Liverpool star one step closer to mega money Barcelona transfer
Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho is one step closer to moving to Barcelona this summer with a breakthrough seemingly been made according to the latest reports.
The Brazilian sensation is no doubt one of the best players at Anfield and is so crucial to Liverpool’s success but they may just have given up hope in trying to keep the attacking midfielder at the club this summer.
That is because, according to SPORT, Liverpool have given Barcelona the go ahead to negotiate a deal for Coutinho but there is no doubt that they will be commanding a huge fee due to the transfer funds the Catalan giants no possess having sold Neymar Jr to PSG.
The same report claims that a deal for the midfielder could well go over the €100million mark which could certainly at least convince Liverpool to come to the table over a deal, especially with the thought that Coutinho is keen on a move.

SPORT also claim that Coutinho has already agreed personal terms with Barcelona, leading to further speculation over whether the player will look to try and push through a deal.
It is also said that Barcelona will look to complete a deal for the player by Tuesday or Wednesday next week, which could well cause some huge problems for Liverpool ahead of the Premier League opening weekend.
With the side already missing Adam Lallana due to his latest injury which will rule him out for several months, that would leave the side short in the attacking midfield role.
This saga could well be coming to an end but it is not going to end without a fight from Liverpool to try and keep their star man.
