Jurgen Klopp has told Liverpool fans that Coutinho was desperate to sign for Barcelona this month. Liverpool confirmed on Saturday night that they had reached an agreement to sell the Brazil international to the Spanish giants for a fee of 142m pound. The Reds had initially refused to sell Coutinho in the summer transfer window but the player’s insistence that the move was the right one for him was part of the reason Klopp and the Reds opted to let him leave this month. Liverpool now prepare for life without Coutinho as they turn their intentions towards their Premier League showdown with Man City next Sunday. Liverpool are likely to be busy in the remainder of the January transfer window as Klopp looks to try and replace Coutinho in his squad. Meanwhile, Coutinho will have to wait to make his Barcelona debut after his medical revealed his current injury problem is worse than feared. It’s a major blow to Coutinho who had hoped to make his debut possibly as soon as Thursday when Barcelona take on Celta Vigo in the Copa del Rey. His lay-off mean he is likely to miss the La Liga games with Real Sociedad and Re al Betis, both of which are away from home. #coutinho #barca #barcelona #liverpool #klopp #jorgenklopp #ht180 #ht180sports
