COUTINHO CLOSE TO RECORD BARCELONA TRANSFER FROM LIVERPOOL

There was a possibility of doing an advanced deal now ahead of 2018-19, but Barca and the 25-year-old have pushed for an immediate transfer

Barcelona are finalising an offer in excess of €150 million to secure Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool, which would make him the third-most expensive footballer in the world and their record signing.

Only Neymar’s €222m switch from La Liga’s leaders to Paris Saint Germain, and his team-mate Kylian Mbappe’s loan move from Monaco – which becomes permanent ahead of next season for €180m – surpass that figure.

It would also see Coutinho oust Ousmane Dembele – brought in from Borussia Dortmund last August for an initial fee of €105m that could rise to €145m – as the club’s highest-cost recruit.
