Hi EDs, Barca's General Manager is openly saying that Coutinho is 'close' to signing but FSG and Klopp has insisted that he is not for sale. If we are really not interested to accept any bid from Barca, couldn't we report Barcelona for unsettling our player with such comments?

{Ed001's Note - unsettling our player? You really have not kept up with the situation, it is Couts that wanted to go to them. They have not needed to unsettle him as his agent has made sure to tout him to the Catalans at every opportunity, as it is the move Couts wants. We are just posturing to get the best deal.}

Surely it's just a matter of time now and Barca's results against Real might make them more desperate to get the deal done asap. I understand the lure of playing for them but this could be one of their weakest teams for a while it might not turn out to be the dream move he hopes. I do wish him all the best let's hope we be very unliverpool like and spend the money wisely on top quality in positions we need.

Coutinho will be going and we knew this a couple of seasons ago.

Barcelona will up the bid and he will be off, then the money will be used on van dijk and keita.

I agree with you I think Barcelona are in a transitional phase, their best players over the last 5 years are all approaching 30 or older and they are not bringing through the same young players they used to. Unfortunately for him he'll be joining them at the wrong time.

{Ed001's Note - his choice to do so at the end of the day, but I do agree and I have to wonder why his advisors are not telling him the same thing.}

Both Barcelona and Coutinho are about to make a massive mistake in my opinion.

Having watched the game ed, I don't want Rakatic. He is all the things you said he is, slow and passive to say the least. Shows how poor they are as they had him and Gomes both off the surplus list playing. Woukd rather just the money.

{Ed001's Note - I do wonder what happened to him, he is not that old that it should have affected him yet.}

17 Aug 2017 07:29:08
He's staying at LFC 👍.

17 Aug 2017 07:29:18
To be fair to Rakitic, he's had to do the running for five extra players for three years now, so it's no wonder his legs have gone.

17 Aug 2017 07:35:14
I can't understand why anyone would want Rakitic in the deal. Would be a really bad deal. He just doesn't look like he has the legs to play in top flight competition.

17 Aug 2017 08:02:29
I agree about rakitic. Looked ineffective but so did all there players. Even messi and suarez had little effect. On the other hand how good were madrid! Luka Modric is such a classy player. One of the best for me.

17 Aug 2017 08:11:29
Is this possibly why neymar jumped ship ed, because he realised they were on the decline or was that purely about money?

{Ed001's Note - that was 100% about money.}

17 Aug 2017 08:29:34
Didn't need to watch yesterday's game to know that Rakitic is crap. He has been crap for a few seasons now and players like him, Gomez, Turan, Vidal (dross players), Masche, Pique, Alba (all over the hill) are the reasons why Barcelona will be seeing RM's dust this season and the next few to come. As for Cou, Ed has said we are just trying to get the best deal and Cou has poisoned the waters here and he will have too own that part of this saga.

17 Aug 2017 08:35:35
Ok i see, and with agents fees etc it must have turned out to be too good to resist especially with them all having problems with the tax man at Barcelona lol. Thanks ed.

{Ed001's Note - and his dad likes to get paid.}

Agree 110% BingoRed. The only thing that concerns me is that we may well get close to 150 million euros, but then how do you spend that with about a week of the transfer window to go? The sensible thing would have been to do what Everton did, make the purchases that you want to make, then if you know that you are going to sell the family silver, at least you won't get mugged by all and sundry because they know you have a wallet full of cash. Every team that we then approach for players will try and rinse us if they know we are cash rich because of Coutinho. I wonder if anyone at the club has any acumen at all.

17 Aug 2017 09:38:21
"Just posturing to get the best deal". Sounds quite final ed😂🤔.

17 Aug 2017 11:18:43
Dennis, you may be correct there. The way it will be is that when Cou is finally sold, other teams will stick us for every penny of that Cou cash and we will be worse for it as we may have to overpay to get our targets, which is the worst scenario possible.
