Report – £90million playmaker wants Liverpool move – The Reds might bid

Philippe Coutinho has been linked with a move back to Liverpool for quite some time and the latest reports suggest that the playmaker wants to return to Anfield.

The Brazilian international has failed to live up to his price tag at the Nou Camp and could leave Barcelona in the summer transfer window.

News – £35million winger full of praise for “absolute beast” Liverpool star

We take a look at the transfer saga:


The Samba star had an average campaign with the Catalan giants last term in which he only scored 5 league goals in 34 games and was even booed by Barcelona supporters.

Talking honestly about his poor season, the former Inter Milan player told Marca:

“My performances have been a lot worse than I expected they would. The only way to improve and gain confidence is through hard work, and I have been working hard.”

Last month, Sky Sports News revealed that Manchester United are interested in signing Coutinho but the South American will not move to Old Trafford out of respect for Liverpool.

Earlier this month, French outlet Le10Sport claimed that the Reds are interested in bringing him back and lately, Mundo Deportivo have come up with an interesting claim.

Mundo Deportivo:

The Spanish news outlet have reported that the case of Neymar and Coutinho is almost identical. It is mentioned that the PSG star wants to return to Barca but the Spanish champions do not want to pay the 222 million euros that they got from his sale.

Similarly, Coutinho wants Anfield return but the Reds, who might bid, will not come close to splashing 160 million euros that they agreed with Barca to sell the former Nerazzurri attacker last year.

MD have further mentioned that after winning the Copa America with Brazil, Coutinho went on to party with former Liverpool team-mate Roberto Firmino and the good friends could be united again at Anfield.

Coutinho at Liverpool:

The Brazilian star joined us in 2013 and in his first full season, he was a key member of the squad that nearly won the title under Brendan Rodgers.

Coutinho progressed well at Anfield and in his final days, he was arguably one of the best player’s in the squad. In his last half season under Jurgen Klopp, the 27-year-old started 18 games in all competitions and directly contributed in 20 goals (Transfermarkt).

He used to play on the flanks and also in the central/attacking midfield roles and we have not signed his replacement as yet. Former Liverpool players like Carragher (Liverpool Echo) and Nicol (ESPN (via The Daily Express) believe that the Reds should bring him back if the price is right.

Have your say – Should Liverpool splash the cash to re-sign Coutinho? As per Marca, Barca want 100 million euros (£90million) from his sale.

    I’d say.. Damn! Take him back.. That shows he’s only outstanding player when he is #lfc.. And not #otherteams..

  • July 13, 2019 at 2:23 am

    Get him back ASP, he will catch even and more fire under Jurgen Klopp more than before

  • July 13, 2019 at 2:59 am

    I say leave him where he is or let the little scum bag go elsewhere. Yes whilst he was at Liverpool he has become a better player….., did we sell him at the right time? Damn right we did….., Since we have sold him we have won the Champions League and finished with more points than any other team than Manchester City in the League…., now if that don’t show that 1, he is not needed and 2, that we are doing better without him then I don’t know what does.
    On top of all of that….. this is the same Coutinho that slagged off all the fans, Manager, Back Staff, Owners and paid nearly 10% of his few to leave so he could leave, he faked injuries but then with this massive back injury that put him out of league footy he could still play in the WC with Brazil and on his return he is benched with this same back injury again….. any Liverpool Fan that wants him back needs their head testing…… in my opinion, this is part of the reason he will never play for Liverpool ever again so just keep printing your transfer BS for the fake fans to become better keyboard warriors than they already are.

    We can get Ziyech at half that price. A younger, hungry and better player than Couthino

  • July 13, 2019 at 8:32 am

    We should take him back on a season loan, see how it works out.

  • July 13, 2019 at 8:37 am

    Let’s get him back

  • July 13, 2019 at 10:37 am

    I agree a season loan to see if he’s wants it enough

  • July 13, 2019 at 3:26 pm

    We need creativity in midfield none of the current players offer what he can. Either we buy him or play Shaqiri more often

  • July 13, 2019 at 3:27 pm

    Lee you are forgetting that if we didn’t let Phil go we wouldn’t have been able to bring in the players that klopp did VVD,Becker and Fabinho so I’m sure we wouldn’t have won the champions league or Finnish 2nd in the league without the transfer fee we received for Phil so by Phil leaving he helped Liverpool progress and if klopp decides to bring him back I would say it would be a great piece of business for Liverpool fc ?????????

    In all other club he would be top player, just as he is, but in barca where all balls must go to Messi, he and a lot other players couldn’t do their best plays… That’s the problem also with Dembele, and it will be with Griezman too. The same reason Neymar goes out of Barca, they don’t won’t to be in shadow of Messi. But that’s a Barca…

  • July 13, 2019 at 8:19 pm

    Yes I believe we need him

  • July 13, 2019 at 9:56 pm

    Welcome home

  • July 13, 2019 at 10:36 pm

  • July 14, 2019 at 3:35 am

    Liverpool dont need him. Liverpool must get more effective striker!

  • July 14, 2019 at 5:19 am

    Only if the price is right and Klopp wants him back

  • July 14, 2019 at 6:23 am

    Sorry Klopp asked him to stay but he didn’t listen so we have moved on and invested in better players so it’s a no from me YNWA

  • July 14, 2019 at 7:49 am

    No we don’t want Coutinho back….as he left Liverpool leaving them alone to face the major team’s…..he became part of them….in the intention of fame….coming back to Liverpool……..what a shameless couthino

  • July 14, 2019 at 3:04 pm

    Reds don’t need him anymore….

  • July 14, 2019 at 3:06 pm

    Coutinho will not fail at Anfield, cost notwithstanding. The bulk of the team he played alongside with under Rogers have improved greatly. He will be a great addition to the improvement.
    Liverpool needs great depth to overtake Man City this year. Coutinho will bring in that depth.
    Please get him back to Anfield.

  • July 14, 2019 at 3:07 pm

    Let him be cuz we don’t need him anymore…he left us for Barca…

  • August 1, 2019 at 4:57 pm

    No I don’t think we shud Eva get him back! Let him go else where! Klopp tried to do wot Eva he can to keep him but he still decided to go leaving us in middle of a season whe he knew he wudve been cup tied and not allowed to play for Barca, yet he made his choice and decided to sit on the bench whilst we played in a champions league final! Yes if we did hav him it could’ve made a difference, we could’ve bought him on last yr during salah’s injury but we had lalanna instead! But I guess he is bad luck! Ever since he left Liverpool went to two finals and he couldn’t gone in any of them! As already stated Liverpool are much beta without him and he always thought he was too good for us and went somewhere where he thought was beta, but felt the shame wen he came to anfield for the semifinal 2nd leg! Yes I ageee he have Neva covered his position, but am sure there are beta players out there that cud do beta in that position! He has gone 2 yrs older and he has not improved and don’t think he eva will! There are more than half a dozen players at moment at Liverpool who are much beta than him and Suarez! If they both were too good for Liverpool then they shudve won least win something at Liverpool, but it just proves that they need a beta squad around them to win stuff but can’t do on their own, like how mane salah and firminio did!
