Barcelona set sights back on Philippe Coutinho

  • Philippe Coutinho

"We must forget about the price paid for Neymar last summer", Grau added, when discussing the Barcelona's potential moves in the transfer market. 222 million was raised, but net it brought us 198.

The Catalan giants saw three attempts to sign the playmaker rebuffed in the summer, including a final bid of £117million, the Reds holding firm despite the 25-year-old submitting a transfer request.

Their resistance was greeted with frustration, but Barcelona are clearly not ready to end...

Liverpool, however, strongly denied this version of events and insisted that their definitive stance that Coutinho would end the summer transfer window at Anfield had never changed.

Trump Nominates Kirstjen Nielsen As Next Homeland Security Secretary
The White House says President Donald Trump will nominate Kirstjen Nielsen to serve as his next secretary of Homeland Security. The White House confirmed earlier reports by The Washington Post and Politico that Nielsen was next in line for the position.


The latest report from Mundo Deportivo indicates that Couts made a verbal agreement with Liverpool to leave in January.

It is the rekindling of the pursuit of Coutinho, though, that worries Liverpool supporters, who have already been dealt a huge blow this week with Sadio Mane being ruled out for 10 games with a hamstring tear.

"We are ready to sign Coutinho or any other player the technical staff request in the winter window", Grau said. If this is the case [If Barcelona sign players in January] we have to generate income and maybe someone have to leave. We are putting all the resources of the club [to improve the squad].

Grau announced a predicted record revenue of €897m for this season, an increase of €189m on last season, partly thanks to Neymar's move to Paris Saint-Germain.
