Barca move back on for Coutinho

Barcelona's move for Philippe Coutinho of Liverpool is back on with reports claiming he has handed in a transfer request at Anfield.

The Catalan giants are desperately trying to replace Neymar, who has gone to PSG, and had hoped to land Coutinho from Liverpool but offers approaching £90m had been knocked back and the Reds issued a statement saying the Brazilian would not be sold this summer.

That looked as though it had ended the matter and Barca were turning their attentions elsewhere but all that changed on Friday afternoon with reports claiming the Brazilian has handed in a transfer request at Anfield.

Liverpool will still fight tooth and nail to keep the player but the writing is on the wall and a move for the player appears to be just a matter of time but he will not come cheap and the Blaugrana may end up having to spend almost half the £198m they got for Neymar on the Anfield ace.
