The report does however say that Barcelona are “not attracted” by the offer and are looking to offload the Brazilian via a permanent transfer.
Imagine if Michael Edwards pulled this off…that statue will definitely be getting built. We think we’d like to have Coutinho back at Liverpool. The guy’s a world class footballer; yes he’d have a lot of grovelling to do, but all would be forgiven when he bends one into the top corner at the Kop end.
