Coutinho asks for CL exclusion?

Barcelona target Philippe Coutinho has reportedly asked Liverpool to exclude him from their Champions League squad.

The claim was made by BeIN Sports as Mundo Deportivo explains Coutinho “is very unhappy about the attitude of his team and Coach Jurgen Klopp for not letting him join Barca.”

The Reds have qualified for the Champions League group stage and would cup-tie the attacking midfielder if they played him in the competition.

However, the newspaper believes Liverpool will only sit down with the Blaugrana if they receive an offer of €120m.

Barca have already seen three bids for Coutinho knocked back, but they announced the signing of Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund on Friday evening.
