Barcelona prepared to make new offer for Liverpool's Coutinho

But despite Liverpool's stance, Barcelona's chief executive Oscar Grau revealed his club's plans to try again - although he said they would still need to sell players to raise more funds.

The Brazilian playmaker has been a long-term target of the Blaugrana who made several attempts to sign him during the summer transfer window.

Liverpool fought off the attentions of Barcelona for Coutinho's signature, with three bids being rejected over the summer.

The on-going saga relating to the possibility of Philippe Coutinho joining Barcelona continues to rumble on.

"Right now there is nothing planned for the January window.

We must forget about the price paid for Neymar last summer", he emphasized.

Now the Spanish publication claims that Coutinho has "an ace up his sleeve" to make that move due to an agreement he reached with Liverpool in which the Anfield club promised to let him go if Barcelona make an acceptable offer.

The Blaugrana, it's claimed, are ready with a deal worth £98.6m despite bidding nearly £20m more in the summer. There's no benefit to Liverpool agreeing to such a scenario, it would be naive, simply pushing the problem to January... unless it was an outright lie and they'll deal with the consequences after Christmas.

Coutinho would be cup-tied for Champions League games should he move to Barca but that is not expected to affect the move. Since failing to get a move to the Nou Camp, Liverpool's number ten has returned to the starting XI with a vengeance, scoring three brilliant goals and producing man of the match displays, despite the Reds lukewarm form of late.
