Philippe Coutinho’s move from Liverpool to Barcelona is ‘done’ and it’s a British transfer record

So long, Phil.

Liverpool and Barcelona have reportedly agreed the sale of Philippe Coutinho in what will be a British transfer record.

Barcelona will pay Liverpool £142million, smashing the £89mil Man United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba in July 2016.

It marks the end of a five-year spell on Merseyside for Coutinho, who arrived at Liverpool from Inter Milan for £8.5m in January 2013.

He follows Robinho as the second Brazilian to break the British transfer record.

Coutinho will reportedly travel to Spain tonight and complete the move, with an official announcement expected tomorrow.

#LFC and Barcelona have now reached an agreement of €160 million for Philippe Coutinho – a new British transfer record. An official announcement is expected by tomorrow. The Brazilian is travelling to Spain to complete his move.

The 25-year-old’s last game for Liverpool turned out to be a 2-1 win against Leicester in which Mohamed Salah scored twice.

Coutinho won’t be eligible to play in Barcelona’s Champions League campaign, having already featured in the tournament for Liverpool.

But he’ll add to an enviable front three, along with Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele.

Attention will now turn to Coutinho’s replacement, with Monaco’s Thomas Lemar reportedly first choice.

Liverpool want Thomas Lemar. He’s the priority.

Barcelona are six points clear of Atletico Madrid at the top of La Liga with a game in hand over Diego Simeone’s side.

Turn up, play with Messi, pick up a La Liga medal and then go off to Russia to star at the World Cup with Brazil.

Sounds like a good deal to us.
