Barcelona have apparently upped their bid for Coutinho to £100 mil tonight.
Going to be hard for us to resist that 😢 I hope we do though or at least squeeze out A LOT more of the 220mil they might be getting from PSG for Neymar.
Although saying that even with all that money, Coutinho is irreplaceable and we won't be able to find somebody to replace him.
I don't believe Keita was planned to be his replacement, probably to work along side him. What a duo they would be in the middle of the park!

I think it would be a disgrace for us to sell him for that price, not least because we all know that there is basically no one that could replace him on the same level except for messi, ronaldo or possibly hazard. More importantly though, if the owners decide they can't turn down the money we should be asking for at least as much as neymar! In my opinion that makes him worth over 200 mil but something tells me won't get nearly as much as we should. I just pray that the owners stay out of it as I'm really believe couts will happily give us one more season.

Seeing reports that a deal for Naby Keïta has been agreed. £74.5m just payment structure and a sell on clause to be finalised? You heard anything Ed02?

Believable2 2Unbelievable

Yeah some sources in Germany reporting fingers crossed.

Good job I scrolled down to see this, was about to put it in the second half of my recent post about Barca's bid for couts 😢

Weird how both reports popped up at the same time on my news feed xD

I wonder how long it now takes for us to actually agree the terms of the payments and sell on fee, probably be left in limbo for a while again with "bid accepted in principle" being posted 50 times a day now for a while -. -.

22 Jul 2017 23:46:19
Hi Ed02 Are you saying that the deal has been agree or you haven't heard anything about the deal being agreed?

{Ed002's Note - I know nothing about it at all. Sorry.}

Winner Sports with the scoop. Hmmm sceptical. Hope so and if so. Auf weidersen Emre.

23 Jul 2017 00:11:36
This has been confirmed by Winner Sports, really hope its true.

Btw Joestreble, its past midnight, not heard we've ended our interest in Keita yet ;)

23 Jul 2017 00:29:26
If we don't manage to get the player with this last offer, we'll really look like rank amateurs for persisting on something that RBL (officially) have been saying will never ever happen. And doubly so, because we're adopting (officially), the RBL stance of "we don't sell our best players and it's not going to happen", on the offer from Barcelona for Coutinho.

Given that players have to be sold if we manage to buy (to maintain squad size), I think it's actually Can that will be sold and not Coutinho, in the case of Keita. But maybe we'll find out tomorrow, since Can is back this weekend. The contract is supposedly ready and let's see if he signs it; what excuses are left for not signing it if he is indeed staying? And it's not as bad a deal if the outgoing of 75Mil for Keita is offset by a deal of 30-35Mil for Can. If we buy VVD then I see Lovren being sold and not Gomez. It's those long contract renewals/ extensions that seem to be the final kiss of death, LOL. Mignolet has escaped this fate, but that's because of his upturn in form, whereas Lovren is still flailing in the wind. How ironically funny it would be if Sakho could not be sold/ loaned and ended up wearing LFC red for next season again.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jul 2017 20:33:08
Both naby and vvd have been told to train alone today are we about to hit the mother load? And as for lil Phil what the hell where Barcelona thinking low balling like that?

have they been taking the how not to do transfers course what Liverpool run? Does anyone else think that Barcelona knew we didn't have the funds to get naby and vvd and flung a low ball offer in to see if we would bite?

Believable25 26Unbelievable

21 Jul 2017 21:42:38
I'd love to think we are going to sign the big two. But coutinio talk (and massive tooth ache) has got me down. Earlier I said liverpool under klopp is not a selling club. I really really hope that is true. Let's be brutally honest though, in last 5/ 10 years we have made a habit of selling out best assets. Torres, alonso and mascherano. Sterling agger and suarez. For w/ e reason they were all the best we had in their positions. I will be GUTTED if we sell coutinio but I'd have to be an idiot to be surprised.

Agree8 5Disagree

21 Jul 2017 21:50:39
Hi Ed002. So basically what you're saying is Southampton have a price which is in the region of 70 milion or more. He wants us we want him cough up and don't take the piss with them and they will play ball of sorts? Have I read that right?

Agree1 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware I have even commented on this thread. I am not aware of saying anything like that.}

21 Jul 2017 22:17:20
I think we will sign both and retain Coutinho for one more season, at least. He won't go, especially after signing that new deal; no clause.

Agree14 6Disagree

21 Jul 2017 22:34:45
GiantKey would love you to be right but generally once Barcelona come calling it's curtains.

Agree10 9Disagree

21 Jul 2017 23:05:21
Giantkey signing new contracts doesn't mean anything anymore, Virgil not long ago signed a huge 6 year deal iirc? Contracts are worthless nowadays (RBL seem to be the only club who think contracts are worth something which they should be)

Agree6 1Disagree

21 Jul 2017 23:29:01
Suarez went for less than Barcelona just bid (granted different circumstances but still) so we can't say it's a low bid. I would think Phillipe is worth 85 million pounds and we would accept a bid that high if it was offered. Still praying Phil stays through the year aND we get our targets. we are as close as we have been since suarez/ Gerrard and there is no doubt in my mind our squad is better than theirs.

