Don't shoot the messenger but received this info off a club steward who claims to be ITK.

Liverpool sold Coutinho to Barcelona 2 weeks ago for £140m deal. Barcelona agreed to Coutinho going on 01/ 09 so that Liverpool did not have to pay a premium for players with other teams knowing they had this money to spend. Liverpool also felt the fans would not be as upset if Liverpool had signed two or three more players and Coutinho had "forced" the deal through. Coutinho had his medical 2 weeks ago and the agreement was that he would not play another game and would go to Barcelona straight from the international break. Barcelona have agreed to form a relationship with Liverpool over transfers also as part of the deal. Namely if they are prepared to let players go they would inform Liverpool first.

Wow. That steward must've had some heavy involvement in the negotiations to know the ins and outs to that level of detail. Good for him. #morethanjustaHiViz.

Believable but I just hope we spend the money on trying to get some reinforcements. A CB and a cout replacement.

If not it won't matter how they tried to paint it to the fans that Coutinho forced the move, the majority of the fan base won't like it.

We'll know tomorrow if your source is a good oner. Might get your own page! I'm thinking it could be true. But wondering if there is a prerequisite of us getting lemar. Hoping.

'Form a relationship with Liverpool' - one where we sell them our best players. Would that be that old relationship
called buggery?

Someone posted a similar rumour yesterday, and ED002 said that he had heard of something similar by people he deems knowledgable on this. let's hope we sort our replacements in time then.

Are you sure the steward doesn't just read this website as well?

Wouldnt this make klopp and the management look like fools after months of 'not for sale at any cost' to turn around and say 'just kidding we sold him 2 weeks ago! '? Makes little sense.

They obviously won't announce he was sold 2 weeks ago will They!

Every player has a price particularly when they show a desire to move.

Good luck to him and Thanks!

Prepared to let players go, if their release list is anything to go by I would rather not have any relationship.

If this is true there should be an additional page called "HiVis Rumours" like Macca rumours xD.
