Philippe Coutinho Unlikely to Face Watford in Season Opener

Liverpool fans won't appreciate Graeme Souness' verdict on the Philippe Coutinho situation

The Reds reportedly turned down a second offer from the Spanish giants on Wednesday worth up to £90.4 million.

Barcelona had already been rebuffed last month in an 80 million euro bid for the 25-year-old, who joined Liverpool from Inter Milan for £8.5 million pounds in 2013.

Liverpool have agreed a five-year deal with the global money transfer company, worth an estimated £5m a season.

Reports out of the United Kingdom say Liverpool have knocked back an offer of £90m (NZ$159m) for the Brazil global just a fortnight after they said no to a deal worth £72m (NZ$127m).

Barcelona have a full agreement on a five-year contract with Coutinho and believe a deal can be struck with Liverpool, who they continue to feel will be prepared to sell the player for the right price. No price at which we are ready to give in.

Barca's quest was given a boost after the player told Liverpool yesterday he would prefer to make the move to Catalonia if a deal could be agreed between the two clubs.

SC refuses to stay auction of Sahara's pride Aamby Valley
Sahara had petitioned the top court to stop publication of auction notice for Aamby Valley on August 14. The court had granted Mr Roy a four-week parole on May 6, 2016 to attend his mother's funeral.

Liverpool have repeatedly stated he will not be sold with Jürgen Klopp insisting last week that his club's stance is not open to interpretation.

Because the Dream Team game - the UK's biggest fantasy football game - is back and better than ever this season.

STEVEN GERRARD feels Liverpool star Phillipe Coutinho will have to create a "war" to force through his move to Barcelona.

The Brazil global is the subject of intense interest from La Liga giants Barcelona, who have identified the playmaker as a replacement for the recently departed Neymar. "But a transfer is also a question of timing and if you have the opportunity and the need to react to such a transfer".

Barcelona's pursuit of Coutinho comes in the wake of Neymar's £198 million move to Paris Saint-Germain, with the Liga side desperate to find a replacement for the forward.

"We're not a selling club so they're going to do everything in their power for him to stay".
