Report - Liverpool reject €100m bid from Barca for Coutinho

The BBC are reporting that Liverpool have rejected a massive €100m bid from Barcelona for Philippe Coutinho.

According to the BBC, this second bid was made up of a fee of €85m plus a further €15m of add-ons.

Liverpool have been very adamant that they will not sell the Brazilian playmaker.

Asked if the 25-year-old was not for sale, Klopp told a press conference in Hong Kong on Friday: "Yes, that's what we can say. But that's not since this morning or yesterday, I'm not sure if it was different at any time. So, yes.

"I'm not surprised that any club is interested in players, if it is like this. A few people obviously see that Liverpool has a few good players. That's how it is.

"But a very important message, maybe - we are not a selling club.

"We believe in working together, we believe in development together. We believe in using the basis. We want to work together, we want to make the next step together and for this we need to stay together. That's how it is."

At an event announcing a new club sponsor today Klopp did not mention Coutinho and left before questions could be asked.
