Philippe Coutinho 'wants January move to Barcelona'

  • Bad news for Liverpool fans as Coutinho still wants to leave
  • Could a move happen as soon as January?
  • The Brazil international is back in the starting XI at Anfield, for now

Despite staying at Liverpool after the summer transfer window, Philippe Coutinho is keen to leave the club as soon possible with Barcelona likely to renew their interest.


As was much discussed, Coutinho nearly left the club for Spain after several bids of around £100m. Liverpool held firm though and held onto their star man, much to the suprise of millions of football fans around the world.

It was clear that the player wanted to leave and the money raised could have been invested in improving Jurgen Klopp's squad, but they clearly felt he was more important than any potential new signings.

You could certainly see why this was the case at the weekend during the 3-2 victory at Leicester. Coutinho was the stand out player for Liverpool and in truth, he's their only world-class talent in the current squad.

Speaking after the match, Klopp spoke about having his main man back, saying: "It says a lot about the relationship between our supporters and Phil," said the German, after watching him fire home a first-half free-kick.

"When he came on for 15-20 minutes nobody knew how Anfield would react. Anfield pushed and there that’s what I really love in football. 

"Maybe we don’t always agree in each moment like people are, but when we have a short minute to think then we remember we are family.

"That’s how they react and I really loved it.

"That helped Phil a lot so he can play football, concentrate on football and he can perform."

Unfortunately for Liverpool fans though, it seems as though they may have to make the most of Coutinho over the next two or three months.
