How Philippe Coutinho is planning to force a move to Barcelona


Philippe Coutinho is ready to take action to ensure his move to Barcelona finally starts making progress.

The Brazilian is locked in a standoff with Liverpool, who are adamant he is not for sale after rejecting two bids of £72million and £90m.

Mundo Deportivo claim that the playmaker is now growing so exasperated by the club’s stance that he is considering going on strike, knowing full well that it could jeopardise his chances of playing at next summer’s World Cup in Russia.

Last week, the 25-year-old formally handed in a transfer request and the saga is quickly turning hostile.

A back injury has kept him out of the first two games of the season, so it remains to be seen if he’s played his last game in a red jersey.

Barcelona are desperate to land the former Inter Milan attacker with the money from the sale of Neymar to PSG, as their summer business has been thoroughly underwhelming so far.

The Blaugrana have told Coutinho’s representatives this is a ‘now or never’ situation, making it all the more urgent that he gets his move before the August 31 deadline.
