Jurgen Klopp joked about the media’s insistence in ‘seeing’ a possible deal between Liverpool and Barcelona over Philippe Coutinho, talking at the Press conference ahead of the Reds’ first Premier League match of the season, at Watford.
If FSG is saying something like this, then that’s the statement. I’ve said it already a few times, but maybe it’s not been 100% clear, but now you can read it – maybe that’s the difference!. That’s the way it will go and there’s nothing else to say about this
the German manager said, referring to the statement released by Fenway Sports Group (FSG), the company that own Liverpool.
We wish to offer clarity as regards to our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho. The club’s definitive stance is that no offers for Philippe will be considered and he will remain a member of Liverpool Football Club when the summer window closes
the statement read, putting an apparent end to Barcelona’s pursuit of the Brazil international, at least this summer.
According to reports, the Catalan club had not one, but two offers rejected by Liverpool, the second one in the region of €100 million.
