Liverpool will let Philippe Coutinho join Barcelona

Emirates

Barcelona might struggle to raise the winter funds it would require to tempt Liverpool into selling such a key figure halfway through the season, although claims of a "promise" between them and Coutinho would seek to unsettle any harmony. Those Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona rumours are resurfacing.

But Catalan outlet Mundo Deportivo reported on Wednesday that Coutinho has an agreement with Liverpool that will allow him to leave Anfield in January.

That was rejected by Liverpool and Barcelona chief executive Òscar Grau is managing the Merseyside club's expectations about the fee they will receive.

"We are ready to sign Coutinho or any other player during the January transfer window".

Coutinho failed to complete a high profile move to join Barcelona during the summer transfer window despite huge bids from the Catalan giants but nonetheless, the Brazilian global could still join the Spanish giants in January.

"Money, is there. What we want is to have the best team possible".

It's hardly surprising that Barcelona's interest in Coutinho hasn't wavered.

Yet despite Grau's comments, Spanish football expert Guillem Balague remains doubtful that Barça will actually submit a bid for the Brazilian in January.

"I would be gobsmacked if they consider doing business in January, absolutely gobsmacked".

"We must forget about the price paid for Neymar last summer", he added.

Coutinho has since found the back of the net in his next two games against Russian side Spartak Moscow and promoted side Newcastle United.
