LIVERPOOL WANTED €200 MILLION FOR COUTINHO

Liverpool were indeed willing to sell unhappy midfielder Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona on Friday but, only for a huge figure of €200 million about £185 million pounds sterling.


But Barcelona Director of Sports, Albert Soler ruled it out.
"On Friday, after weeks of offers and talks, Liverpool put a price on the player that we wanted [Coutinho]," he said alongside sporting director Robert Fernandez in a news conference on Saturday.
"A price of €200m and we decided we wouldn't do it. That's an example of the way football is now. This club and this board will not get involved in that, though. What's happened in the transfer market this summer has taken us to a totally different model of football which we're not used to."

So the great Catalan club were willing to use every underhand method to lure Coutinho to Spain but when it came to a large fee, they froze. Tough luck gentlemen. Liverpool are no longer a soft touch.
