Latest Update on Coutinho to Barca Speculation

Latest Update on Coutinho to Barca Speculation

The closure of the summer transfer window has drawn a day nearer and still there is no really positive news about Philippe Coutinho joining Barcelona, from Liverpool.

However, with two weeks to go a lot can happen and with the Brazilian missing Liverpool`s Champions League qualifier, against Hoffenheim, with a supposed back injury, the neutral looking on from the outside might suspect Liverpool are protecting, what is a very valuable commodity, from getting injured.

Today, another slant on a possible deal has emerged in the media.

The good folk of the English news vehicle the Daily Express, have picked up on something published by the news source Diairi Gol, which infers Liverpool are looking at a player-plus-cash deal for Coutinho.

According to the referenced sources, Liverpool, if forced into doing a deal for Coutinho, would insist on the 29-year-old Barcelona midfielder, Ivan Rakitic, being included in the deal.

Whether there is any truth in that rumour we can only wait and see.

You email been wrong about everything else up to this point why would you be right this time. You are simply the unofficial mouthpiece of Barca designed to unsettle players under contract where the club do not wish to sell. This was done with Fabregas and now with Dembele and Coutinho. Sadly the victims of this are the players who put their necks on the block and are then exploited by Barca who then can dictate everything to them. Barca are simply the most wretched, self serving organisation in the world of sport. The amazing thing is that the Catalan people are nothing like the club that purports to represent them.
