Martin Keown sends stark warning to Liverpool FC about Philippe Coutinho

Martin Keown sends stark warning to Liverpool FC about Philippe Coutinho

So if Messi really were to want Coutinho, it would be in Barcelona's best interest to get him.

"It was massive to keep hold of Philippe Coutinho but you feel it could only be a matter of time before they lose him".

Once Neymar left Barcelona, there was no getting away from Philippe Coutinho rumours last summer. This was despite a transfer request, at least three bids from Barcelona and constant speculation.

The Brazilian star wanted to move to the Nou Camp this past summer but the Reds refused to sell him.

Liverpool are also said to have "promised" Coutinho he can move in January if Barca meet their demands.

Meanwhile, in the slightly more respectable corners of the Barcelona-obsessed press, the latest Coutinho talk is being met with skepticism, with Mundo Deportivo critical of any suggestion the player could be signed this January and suggesting all it can do is further annoy Liverpool and make any future deal more hard.

The Catalans look likely to offer 80 million euros plus 30 million euros in incentives in the meeting next week.

General Dynamics Corporation (GD) Position Down in Latest Report from Exane Derivatives
BidaskClub cut shares of General Dynamics Corporation from a strong-buy rating to a buy rating in a report on Tuesday, June 27th. The average Wall Street analyst rating for Dollar General Corporation is Hold, according to the average of 16 analyst scores.

Even Mundo Deportivo admit this won't be accepted.

It's pointed out that Coutinho being cup-tied for the Champions League puts downward pressure on his price, but that seems utter self obsessed nonsense - he can play for Liverpool in the same competition, Liverpool own him, Barcelona's problems with it are their issue and not a reason for discount.

Those close to Liverpool will of course deny the existence of such an agreement and point to the long-term contract that Coutinho signed at Anfield only nine months ago.

Talks between the two parties will be resumed in the coming days, Coutinho could became a new Barcelona player in January.

Barcelona have not stopped their contacts with Coutinho and his agents Kia Joorabchian and Giuliano Bertolucci.

Coutinho moved to Liverpool in a £8.5m deal from Serie A giants Inter Milan in the 2013 January transfer window alongside England worldwide Daniel Sturridge.
