Liverpool have published a statement insisting that Philippe Coutinho will not be sold this summer.


The Brazilian playmaker has been repeatedly linked with a move to Barcelona and PSG, but the club’s owners have reiterated that they have no desire to sell the player.

“We wish to offer clarity as regards our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho,“ the statement read.

“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 window closes.”

The Brazilian has been heavily linked with moves to Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, following Neymar’s sensational £198million move to France.

And the manager was quoted on Thursday as telling Sky in Germany: “From a financial standpoint there is no price limit to let him go. A price at which we are ready to give in.

“Our goal is to have the best possible team so we want to keep our guys and add new ones. That is our plan.

“Liverpool is not a club that has to sell players. That is set in stone. So what they pay in the end doesn’t matter.”
