerged as a target for the Spanish club.

The Reds are reported to have already rejected a number of bids for Coutinho from the Spanish club, but Liverpool are under no pressure to sell, because the midfielder only signed a new five-year contract back in January.
