Coutinho Going Nowhere; He’s Priceless, Klopp Tells Barca


Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has insisted that they will not consider an improved offer from Barcelona for Philippe Coutinho.

The Reds have already rejected an offer around £90m, but it is understood that Barca are prepared to pay up to £110m for Coutinho.

Spanish pundit, Guillem Balague believes the Catalan side will continue their pursuit till they get the Brazilian.

“They will try to come back because they’ve put a lot of effort into this one.

“They think they have a chance and that chance is that the player wants to go to Barcelona, but is seems like that will not be enough,” Balague said.

But Klopp has made it clear again that they are not a selling club.

“Liverpool is not a club that has to sell players. That is set in stone. So what they pay in the end doesn’t matter.

“From a financial standpoint, there is no price limit to let him go. No price at which we are ready to give in.

“Our goal is to have the best possible team. So we want to keep our guys and add new ones. That is our plan,” Klopp told Sky Germany.

The Liverpool manager added: “Today, no player on the planet is untouchable. But a transfer is also a question of timing and if you have the opportunity and the need to react to such a transfer.

“Also you have to ask, if you have the time to react. But just because of one request of one club, we don’t have to think about that. We are not in that situation.”
