Neymar, Coutinho and Firmino

Liverpool fans react to the news Barcelona have made a bid for Coutinho

Coutinho off?

Barcelona are facing a summer transfer window where they see one of their best players leave – making a huge statement about the club, and the fact anyone can be for sale if they want to leave.

Now, in order to save some face and bring in a top player, they’ve made a massive bid for Philippe Coutinho, but Liverpool are having none of it, and given their transfer window isn’t exactly going swimmingly, it’s no wonder.

Coutinho isn’t going anywhere this summer according to Jurgen Klopp and his club, and the fans have pretty much agreed it’s a joke that in the most inflated transfer window of all time, where Kyle Walker is going for over £50 million, Barcelona have the cheek to bid around £72 million for Coutinho, one of the best players in the Premier League.

Liverpool fans and the rest of football viewers took to Twitter to joke about that, and of course fax machines and paper shredders made an appearance – in fact, it was a lesson in why GIFs and videos are so funny.
