Barcelona Agree £142m Deal For Liverpool Star Coutinho

Spanish giants Barcelona have agreed a £142m deal with Liverpool for their Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

The fee will be the second most expensive transfer of all time behind the £200m Paris St-Germain (PSG) paid Barcelona for Neymar last summer.

Barcelona were heavily linked with Coutinho last summer but Liverpool were adamant he is not for sale.

It looks like the Nou Camp giants will finally get their man after both teams reached an agreement.

The 25-year old joined the Reds from Inter Milan for £8.5m in January 2013 and went on to become an integral player for Liverpool.

Liverpool will receive £105m up front from Barcelona for the Coutinho transfer and the rest in realistic add-ons.
