January Transfer Window is On: Liverpool Place 145m Pound On Coutinho
Barcelona will have to pay £145million to prise Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool.
The fee would be the biggest for a player who did not have a release clause in his contract.
Liverpool spent a world-record fee for a defender recently when they signed Virgil van Dijk from Southampton for £75m but do not need to balance the books.
At Barcelona, Coutinho would not only link up with Argentina legend Lionel Messi but also Luis Suarez, who Liverpool sold to the five-times European champions for £75m in 2014.
Suarez won the Champions League in his first season, beating Juventus 3-1 in the final, in which he scored to seal a club treble.
The Uruguayan ended his first campaign with 25 goals and, along with Messi and Neymar in the attack dubbed ‘MSN’, scored 122 goals.