Agree0 21Disagree

22 Jul 2017 00:21:58
I hope we can keep him. I hope he stays for good. If he gives us this season and we pull off something special who knows. I have to say I've always been a bit baffled by kieta becoming our top priority when we could do with a natural striker and cb. The reason is because Phil is off. I hope I'm wrong.

Agree5 1Disagree

22 Jul 2017 01:01:05
In my opinion players are often incentified/ bunged a few quid to agree new contracts to enhance there value. Im sure if Emre agrees a new contract he will be sold next year. Contracts mean sqwat. Coutz gone next year.

Agree3 2Disagree

22 Jul 2017 08:24:58
We will get 1 more season. Take our time over the deal let his price rise with a good showing in the CL and WC and give us time to scout the right replacement.

Agree4 1Disagree

22 Jul 2017 12:13:04
Ed02 said that some months ago, Barcelona were told by LFC to cough up 100m euros and then they can start talking regarding Phil. If we were not willing to sell at any price, that is the dumbest negotiation tactic I've ever heard of and why we would do that, I have no idea. Barcelona were just testing the waters and will surely be back with a fee approaching that 100m euros and then, let the games begin.

Regardless of that tho, I still feel that Couts leaving LFC should be a non starter and we should do all we can to keep him cos we cannot say on one hand, we wanna compete for PL and CL yet we sell our best player. That is the wrongest message to send to our fans. Couts is staying at all costs, should be the mantra going forward.

Agree4 2Disagree

22 Jul 2017 12:54:41
If Phil wants to go then good luck to him. He has been brilliant for us when it looked like we would struggle without Gerrard. He never moans, never gets big headed about things. If he feels this is what he wants to take his career on then who are we to give him a hard time.

Let's not forget though, it's all hearsay so far. "This player said this, this player said that" he could yet stay at Liverpool for another five years. He is always going to be good enough to play for barca. I hope jurgen helps him see how important he is in this project.

Agree8 1Disagree

22 Jul 2017 13:13:22
We don't need to buy another striker. I think Dan the man will step up this season with a full pre season under his belt (fingers crossed) and why would Klopp want to sign a contract extension if he new the club were the type to sell on our best players. he has said himself that none if our best players will be sold anymore and that the club will be looking to ADD quality and not sell it. were moving forward now thanks be to god. YNWA.

Agree2 2Disagree

22 Jul 2017 14:01:23
B Scouse, it was PSG not Barca, and this was before we seen how inflated this market has been. LFC will no doubtably raise the price A LOT more now.

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Jul 2017 14:16:56
United fan here coming in peace lol, with regards to coutinho I genuinely believe if you can get a good fee for him 80 million ish you would have a better side if it was reinvested wisely don't get me wrong he is a top top player but he doesn't seem to drag you to results the way suarez used to, you have firmino salah mane and lallana as well as sturridge origi solanke. You may all disagree with me i mean im sure you watch them a lot more than i do just my honest opinion.

Agree5 9Disagree

22 Jul 2017 14:28:33
Imo I think couts will be here thus season. world cup at end of season which he will be a major player at.
1. Off will get more if he stars in it. 2. If he wants to be the star player he is better staying at club where he is the main man. exactly why neymar wants out at Barca. Just my opinion.

Agree3 1Disagree

22 Jul 2017 15:30:22
Barca about to get €222 mil for Neymar. if we don't hold Barcelona randsom the way other leagues do the prem clubs I'll be very disappointed. love Coutinho, but he's not exactly Suarez (I know different t position) but Suarez was more than a game winner he's a league winner, coutinho is not. if we can get close to £100 mil if take it.

22 Jul 2017 16:11:22
I think redphil wrote that before today's game to be fair, in that roll he looks electric, if keita played along side just wow! Haha, , let's just keep Phil.

Where have you read that Keita is training alone too?

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jul 2017 19:15:43
We don't need anything more than a top CB now IMO - Keita is a bonus but not at the expense of losing Coutinho or even Can IMO.

If any of the EDDS r around,
Any news on the reports doing the rounds that KEITA fee agreed 74.5M.

Eds, surely if we put a bid in now for VVD it will just start the whole tapping up thing again?

Believable1 2Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - He is damaged goods because of Liverpool and as I have explained on the Southampton page his position is untenable. Southampton are aware of interest from elsewhere and Liverpool's position has been made clear. If they were to go back, withdraw ther statement and make an offer it would not be a complete surprise - but if they were to look to exploit the situation with a low bid I can see the price to Liverpool rising considerably and Southampton would look perhaps to the FA to address an issue they have so far tried to avoid.}

21 Jul 2017 21:08:11
Would it not be in the interest of both parties then Ed02 for Liverpool (As we caused this mess) to do the right thing and ask what Southampton want and just pay it without any low balling or more pi** taking?

