Coutinho not for sale, Liverpool rejects Barcelona’s 100 million euros

Liverpool say that Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho is “definitively” not for sale.

On Wednesday, the Reds rejected a bid of 100 million euros (£90m) from Barcelona for the 25-year-old.

Barca’s second bid, which was rejected immediately, comprised an initial £76.8m plus £13.5m in add-ons.

In a statement on Friday, the club’s owners Fenway Sports Group club said its “definitive stance” was that “no offers will be considered”.

It added: “Philippe will remain a member of Liverpool Football Club when the summer window closes.”

Coutinho with Liverpool Manager

Coutinho, who scored 14 goals last season, signed a new five-year deal in January, which did not include a release clause. He joined Liverpool from Inter Milan for £8.5m in 2013.

Manager Jurgen Klopp said the Reds were not “a selling club” when Barca’s previous £72m offer was rejected in July.

Barcelona have also had a bid rejected for Borussia Dortmund’s 20-year-old forward Ousmane Dembele since they sold Brazil forward Neymar to Paris St-Germain for a world record £200m last week.

The German club confirmed they met Barca representatives but the offer did not meet their valuation of the France international.
