Reports: Barca Close To Reaching Agreement For EPL Star

Reports: FC Barcelona Close To Reaching Agreement For Premier League Star

By Keegan Kruger - Aug 07, 2017 01:00 PM @KeeganKruger

Spanish giants FC Barcelona are reportedly close to sealing a deal for a Premier League star, and are hoping to complete the formalities this week.

10 Stars Who Wore The No. 11 At Barca

According to The Sun, the Catalans are confident they will secure Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho's signature over the next few days. 

The Blaugrana, who have apparently already had a bid of £72 million (R1.2 billion) rejected for the player, are set to offer the English club £90 million (R1.57 billion) for their star player.

Barcelona are said to be desperate to replace Neymar, who left the Camp Nou for Paris Saint-Germain last week, but Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has insisted, on numerous occasions, that the 25-year-old midfielder is not for sale this season, despite all the rumours.

Coutinho has apparently told the Catalan club he would like to play for them, according to Spanish media, but any deal would depend on them reaching an agreement with Liverpool.

The Brazilian missed his club's friendly against Athletic Bilbao on Saturday with a back complaint, and many believe Liverpool arre set to receive a massive offer for the player this week.

Reports: Barca Boss Would Rather Sign This Star Than Coutinho

Coutinho made 36 appearances in all competitions for the Reds last season, scoring 14 goals and assisting nine further strikes.

Do you think Liverpool will sell their star man just days before the season starts? Have your say in the comments section below.

I agree but in this case Liverpool didn't wanna sell hence the price is absurd, same as Neymar. So the buyer is exploiting the sellers desperation here.

The transfer is so inflated that almost every player will be bought/sold by a price that doesn't suit him(overpriced)
