Alex Ferguson backs Liverpool FC in Coutinho row

The Brazilian midfielder has been the object of the La Liga side’s affection for most of the summer and have followed him quite closely.

The Brazilian playmaker’s situation has been a relentless source of speculation in recent weeks after he emerged as a prime target for Barcelona following the sale of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain.

And Sky Sports News reporter Solhekol has now delivered the latest update for Liverpool fans about Coutinho’s situation.

Those deals have led to Liverpool softening their stance on keeping an unhappy player and the Sun claim the Reds have agreed a £138m deal with Barcelona for the Brazil worldwide.

Furthermore, the journalist goes on to confirm that Coutinho and his entourage have finally released that he will be staying at Liverpool this summer. Where does this all leave him? After all, the 25-year-old is in Brazil preparing for their crucial World Cup qualifier against Ecuador. And guess what? His back injury has got much better.

AS reports that Barcelona has approached Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez and told him they’d like him at the Camp Nou should the Coutinho move fall through.

If Liverpool stands firm in its summer-long desire to keep Philippe Coutinho in the fray at Anfield, another Premier League team could take a hit.

Should Coutinho complete his move to Spain, the £138m fee will be the largest Liverpool have ever received for an outgoing player and would eclipse the £75m Barcelona paid for Luis Suarez in 2014.

The England global has played every game of Arsenal’s so far, including Sunday’s 4-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield.
