Coutinho will not be sold — Klopp

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Liver­pool man­ager Jur­gen Klopp said mid­fielder Philippe Coutinho would not be sold at any price, as Bri­tish me­dia re­ported the club had re­jected a sec­ond bid worth 100 mil­lion euros ($117 mil­lion) from Barcelona.

Barcelona had al­ready been re­buffed last month in an 80 mil­lion euro bid for the 25-year-old, who joined Liver­pool from In­ter Mi­lan for 8.5 mil­lion pounds ($11 mil­lion) in 2013.

The 24-time Span­ish league cham­pi­ons in­creased the of­fer to 85 mil­lion euros plus 15 mil­lion in add-ons but Liver­pool have re­jected the sec­ond bid, main­tain­ing their stance that the player is not for sale, ac­cord­ing to the re­ports.
