Barcelona prom­ise to try again for Coutinho

The Phnom Penh Post - - FOOTBALL -

BARCELONA are plan­ning a fresh as­sault on Liver­pool’s Philippe Coutinho in the Jan­uary trans­fer win­dow, the Cata­lan club’s CEO Os­car Grau promised on Wed­nes­day. Barca were thwarted in their at­tempt to prise Coutinho away from An­field dur­ing the sum­mer with Liver­pool plac­ing a re­ported €200 mil­lion ($238 mil­lion) ask­ing price on the mid­fielder. De­spite the player try­ing to en­gi­neer a move, Liver­pool turned down his late trans­fer re­quest dur­ing the close sea­son win­dow. But Grau made clear the Spanish gi­ants had not given up the chase. “We are ready to sign Coutinho, or any other player [dur­ing the win­ter trans­fer win­dow],” he told a press con­fer­ence. “We have the money,” Grau said.
