Well neymar done and 200 million for barcelona. Eds thinks couts won't be sold. Will be curious to see if Barcelona sign anyone now if not then surely it will be agreed for couts next summer.

Frankly, I don't think they can wait another year since the team seems to need a massive overhaul. I think they'll go back to their first choice (Veratti) and try to resolve the problem (s) there or go for someone else.

Aparently verrati is sounded out as a replacement for iniesta as is couts but if I had to pick a replacement for neymar between the two it would be coutinho.

It's not a replacement for neymar it's a replacement for iniesta and Veratti is their 1st choice of the two but they can't get him and Couthino is 2nd in line and desperate to join them. Personally I would be very proud if Liverpool had actually stuck to their guns and said our players are not for sale at any price until WE decide they are surplus to requirements. And still stick a large price tag on said person then if they are extremely confident about getting the asking price, not asking mad money for
Sakho- markovic etc. Pains me to say it but those types of players should be written off the books and try and recoup whatever they are offered within reason and try and not make mistakes like that happen again. There's a lot of thinning out to do in the squad and not much happening.

"he is desperate to join them" - source for this please, or are you just basing it off this site?

I hope Barcelona get neither Coutinho or Verratti. Time for that club to face the music that they dished out to other clubs in the past.
Nice to see other clubs come to the fore and at least make an attempt to stop the La liga duopoly of Real and Barca.

giantkey RTP if you want a source for the basis of that comment, it's common knowledge to people who actually know who and what they are talking about and not actually being argumentative and wearing red tinted glasses. If you don't have the intelligence to understand what has been clearly stated and prefer to live in a bubble where no player would ever dream of leaving the club, well then your fooling nobody only yourself.

{Ed001's Note - then you are overstating it. He is not 'desperate' to join them, but it is a move he would like to make.}

04 Aug 2017 05:03:59
Didn't mean to come across as overstating but did he not approach certain Barcelona players last year in regards to any potential Barcelona may have in him joining them as a player in the not too distant future.

{Ed001's Note - players talk about stuff like that all the time, it is not an 'approach', it is players having a chat.}

04 Aug 2017 07:42:41
He is not 'desperate' to leave at all, a stupid choice of word. He wants to go to Barcelona and everyone and their dog knows that. ask wondersparky. let's see how strong we really are and see what happens. Either way Ill be singing Youll never walk alone just before the match starts and finishes.

You know what I'm really not that concerned re PC going if we got near on 100 mill for him, I'm more concerned we haven't addressed our defence. We have players who can do a job for PC in my opinion we haven't got players who can lead at the back an organise a set piece though.
Just an opinion!

Someone made a great assessment on here the other day. Coutinho has five years left on his contract, no buyout clause, its a world cup year so he needs to perform regardless of where he is, if he has a good season in the champions league and world cup his price rockets. We are in a great position to keep him this summer so unless he hands in a transfer request I don't think he'll go.

{Ed002's Note - You do understand that he wants to leave?}

04 Aug 2017 11:11:02
How comes ed01 and ed02's replies differ so much?
Ed01 makes it sound like he's open to the move but would also stay but ed02 makes it sound as though he wants the move.
Which one is it? Plus ed02 what difference is it if a player who's under contract is made to stay and play?

{Ed002's Note - Coutinho wants to move hence all of the efforts from him and his agent. I don't understand the second question.}

04 Aug 2017 11:37:53
I know he wants to go Ed but he is not in a great position to force a move. It's not like he will walk away for free next summer and he can't really sulk if we keep him because if he wants to get into the World Cup team, he needs to play and play well.

{Ed002's Note - I don't recall ever saying that he was in a position to force a move.}

04 Aug 2017 11:57:46
Never said you did Ed. I just posted a comment. I wasn't holding you to anything you'd said I was just backing up my earlier comment.

04 Aug 2017 12:06:17
Sorry for not making it more clear what I meant was. Kieta's club has made it quite clear he's not for sale but apparently he's open to the move. I'm not in the know just what I've read so correct me if I'm wrong. However after testing their stance albeit a little cringe worthy it seems we've given up as they're standing fast. In liverpools case are we open to sell him if the right offer comes in or is he not for sale?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool keep putting a price on the player. If they don't want to sell then perhaps the club, not Klopp, should make that clear.}

Ed02 thanks for the reply. That makes the situation a little more clearer.
