Philippe Coutinho asks to leave Liverpool

Philippe Coutinho asks to leave Liverpool”

With the Reds' ownership professing their insistence that Coutinho will also be staying, Liverpool's Spanish-language Twitter account could not resist a jibe.

Liverpool's owner had stated: "We wish to offer clarity as regards our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho".

Even if English football club Liverpool fails to buy a defender this summer, team coach Jurgen Klopp said he won't have a problem as he is happy with Liverpool's current defensive options.

"That's how life is", Klopp said at a news conference on Friday, a day before Liverpool begins the Premier League season with a game at Watford. "Coutinho has tremendous love for Liverpool fans but like Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez have pointed out in the past, Liverpool do not let players leave on amicable terms".

Liverpool ruined plans to present Philippe Coutinho as a Barcelona player today, according to El Periodico.

Barcelona has made two offers for Coutinho, the latest reportedly being 100 million euros. However, Liverpool have stated repeatedly via Klopp that Coutinho is not for sale.

"Sanchez and Coutinho fall into the same bracket for me - if you lose them, you might as well pack your bags and go home now". So what they pay in the end doesn't matter.

Speaking on Wednesday as the club announced Western Union as their shirt sleeve sponsor, Klopp told reporters that "everybody was really happy" that they finished in the top four last season. "It's not about that in this moment, Phil is not available for us, and that for me is the bigger issue, that he's not able to play now".

Coutinho, was signed by Liverpool for £8.5 million in January 2013 and signed a five-year deal which did not include buy-out clause. I understand that a third Barcelona bid is now imminent and they are set to offer in excess of £100million over the weekend.

"If we bring in players it's because I like and want them", Klopp added.
