Liverpool not selling Brazilian Philippe Coutinho, say club owners

Liverpool not selling Brazilian Philippe Coutinho, say club owners

Joyce also revealed Coutinho's request was made after he turned up to training at Melwood as usual this morning.

Liverpool have revealed their stance on the playmaker after releasing a statement on their official website on 11 August.

Barca have plenty of money to spend, having sold Coutinho's compatriot Neymar to Paris St Germain for a world-record £200.6m last week.

However, he was left out of Liverpool's squad for a friendly win over Athletic Bilbao in Dublin at the weekend while a back injury seems certain to sideline him from the club's opening Premier League match at Watford tomorrow.

"I've said it already a few times, but maybe it's not been 100% clear, but now you can read it - maybe that's the difference!", he noted. "And that is the way it will go".


Meanwhile, there are other reports circling as well that the Reds are covering up the fact that Coutinho has handed a transfer request. We also advised our followers not to dismiss the claims that Sky Sports News published today in relation to the transfer request (as we know who their source was).

"He has tremendous love for the club and fans but, like Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez have pointed out in the past, Liverpool does not let its players leave on amicable terms".

He said: "As a player, it's very hard to turn down Barcelona or Real Madrid". That's how life is. "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".

"I don't think I ever told you anything about what I spoke about with the players, did I?"

Will Philippe Coutinho be announced as a Barcelona player anytime later next week or will we have to wait until the transfer deadline day to see the switch from Liverpool happening?
