Philippe Coutinho's move from Liverpool FC to FC Barcelona a done deal?

02 January, 2018, 12:47 | Author: Cary Erickson
  • Barcelona are plotting a fresh move for the Liverpool star after failing in the summer

To add an explosive amount of fuel to that fire, Nike's official website began to promote Barcelona shirts adorned with the "Magician's" name in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The January window opens on Monday, however and there is expectation that Barca will come back in for Coutinho, but according to Balague no progress has been made between the two parties.

Coutinho handed in a transfer request in a bid to force through a move to Barcelona last summer, with Liverpool turning down several offers for his services from the Spanish giants as they vowed to hang on to their star man.

Late last night, Nike, who also run Barcelona's online store, pushed an update live on their website.

But whatever the reason, it's high time Liverpool reported Barcelona over their antics over Coutinho.

Sky Sports pundit Guillem Balague has excellent connections at Liverpool.

There's still been no word from either club or from Nike, but a handful of journalists with connections to the Liverpool end have come out today with something of a collective shrug.

Noting that Barcelona's objective is to sign Coutinho and Antoine Griezmann in the summer, he believes Jurgen Klopp's recent comments may have signalled a change in tactics from the Reds.

"As there has been no new offer from FCB yet, we don't know what LFC's final stand". Not as it stands.
