Philippe Coutinho

Coutinho won't leave this January, it doesn't help either club.

 

Well it does help Barcelona

They settle the player in this year with the league just about won. They can use him to rest Dembele/Messi/Iniesta in league games. They start transitioning Iniesta out of the starting XI now with no pressure.Makes all the sense for them,just not for us

How can it not help Barca? He can’t play in the CL but he can play every other game.

 

We are the ones who it doesn’t make any sense for.

 

As I said I think we should do with Phil what we have done with Keita and fix the price and sign it all off for after our last game of the season

It would be 'nice' for them to have him now, but it's not an emergency, it's not even a priority.

 

I don't imagine he'll need much time to 'bed-in' with that team.

 

 

I'd only accept a sale in Jan if we were offered Turan on the cheap.  He might help us with the run-in this season, but wouldn't be an obstacle in terms of replacing him in the summer if it didn't work out.

 

From memory, I think he had made positive noises about us in the past.

£150m is hilarious.

 

We bought Salah and Mane for £70m combined.  Klopp is going to do some damage with that money.

 

And, by all accounts, Klopp is the one keen on selling Coutinho.

Just flip the circumstances.  We're ten points clear and Messi throws a strop, saying he only wants to play for LFC.  Still doesn't help us if we get him?

Should be 150m in pounds not Euros. If we manage to get shut of Markovic, Sturridge and Origi then that will be more.

That's like €10 in today's money.

Turan has been wasting away on the Barca bench pretty much since he joined them. I'm sure they'd be only too happy to get rid. I'm not sure he'd make a positive impact here either.

I'm glad if true as various reports are suggesting that the owners have left the entire matter to Klopp and he's calling the shots this time round. There're still a lot of ifs and buts in this saga though. I have my doubts that Barcelona will meet our financial requirements, banking still on Coutinho's strong desire to force his way out as the decisive factor in thier favour. They're arrogant gits. But if they do come up with a package acceptable to us, Klopp has ample time to get in Lemar who reportedly favours us over the likes of Scum and Chelsea.... doomsday scenario averted.

Klopp expects Coutinho to be available for the Man City game on Jan 14 #LFC

 

The fucking balls of this guy.

 

Best signing we had in years.

It's nonsensical selling him now or agreeing a deal for the summer now. His value will increase in the summer.

 

I think we'll reject their bid.

The summer 6 months away. That's an eternity in modern football. No need to rush to market on this at all. I would send Nike a copy of Phil's contract, signed up to 2022, and suggest they stick a fucking Barcelona shirt on that. No deal now, not for Jan, and not for the summer. If they want him, they can come back in June when he will likely be worth even more.

Best to sell in January so it frees up the summer for Barca to go for Salah.

 

I don't think Salah is cut from the same cloth.

 

Salah is the sort of player who, if Barca offered £150m I'd hope the club told them to fuck off, or only sell at £250m.

 

Salah can be persuaded to stay, I don't think Coutinho can.

    • John Barnes says he does believe Liverpool will regret missing out on the signature of Timo Werner because he was not fully committed to the joining them.

      Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign the RB Leipzig striker, despite the widely held view that the Reds were in prime position to seal the transfer.
        The news may have come as a shock as well as some disappointment to Liverpool fans who were looking forward to have another class forward joining the ranks.

      But it seems the only set of individuals not surprised were the club hierarchy themselves who were not rushed into reacting and engage in a bidding war with the West London club.

      John Barnes believes there is a clear reason for that as he explained to BonusCodeBets(via The Mirror).

      “Liverpool want players that want to play for Liverpool. I'm sure a lot of people were after [Virgil] van Dijk, but he wanted to come to Liverpool.

      "If they don't get a move on and Manchester City, Arsenal or Chelsea come in for him and he decides to go there, that's not the sort of player you want anyway.

      "Because he'll just go where they're going to pay him more money or he wasn't that committed to wanting to come to play for Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

      Jürgen Klopp does things in a very measured and strategic way, almost testing the nerve of the player regarding how much he wants to play for the club.

      Patience is the key and when they do sign on the dotted line, Klopp doesn’t just throw them to the wolves, instead he waits for the right time to bed them into the lineup.

      It could be the case that Klopp believed that Werner would grow impatient with that type of process, and therefore he was not the right man for the club.  

      Barnes believes that Werner may have failed the Klopp test and cited recent examples of World Class talents who were more than willing to join the Reds.

      "I don't think they have to get a move on, they didn't get a move on with Van Dijk or Alisson and a lot of people wanted them to, it's because they wanted to come. 

      “This is a test to see if he really wants to come and play for Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

      “Considering how things have panned out it seems Werner didn't pass Klopp's test, but at the same time Liverpool - who didn't meet the deadline - failed the forward's too.”

      Former Liverpool captain Jamie Redknapp agreed with his former club not purchasing Werner and questioned where he would fit in the lineup.

      “Who is going to replace. He’s a really good player, but we don’t know right now, is he better than Mane, Firmino, Salah?

      “It’s one of the best front three in the world right now so he doesn’t want to go somewhere and be a number two or a sub.

      “Will they regret it? You don’t know but that is what he has got to do. He has got to make Liverpool regret that decision, or at least make them think ‘I wish we had signed him.

      “For Liverpool, they have got to look at it and think, if you bring someone like him in it could upset the balance of them and maybe they might think, ‘would it be worth the risk to bring in another player.

      “They have three top-class players who don’t get many injuries, why risk upsetting balance.”
