According to ESPN FC, Barcelona will make Philippe Coutinho available for transfer at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.
Coutinho, who joined Barca from Liverpool in January 2018, has largely failed to impress for the Spanish champions.
The 26-year-old was poor against his former club at Anfield on Tuesday night, and according to ESPN FC, the Catalan giants will listen to offers of around £90m for the 26-year-old.
The Liverpool fans have been on social media reacting to the transfer claim.
And it would be fair to say that the majority are not interested in their club re-signing the Brazil international in this summer’s transfer window.
Ironically, the Reds are expected to be in the market for a player with Coutinho’s skills, but it seems unlikely that the 5 ft 8 ace, who has managed just five La Liga goals this season, will be heading back to Merseyside.

He’s a snake, never to return to Liverpool.

Never in a million years would i want him back at Liverpool. He’s made his bed and he can lie in it over in China.

He showed last night he’s not up for the fight when things go against him. Mostly invisible