Do you think based on Macca's post Liverpool will move forward and pay a substantial fee which is our own doing to make the transfer happen?

Thanks in advance


Agree2 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what Macca has written. I have explain what would need to be done.}

22 Jul 2017 09:09:42
What are we avoiding Eds I thought Liverpool was found clear of tapping up?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No, there has been no investigation as of this time. The complaint sits in abeyance.}

22 Jul 2017 12:15:13
I propose we just pay what Saints want and help rehabilitate the mess we have caused by rendering VVD as "damaged goods". We caused this so we should fix this cos the boy does not wanna play for anyone else this season. We kind of owe it to him, IMO.

Agree5 1Disagree

22 Jul 2017 17:41:13
EDDS, didn't F. A. look at the complaint from soton, but said there wasn't enough evidence to charge LFC, so if that's the case they should be able to bid for him like any other team.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - There was no complaint by Southampton to The FA so (a) it is nothing to do with them, and (b) any statement from them seems irrelevant - and I am certainly not aware of them issuing a statement.

Liverpool formerly withdrew their interest in the player in a humiliating public apology. If they wish to withdraw that statement then they can of course.

I really struggle to see why I have to keep saying the same thing over and over and over again.}

21 Jul 2017 17:46:18
Eds, do you think Barcelona would have made the bid without first consulted with Coutinho and/ or his agent?

Believable0 2Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I have explained before that he club are aware of what Coutinho told three international team mates last season and are also aware that PSG, Barcelona and Bayern Munich have continued to have Coutinho watched. He is also aware of interest from Barcelona and one of the three he has spoken with is a Barcelona player. At the end of October his representative visited Barcelona to make clear that the player is open to a move there during 2017 and this re-enforces the recent comment from an international colleague that Coutinho has got Neymar to speak to Barcelona about him as well. Liverpool will work to avoid selling.}

21 Jul 2017 21:13:28
Hi Ed002, do you believe that Liverpool have the means to buy both Keita and VVD without selling Coutinho? Or will that be a stretch too far financially?

(avoiding any me too of figures of course)

Cheers in advance.

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It is to do with a separate matter - move on from the money.}

21 Jul 2017 19:36:37
Hi got back from LA recently, from where I posted a little bit of info I'd received from an 'agent'. not THE agent, about VVD situation. What's happening now is exactly what was going to happen. He wants to move now, and it may not be LFC, although that is his preference. The Cue slagging off.

Believable3 1Unbelievable

21 Jul 2017 20:41:37
If he is training alone, they will have to review the situation and see if they think once the window closes he is worth keeping and will play. No matter how well of you are, if he won't, then you'd rather 60 million in the bank than an disruptive player. Genuinely believe Liverpool may go and offer 30 million now though - wouldn't put it past us.

i know right at the start we had lots of youngsters officially sign, which i am assuming because they had pre-contracts organised!

Looks more like gone on strike by what the manager said, refused to play as wants to leave so is training by himself. I really hope after all this damage we caused we just stump up for the player we want and tapped up now. Then move on an try repair the damage as soon as possible.

Agree8 0Disagree

21 Jul 2017 18:29:58
His manager has confirmed that the player has been asked to train alone because he wants to leave and doesn't want to take part in the teams preseason.
But Southampton still maintains that he is not for sale.

So unprofessional, why would we want someone with that sort of attitude at LFC, how would we feel if coutinho did this to force a move to Barcelona?

21 Jul 2017 18:57:17
While we have behaved badly yet again, one of the eds have said that VVD was told his club would allow him to leave this summer after the way they treated his old CB partner last transfer window, I could of misunderstood however.

To the person commenting on why would we want such a player in our squad. Mané actually pulled the same kind of stunt 6 months before he joined us when there was interest from United. Unfortunately this is just the way it is sometimes and Van Dijk has certainly made his feelings clear regarding moving to LFC.

Agree5 0Disagree

21 Jul 2017 22:27:31
The line that appears in the papers may not reflect reality. Organisations have more power to put their 'truth' into the public domain than individuals do.
I want to make it clear that I'm NOT casting any specific aspertions on what Southampton have said, just making a general point that you can't always take these things on face value. It's called PR.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jul 2017 08:03:28
Well said AndyM we don't know the full picture and Eds have posted on here about previous player treatment, bad atmosphere over it etc. Journos have an interest in keeping clubs happy because they get more stories from them and there are go to papers for them. Is VVD a big enough player that his side gets aired or that toxic a player that he is airing his side? Surely LFC. fans more than any should know to be cautious of how papers present things.
