Messi and Luis Suarez’ phone call to Philippe Coutinho
Philppe Coutinho has a lot of respect for both Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp. He remains grateful to the club for showing so much faith in him after signing him from Inter Milan.
And he would have loved his exit to be on better terms instead of an open confrontation.
Barcelona have made a really reasonable offer to Liverpool for the player. But the Anfield club have said their star is not for sale and made a mockery of the transfer talks after taking just 35 minutes to reject a 100 million euros offer.
Left with no other option, the player has now handed in a transfer request. (Read here)
Coutinho showed his seriousness by sending the official request himself instead of going through his representative.
His latest action has angered the Liverpool fans who say it was disrespectful he sent an email and did not hand it in personally.
The 25-year-old has played it cool with the Reds, and Spanish radio, COPE reports of a phone call from Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez to Coutinho.
Coutinho and Suarez have an excellent relationship after spending time together at Liverpool.
And after failing to convince Neymar to remain, the two Barcelona stars are hopeful they can play their role in landing a fresh and sensational talent for Barcelona.
