Coutinho Promised To Barcelona In January Transfer Market?

The Liverpool president has reportedly pledged to Philippe Coutinho that he will be allowed to join Barcelona in the January transfer window, so the Catalan giants can deliver a reasonable offer

The Brazilian made headlines in the summer transfer market this year after asking to be sold to Camp Nou following a big interest in Blaugrana to get his services.

But Liverpool are reluctant to part with their star players and reject all Barca’s efforts, including an offer in the region of € 114 million. Barca will likely still catch Coutinho in the next transfer market, and Coutinho was believed still eager to leave to Spain.

And Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo claimed that Liverpool’s top brass was finally ready to let the 25-year-old leave Anfield. Mentioned Coutinho previously reluctant to play in the Champions League for Liverpool this season because it means he will not be able to represent Barca in the same competition if he moved in January next.

And to make the Brazilian willing to play in European competition, the Liverpool leadership promised to let him move to La Liga next year. The singer nicknamed The Little Magician is reportedly agreeing to Liverpool’s wish despite representing the club in a Champions League match against Sevilla and Spartak Moscow.

Coutinho knows he can not play for Barca in the Champions League side this season, but that does not matter as long as he can surely join the Camp Nou. The former Internazionale player is now hoping Liverpool hold on to their promise and sell it to Barca when the January transfer window opens.

Mundo Deportivo said that Coutinho remained in touch with Barca and the club wanted to complete the transfer deal as soon as possible, as Paris Saint-Germain also showed interest.

The Ligue 1 giants are eager to bring Coutinho to the French capital. But due to Financial Fair Play regulations, they have to wait until next summer to reach an agreement with the Reds. (Source: Express, Mundo Deportivo)
