Liverpool rule out Coutinho sale

Liverpool have categorically ruled out the sale of Phillipe Coutinho this summer amid reports he will join Barcelona, the club have confirmed.

The Brazilian international has been linked with a move to the Camp Nou and the English club reportedly knocked back a €100m offer for the former Inter playmaker earlier this week.

“We wish to offer clarity as regards our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho,” read a Liverpool statement.

“The club’s definitive stance is that no offers for Philippe will be considered and he will remain a member of Liverpool Football Club when the summer window closes.”

Coutinho, 25, was viewed as a primary transfer target for the Catalan club alongside Borussia Dortmund forward Ousmane Dembele following the sale of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month.
