According to the report, Barcelona directors on Tuesday, August 8 arrived England to quickly seal the deal.

Barcelona are looking to quickly seal the seal the deal so Coutinho can be available to face Real Madrid on Sunday.

Barcelona officials Oscar Grau, Raul Sanllehi and Javier Bordas are hoping to finalise a deal with Liverpool before the end of Tuesday.

The Nou Camp club has seen two offers turned down by Liverpool, but they believe that a third will be able to convince Liverpool to part with their star.

Coutinho have reportedly told Jurgen Klopp that he would love to make the move to Barcelona.


Klopp had always remained firm in his decision not to sell the forward but it seems his hands have been forced as Liverpool owners seem to be ready to let the player leave.

Coutinho would be Liverpool’s biggest sale if the move goes through as the move is said to be in the excess of $100m.

Liverpool sold Luis Suarez to Barcelona for £75m in 2014.
