Guillem Balague: Coutinho urges Barcelona to submit 4th Liverpool bid

Barcelona & Philippe Coutinho

Another day, another set of updates from Sky Sports pundit Guillem Balague on the Philippe Coutinho situation.

Headline news from the Sun on Wednesday is that Barcelona are gearing up for a fourth and final bid for the Liverpool star.

It’s claimed Barcelona will offer 136 million pounds for the Brazilian.

When it comes to how the offer breaks down, Barcelona are due to offer Liverpool £100m up front with add-ons of £36m.

Would that offer be successful?

It’s worth noting that the consensus opinion is that Coutinho will stay with Liverpool for at least the next twelve months.

Guillem Balague on Coutinho

Sky Sports pundit Guillem Balague has taken to social media on Wednesday to reveal his latest Coutinho updates.

In news that will go down badly with Liverpool fans, it’s claimed Coutinho has urged Barcelona to submit a fourth bid.

If true, that reveals just how committed Coutinho is to leaving Anfield this summer.

Of course, Coutinho handed in a transfer request this summer to try and force through his move.

Will Barca get their man?

According to Balague, even Barcelona admit they have little chance of signing Coutinho this summer.

Barca also seem unlikely to sign Nice midfielder Jean Michel Seri.
