Coutinho Price Claim Discrepancy

Coutinho Price Claim Discrepancy

Although the deal that brought Philippe Coutinho to the Camp Nou from the Premier League club Liverpool, is done and dusted, it appears that the two clubs will never be the best of friends.

After the deal had been done, with Barcelona agreeing a total price of £142 million, with £105 million of that being paid up front, it was suggested that deal had been secured on the back of, with the Barcelona vice-president having remarked that "there had been a significant reduction" in the price Barcelona had been quoted in the summer, said to be £176.5 million.

But, according to the well-respected news source, The Times, Liverpool are refuting such a suggestion, implying that Coutinho wasn`t available for purchase in the summer and the only price Liverpool have ever asked for was the £142 million Barcelona paid.

With relations, seemingly, a little frosty, it`d certainly be interesting if the two clubs were to meet in the Champions League any time soon!
