Liverpool not selling Coutinho, say club owners

The statement on Coutinho from Liverpool's owners is the latest blow for Barcelona in their plans to rebuild their squad after Neymar's move to Paris St Germain for 222 million euros weakened their attack.

Off the back of Liverpool's statement, some markets were shut on Coutinho's future and he became 1/10 to stay at Anfield.

This development is something Liverpool have dreaded all summer and the timing, ahead of two games of huge importance, could not be worse for the club.

"But at the end of the day it comes down to Philippe Coutinho and his decision, what he's prepared to do, what type of war he's prepared to create to get out because Liverpool won't make it easy for him".

The Brazilian winger was at his peak in the 2016-17 campaign, scoring 13 times and providing seven assists in 31 English Premier League appearances as Liverpool finished fourth and secured Champions League qualification.

If, however, Coutinho's Barcelona move is really off, Juventus may be forced to retire from the race to sign Can as Klopp is not open to sell the Germany International in the summer.

Playing the entire second half, he completed 11 of 18 attempts for 184 yards with one TD, the 45-yarder to Jordan Payton . He's expected to play at some point in the preseason as is Peterson, who stayed close to his QB during the first half.

It added: "Philippe will remain a member of Liverpool Football Club when the summer window closes".

"If Liverpool do sign him and manage to keep hold of Philippe Coutinho, Jurgen Klopp's side would have a great chance of winning the title".

"They have to fight to try and keep the player but ultimately the player will decide and for a Latin-American player, Barcelona will always be the place to go".

Also on Friday, Sky Sports News received a statement said to be from a member of Coutinho's family.

Asked if Coutinho would play at Vicarage Road on Saturday, Klopp replied: "No, he has back problems".

Jürgen Klopp has also insisted the Selecao superstar is not for sale, while the player has reportedly behaved impeccably amid the speculation. It's like I said: the club is bigger than anybody.
