Boss Ready to Offer €100million Star to Liverpool

Liverpool are maintaining a strong stance and are not ready to sell Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.

The Catalan giants came up with a mammoth third bid for the Brazilian international but the move was rejected by the Merseysiders.

According to Diario Gol, after the rejection of the bid, Josep Bartomeu has an option to close the signing of the former Inter Milan by offering Liverpool a player.

The Spanish source have mentioned that the Anfield club would accept a player plus cash deal and Jurgen Klopp would be extremely interested in signing Ivan Rakitic.

The Croatian international is considered a very important member of the team and it is stated that if signing Coutinho is a step forward for Barca then losing Rakitic would be a set-back.

In such a situation, Diario Gol have mentioned that Barca boss Valverde is ready to offer Andre Gomes to Liverpool. The Portuguese international did get some minutes in the Spanish Super Cup but did not feature last night in the La Liga.

Barcelona have an overcrowded midfield department with players like Busquets, Iniesta, Rakitic, Suarez, Rafinha, Alena and Sergi Roberto around as well. Gomes mostly warmed the bench last season and the club would not mind losing him.

The Euro 2016 champion joined the Spanish side last summer and has a release clause of €100million in his contract (FCBarcelona). He started 17 league games, scored 3 goals and provided 2 assists in the last campaign. In your opinion, should Klopp sign the 24-year-old midfielder?

    No. Liverpool have players of the same quality or even better than Andre Gomes. But if indeed Barcelona want to offer a player and cash to Liverpool, then Luis Suarez and 100 m Euro be the amount that Liverpool FC should demand. This view is because FC Barcelona considered a reserve player to be worth 100m Euro and that Barcelona needed Coutinho badly.

  2. Funnie says:

    No! We dont want Gomez, he is not good enough.
    If Barcelona insist on coutinho,because loosing him is much more than a step backwards for lfc this summer… then we must get a suitable replacement, so klopp should also insist on Rakitic and cash or barca should forget about signing Philip this summer.

  4. Edson says:

  6. chris says:

    imagine liverpool that won’t even get close to any trophy is also dragging to keep a player they can’t hold for long

  7. Felix says:

    Let him go, u can’t keep an unhappy player,OK just let him go and buy draxler, vvd, and a box to box defensive midfielder OK

  8. ATB says:

    Silly talk when you hope to have Suarez + 100 € euros

  9. mick says:

    mmm we will glady give you our want away player for messi or suarez or busquets and a lot of cash you need players badly and so do we liverpool will never be the kings of europe if we keep handing you our best talent so if you want im offer us a crazy deal or move on

    On my own opinion, I would suggest FSG should consider a deal for coutinho in the region of £130m it’s even far better deal, then later get Draxler, Costa, VVD, nd let’s move on with our game. No wasting of time dis tym. Remember Man-u also is on Draxler too. Let’s get a deal done fast please.

  11. Mapera says:

    I think Rakitic plus good cash would be a Nice Deal. We can let go of Phill, Cause we also need good players of that quality.

  12. Ashley says:

    I understand some Fans are unhappy about the possibility of Coutinho leaving the club but don’t blame Klopp and FSG as they don’t want to lose the guy but Coutinho is the one who desperately wants the move to the point where he has told klopp allegedley that he won’t put on a Liverpool shirt again until he gets his Move so what the club have to do is get the best deal possible which isn’t what Barcalona are offering at the moment as £117M sounds great but only £80ish M is guaranteed which is an insult and think FSG would sell if it’s all cash upfront or player plus Cash but Klopp wants Rakitic …
