Clutching at Straws?

Clutching at Straws?

It remains to be seen whether Barcelona do sign Philippe Coutinho this summer.

Depending upon which news source you stumble upon, a deal to bring the 24-year-old to the Camp Nou is seen as a done thing but on the other hand the Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has dismissed such a deal out of hand.

However, one English media vehicle, the Express, has printed some comments attributed to the player that suggest the player is,

"Happy a great club has an interest."

Half of the battle when it comes to moves like this whereby the outcome could go either way, is getting the player on side, could that happiness expressed by Coutinho be a sign he`d like to join Barcelona or am I just clutching at straws?
