BREAKING: Philippe Coutinho Is Staying At Liverpool

Posted by

According to Liverpool and Fenway Sports Group, Philippe Coutinho won’t be leaving the club in this transfer window.

The group made the announcement in a press release that read, “No offers for Philippe will be considered & he will remain a member of Liverpool Football Club when the summer window closes.”

Coutinho joined Liverpool from Inter Milan for £8.5million in 2013 and has been heavily inked with a move to Barcelona this summer.

The Reds are said to have dismissed a £90million offer from the Catalan giants, who have money to burn after selling Neymar to Paris St Germain for world-record figure last week.

Barca had already had a £72million offer for the Brazilian turned down, with Reds boss Jurgen Klopp going on record to say his prize asset is not for sale.

Despite struggling with an ankle injury last season, he still scored 14 goals and remains a key part of Klopp’s squad for the campaign ahead.

Klopp remained tight-lipped over Coutinho’s future, saying only that his squad was “in a good shape” ahead of the new season.

Speaking as the club announced Western Union as their shirt sleeve sponsor, Klopp gave an upbeat summary of how he was feeling about preparations for the new campaign.

But he did not make any specific reference to Coutinho and exited the media event before it was opened up for questions.
