TRANSFERS: Liverpool snubbed former star Coutinho

Share This Post

According to the Daily Mirror, Liverpool told former star Philippe Coutinho they were not interested in re-signing him when he contacted the club regarding a potential transfer.

Life hasn’t exactly gone to plan for Coutinho since leaving Liverpool for the bright lights of Catalunya in 2018.

He’s currently on-loan with German giants Bayern Munich but the Bundesliga champions have indicated they will not trigger the nine figure option to buy clause in the agreement.

Instead, Coutinho will head back to Barcelona where he will immediately be shopped around as the Catalans look to raise some funds to help in their pursuit of Lautaro Martinez and Neymar Jr.

As a result, the Brazilian is looking at his options. He seems to favour a move back to the Premier League and, as expected, Liverpool were the first name linked.

Coutinho reportedly wanted to make the move back to Anfield but the interest in reuniting is not mutual.

The Brazilian does have other options though, with Liverpool’s Merseyside neighbours Everton linked as well as fellow Premier League clubs Leicester City and Chelsea.

Newcastle United, who are seemingly on the verge of a takeover that would see them become the world’s richest club, have also been linked.

Barcelona obviously want to sell Coutinho but say they are open to letting him leave on loan again, only this time any loan deal would need an obligation to buy rather than an option.

Currently, TransferMarkt value Coutinho at £50m, over £100m less than Barcelona paid to bring him to the Camp Nou two years ago.
