Liverpool’s owners have ruled out accepting any bids for playmaker Philippe Coutinho, seemingly ending the prospect of a move to Barcelona.
The Catalans are understood to have had two bids turned down for the Brazil international, the second in the region of £90million.
But in a statement, owners Fenway Sports Group backed up manager Jurgen Klopp’s public stance by saying: “We wish to offer clarity as regards our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho.
“The club’s definitive stance is that no offers for Philippe will be considered and he will remain a member of Liverpool Football Club when the summer (transfer) window closes.”
