Celebrity News: Philippe Coutinho has reacted immediately to the Liverpool statement announcing that they would not let him leave this summer. The Brazilian player has chosen to request the transfer request to force his transfer to Barcelona, reports Sky Sports.
The transfer request is a mechanism that exists in the Premier League, where there are no termination clauses. This is a formula whereby players publicly ask their clubs to let them out and feel that they are negotiating with another team that is interested in them. It does not force anything but implies that the player makes it clear that he does not want to remain in the team, which usually ends in the transfer.
In this way, Coutinho clings to his last option to leave Liverpool this summer. It remains to see how the club reacts, who is not forced to sell if he does not like the offer that Barca does.
Coutinho, who already had some back problems to play in the friendly against the Atletico and will not be in the Liverpool premier league at Watford. In fact, coach Jürgen Klopp, during the press appearance prior to that meeting, maintained that the player’s downfall continued to respond to the same ailment.
Shortly before, and also this morning of Friday, the own Liverpool had issued a statement in which it was clear on the future of Coutinho. The English club assured that it would not consider any proposal of transfer by its franchise player – “the position is definitive”. “It will remain at Liverpool when closing the window of signings”.
The club had already rejected the first offensive on the part of Barcelona, who was willing to hover around 115 million euros between the fixed and the variables. However, after the formal request for transfer by Coutinho, Liverpool will have no choice but to take up the matter again.
