Liverpool Star Philippe Coutinho ‘To Be Unveiled By Barcelona On Friday’ As £148M Deal Draws Closer
Philippe Coutinho will be unveiled as a Barcelona player on Friday, according to reports.
Reports suggest that Barcelona’s final bid of £148million for the Brazilian star has been accepted by Liverpool.
The Catalan giants have been desperate to rope in Coutinho after losing his international team-mate Neymar to Barcelona on a world-record £198m move.
Coutinho has handed in a transfer request and is yet to play a game for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool this season due to a back injury.
But shockingly, he has been declared fit for Brazil’s World Cup qualifiers against Ecuador and Colombia.
Earlier, Liverpool owners had released an official statement stating that Coutinho is not for sale at any cost.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp also insisted that the Brazilian superstar will not be allowed to leave after Liverpool rejected Barcelona’s three back-to-back bids for Coutinho – the third one being a staggering £118m offer.
However, according to Yahoo Sport, Coutinho, who is on international duty, has been told that the Reds owners have finally accepted Barcelona’s latest £148million offer.
