If you were tired of Neymar being involved in Barcelona’s attempt at Philippe Coutinho, fear no longer, the transfer deadline nears.

Neymar was asked about Coutinho’s state of mind regarding his up in the air transfer status after Brazil’s 2-0 win over Ecuador, and the Brazilian didn’t mind at all sharing a candid answer.

"Unfortunately, instead of being a happy time for him [Coutinho], for his family, it's a moment of anguish, disappointment and sadness. I like to see him happy because he is a teammate and a friend that I've had for a long time.”

"He was rewarded with a goal today, for his and our joy."

Barcelona are still reportedly chasing after Coutinho, and while it seems to be clear to everyone else that Liverpool won’t sell, they keep giving poor Coutinho hope.

Apparently the lad isn’t taking it well at all. He really wants to be a Barcelona player, and it appears that the Liverpool owners are just asking too much.
