Klopp discussed Barca with Coutinho

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed he has spoken with Philippe Coutinho regarding the Brazilian’s links to Barcelona.

Reports on Friday claimed the Blaugrana were willing to pay up to €80m for the former Inter playmaker, with the English giants not entertaining the idea of a transfer.

"That's not for you," Klopp told reporters after being pressed on details of his conversation with the 25-year-old.

"Of course we have spoken. We were seven days pretty much all the time together and we found a moment when we could speak.

"Everybody knows Philippe Coutinho is a key player for us. I know he feels completely more than fine, comfortable in Liverpool. He loves the club, he loves the city. All of that is clear.

"But that he's able to play tonight in a very difficult moment in the pre-season, and after all the sessions, it's good to see and it shows his big potential."
