The Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona saga is finally looking look it might reach a conclusion soon, but the latest update is pretty interesting stuff indeed.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Coutinho is so keen to get the move done he is willing to dig deep into his own pocket and pay €15 million to help seal the deal.

Barca will still pay €110m plus €40m but Coutinho will top up the fee with Liverpool demanding more, after the Nike ‘leak’ and also insisting that is the current market value.

The report also claims that Coutinho has turned down better offers from both Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

They sat it is Coutinho’s dream to play at Barcelona with Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi, Paulinho and Andres Iniesta and to try and win trophies.

Finally, MD also report that Liverpool jetted off to Dubai last night for a warm weather training camp, after their FA Cup win over Everton, without Coutinho.
