Barcelona are planning a meeting with the agent of Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho.
That’s the latest news coming out of Spain, with Mundo Deportivo claiming that the Spanish giants remain determined to broker a deal for the Brazil international.
Liverpool rejected three bids for the twenty-five year old in the Summer and insisted that he was not for sale and refused to enter any negotiations over an exit.
Coutinho handed in a transfer request in order to try and force through a move to the Camp Nou, but the club stood firm and told him that he would not be able to make an exit.
Barcelona have continued to pursue the former Inter Milan player since the transfer window closed and are expected to try and sign him in the new year when the transfer window opens.
Liverpool are likely to again reject any approach for the player most consider to be the best in Jurgen Klopp’s squad – especially if the team remain involved in the Champions League at that point.
Coutinho is likely to push for the move again next Summer after being denied the chance to make a childhood dream come true, but his attitude since returning to the squad cannot be questioned.
It doesn’t appear that will stop Barcelona from pursuing him through the media and his agents.
