KXIP vs KKR Live Score

After various reports that Liverpool are adamant that they will not sell star midfielder Philippe Coutinho, Sky Sports has reported that the Brazilian has handed in his transfer request to makes his move to Barcelona.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has gone on record a number of times emphasising the player is not for sale.

However, various outlets, including the BBC and Sky Sports are reporting that the player has formally asked the club he wants to leave by submitting a transfer request.

This popular vlogger probably echoed many Liverpool fan's thoughts when he said Coutinho was crucial to Liverpool's potential success this season.

While we do understand that Coutinho is a major transfer target for Barcelona, the recent developments clearly make it hard to suggest if the the Brazilian is indeed replacing Neymar at Barca.

"Liverpool is not a club that has to sell players", Klopp said.

It added: "Philippe will remain a member of Liverpool Football Club when the summer window closes".

They had two previous bids rejected by the Premier League side but could yet come back with an offer in excess of £100 million.

No wonder Jurgen Klopp was in such a bad mood at his first pre-match press conference of the Premier League season.

"There is no price limit to let him go or a price that we are ready to give in", the German coach said on Thursday. That is set in stone.

The club then rewarded his efforts and Coutinho signed a new five-year deal in January.

"Our goal is to have the best possible team".

Manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that the Brazil global has not trained for the past week and is unlikely either to face Marco Silva's side or Hoffenheim in the first leg of the Champions League play-off tie on Tuesday.
