Liverpool confirms 'no offers will be considered' for Coutinho

Fenway Sports Group had earlier released a statement on the Liverpool website saying that the club's stance was definitive.

Liverpool sold Luis Suarez to Barcelona in 2014, after the Uruguay striker pushed for a move away from Anfield.

Liverpool have already rerejected two bids from Barcelona, the most recent of which was worth €100 million.

Liverpool's owners FSG have said that "no offers for Philippe Coutinho will be considered" following interest from Barcelona in the midfielder.

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

As reported by the Independent, Liverpool Manager Norbert Klopp said that there is no price-limit to let him (Coutinho) go.

Barcelona want Coutinho to replace Neymar following his compatriot's 222 million-euro transfer to PSG last week.

He said: "The players are in a good mood, attitude in training sessions really good".

Coutinho, who joined Liverpool from Inter Milan in 2013 for around £9m, has been ruled out of the Reds' opening Premier League fixture against Watford on Saturday with an injury.

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

The 25-year-old star of Liverpool notched 14 goals for the team in last term.

"Barcelona have been on the back foot a bit, they thought PSG could not buy Neymar", Balague told Sky Sports News. "That is set in stone", he told Sky Deutschland.

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

Barcelona's follow-up bid came after the Merseyside club first rejected a £72m offer for the Brazil worldwide last month.

Coutinho was at his peak in the 2016/17 campaign, scoring 13 times and providing seven assists in 31 English Premier League appearances as Liverpool finished fourth and secured Champions League qualification.
