BREAKING: Liverpool owners issue statement on Philippe Coutinho
Liverpool have had to hold talks with Barcelona this summer over the transfer of Philippe Coutinho.
After Neymar’s sale to Paris Saint Germain, Barcelona have 222 million euros to spend. And the Catalans are still interested in spending a significant portion of that on Coutinho.
But Jurgen Klopp has continued to insist that his star player is not for sale. And Liverpool’s owners, FSG, have shown support for their manager.
The statement read: “We wish to offer clarity as regards our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho.
“The club’s definitive stance is that no offers for Philippe will be considered and he will remain a member of Liverpool Football Club when the summer window closes.”
Liverpool recently reject over 100 million euros from Barcelona in a meeting that lasted just 35 minutes.
