Philippe Coutinho & Kia Joorabchian

Liverpool fans will be starting to sweat over the future of Philippe Coutinho… again.

Stories are floating around the interwebs on Thursday that Brazilian star Coutinho could be heading for the Anfield exit door.

The rumours have been spiked by news outlets in Brazil, with both Goal and Yahoo reporting that Coutinho has now become a client of football agent Kia Joorabchian.

The story runs that Joorabchian is keen to take Coutinho out from Liverpool. He’s been linked to PSG in the past.

But there’s a major problem with the story.

Haven’t they been working together for years?

From as far back as 2015, reports have circled that Kia Joorabchian is Coutinho’s agent.

For example, back in October 2015, leading Brazilian news outlet Globo were quoting Kia Joorabchian as Coutinho’s agent. On that occasion, Joorabchian was talking up Coutinho staying at Anfield for the long term.

Following the thread of all the people who have represented Coutinho isn’t the easiest task – there is no database tracking footballers and their football agents – however it feels undeniable that Coutinho and Joorabchian have been working together for years.

According, we advise Liverpool fans to brush off these fresh exit rumours with too many reasons to worry.
