Jurgen Klopp, the board of directors, the owners of the club, they’ve all been saying that Philippe Coutinho is not for sale this summer, at any price, but there is at least one person who has earned the right to have an opinion on anything Liverpool who believes the club should definitely take up Barcelona’s offer.
Players normally get their way at the end of the day and with the sort of cash that is being offered now, I’d be snapping their hand off
Graeme Souness told talkSPORT, talking about the Catalans’ bids for the Brazil international. According to reports, Barcelona are about to make a fourth one, offering an amount in the region of €140 million(!!).
That kind of money you can’t say no to. Is he that good? For that sort of money you want a player that is a game-changer, the difference in big games, and I don’t see him as that
the former Liverpool captain said, trying to put things into perspective.
Yeah, he is an attractive little footballer, he is neat and tidy on the ball, he wrong-foots people, he scores some wonder goals, but at that sort of level I would take the money. I don’t see him being a Suarez or a Neymar
Souness also said. Last, when asked who he thinks is the most important player at Anfield these days, it didn’t take him more than a second to answer
that would be Sadio Mane.
