There is new information on Phillipe Coutinho's transfer.
Let us remind you that Friday started with the statement of Fensway Sports Group, the owner of Liverpool, where they made the matter clear - Brazilian will certainly stay at Anfield. Literally a while later, Sky Sports journalists reported that Coutinho was planning to move to Barcelona by presenting to the current club a transfer request.
Paul Joyce, a well-informed journalist in case of Liverpool matters, has published his report on the situation.
Journalist of "The Times" confirmed that Coutinho actually made a "transfer request". To be more specific, he sent an official request for permission to change the club via email to sport director of The Reds, Michael Edwards.
But what is most important, according to Joyce on Twitter, the Liverpool bosses rejected the request of his player. Their approach to the whole affair is unchanging - Coutinho is by no means on sale.
The fight between the player and the club continues. Of course, we will keep you updated in case of new information.
