I could still leave Liverpool — Coutinho

Barcelona Set to Press on With Coutinho Transfer Plans Despite Messi Reservations

Barcelona Set to Press on With Coutinho Transfer Plans Despite Messi Reservations

What will happen in January, we will know it in January. "I do not know if there will be an offer", explained the Brazilian, being completely frank.

'I am here [at Liverpool], we have a lot of games and I try to do my best to help'. There will be another move for Coutinho in January. It is the first time a country has had five representatives in the Champions League knockout stage, signaling a revival by the English after a period of underachievement since Chelsea was European champion in 2012.

Coutinho completed his hat trick three minutes later by firing in a shot that deflected off Salvatore Bocchetti and flew inside the near post, leaving Selikhov wrong-footed.

What cannot be disputed is that Barca could do with Coutinho.

Players were awarded a point each time they made their opponent laugh with the Christmas gags, with stars facing off across a table covered in festive decorations. And, would he be cheaper next summer, when Liverpool may be more willing to let him move to Spain? I see Barca's style, the truth is that it has the level.

Not exactly what Liverpool fans wanted to hear - but it gets worse.

"After heightened betting activity on Thursday, running in line with reports a deal has been agreed, we've decided to suspend betting on the 24-year-old making the switch to the Nou Camp in the upcoming transfer window". The Spanish giants have not given up their hopes of signing. Firmino raced onto the loose ball and curled home a shot with the outside of his right foot.

The negatives for Liverpool were the yellow card for Emre Can, which rules him out of the first leg of the last 16, and a first-half injury to left back Alberto Moreno that could force him out of the Merseyside derby against Everton on Sunday. Coutinho has responded well this season and insists any fresh speculation will not have a detrimental impact on his focus and form at Anfield. The Brazilian wants to depart Anfield, and it will be the best option for both the player and the club to part ways happily.

Coutinho remains unsure about his future as of yet, though he admitted recently that he was keen to join Barcelona.

"For sure this is my most important hat-trick".

Those pleas appear to have fallen on deaf ears, however, with Barcelona telling their superstar of their desire to reignite their interest in landing the Brazil international. Naive defending put paid to those hopes and Coutinho was Liverpool's conductor.
