January is getting much closer, and with that more rumors of Philippe Coutinho’s impending unhappiness with Liverpool. He’s under contract till 2022 and wants to leave for Barcelona it seems, yet Liverpool seem to have no desire to grant him that wish.
“I do not know how the future is going to be,” said Coutinho.
“What will happen in January, we will know it in January. I do not know if there will be an offer.
“I am at Liverpool and I always do my best when I have the opportunity to play, respecting the jersey and the supporters.
“Last summer there was a job offer in the same way that happens with any employee and I was interested in it. Since I stayed, I have played with will and desire.”

The bottom line is that Liverpool have a number in their heads, and until Barcelona come close enough to that number to satisfy the Reds, Coutinho will stay in England. Nevertheless, his comments are fascinating as we near the transfer window.
