Barcelona to submit final Coutinho bid

Barcelona will submit their final bid for Philippe Coutinho this week.

Reports over the weekend had claimed that the Catalan club had set Liverpool a Sunday deadline to come to an agreement, although those reports now seem to have been wide of the mark.

Various sources are now suggesting that Barcelona will make a fourth and final offer for the Brazilian, for around £136m.

The offer will include an initial payment of £100m, with further add ons of a further £9m for each year Barcelona qualify for the Champions League over the next four years – something which is almost a certainty.

Jurgen Klopp has been insistent that the playmaker will not be sold, although admitted the decision is up to the owners.

Coutinho is currently out of action with an apparent back injury, by when asked by the media if he would be welcomed back into the squad, Klopp said:

“Of course. You ask if everything is OK between me and him. I answer of course. Yes. Absolutely.”

The player has handed in a transfer request as he looks to force through the move to the Nou Camp.
