The silly season seems to have started again and it's only October.
Barcelona mouthpiece Mundo Deportivo has distributed another very crazy story on Coutinho's potential move to Spain.
This time, they're guaranteeing that Barca have REDUCED their offer to €80m inside and out (with €30m in additional items) and expectation that Liverpool will acknowledge when January arrives – despite the fact that we dismissed a similar offer a little more than a month back..
Part of the way through August, Barca offered €92m, generally, with more than €30m in additional items (Mirror)…
This is a synopsis of what writer Fernando Polo has guffed out…
- Barcelona will make an offer of €80m in addition to €30m in future motivating forces toward the start of January
- They won't meet Liverpool's 'boorish €200m valuation
- The point of the January bargain is to help Barca's La Liga and Copa del Rey possibilities, so his new colleagues can seek after the Champions League with crisp legs
- Coutinho is still in coordinate contact with Barca players, particularly Paulinho (who he knows from Brazil) and ex-Liverpool partner Luis Suarez
- The player's operators are as yet asking Liverpool to consent to offer and acknowledge Barca's present offer, as no higher one will be made
Alright, so here's a rundown of reasons why this story is likely the most inept we've perused on Coutinho, which is stating something considering the different untruths distributed amid the late spring.
- Why might Liverpool all of a sudden acknowledge an offer they declined to recognize a month and a half back?
- Why might Liverpool alter our opinions part of the way through a season?
- Why might we offer our best player before the Champions League knockout stages?
- Coutinho is playing admirably and has scored three objectives in his previous three recreations; he's not disrupted
- Why do Barcelona trust we'll offer in to their 'ethical high-ground' with respect to Coutinho's sticker price, when they simply made €200m from Neymar?
There's likely around 200 more reasons with reference to why we're not going to offer Coutinho in January, but rather we've sufficiently recorded.
We encourage Barcelona-fan-journos to discover another thing to expound on. It's October. Lay off until 2018 at any rate, for the love.
