However, the report states that the number doesn’t reach Liverpool’s valuation of Coutinho as it: “does not reach 150 million euros including variables”.
Since Barcelona are on a clock, it doesn’t makes much sense to keep bidding beneath the price that Liverpool have set.
But yet, here we are, with Barcelona reportedly still offering less than Liverpool are willing to sell for once again.
Earlier reports from Sport suggested that Liverpool were waiting on selling Coutinho until they had a deal in place for Monaco’s Thomas Lemar - a deal that will not happen now.
As I have said before, Lemar is the man who I most certainly believe should be the player Barcelona move for.
But it appears that as the deadline grows closer, Barcelona are still hoping the Brazilian magician makes his way to the Camp Nou.
