Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has ruled out bringing Philippe Coutinho back to Anfield.

There have been a few whispers that the Reds could be interested in a deal for the Brazilian who has had a tough time since joining Barcelona in January 2018.

However, Klopp says that while he’s a big fan of the Brazilian, there is no chance of him coming back to Merseyside.

“I like Phil, I think he’s a fantastic footballer and all that stuff, but it would be a big, big, big, big, big, big, big, big-money signing and it’s not our year for that.

”It’s just not possible. As I said, having him would make each team better -- us included -- but I really hope that he finds his luck at Barcelona.”

Coutinho’s future remains the subject of some speculation, and it’s unclear if he will still be at the club next season.

There have been rumors Barcelona would allow him to leave if they received a decent offer, with Paris Saint-Germain appearing his most likely destination.
