Liverpool officially announced that midfielder Philippe Coutinho will leave the club for Barcelona in a deal worth £146 million.
The Brazilian playmaker's move is the second biggest transfer in world football history after the club originally rejected a £113 million move this summer. Despite being ineligible for Champions League and just five months from the World Cup, Coutinho opted to leave the club in the middle of the season for his dream club in Barcelona. Said manager Jurgen Klopp: "It is no secret that Philippe has wanted this move to happen since July, when Barcelona first made their interest known. Philippe was insistent with me, the owners and even his team-mates this was a move he was desperate to make happen. Despite that, we managed to keep the player here beyond the summer window, hoping that we would be able to persuade him to stay and be part of what we are looking to do." The club is currently linked with Riyad Mahrez and Thomas Lemar as a possible replacement. Jan 7 - 2:34 AM
