The Sun have reported that the transfer of Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool to Barcelona is a done deal according to Nike’s official website.
It is said that the information was accidentally revealed by the famous Nike Company. However, there are no confirmations from either sides and the possible transfer fee is yet to be announced.
Coutinho has been on Barcelona’s radar since last summer when Blaugrana put great efforts to get him. While Liverpool rejected their £100m offer then, it now seems that the deal could really go through this winter.
The former Inter midfielder was one of the best players in Premier League over the last couple of seasons and he would be a major sign for Spanish team, especially after serious troubles that Barcelona have endured in offense this season.
Deulofeu is probably not Barca material and with Dembele out for months, they definitely need a creative player like Coutinho to help Messi and Suarez.
Fans are still waiting for both sides to come forward and make a statement over the possible transfer, but it looks like young Brazilian is very near to leaving the Merseyside team.
