Coutinho transfer to Barcelona accidentally confirmed by Nike

Coutinho, 25, was heavily linked with a move to the Nou Camp all summer, but Liverpool rejected a number of mammoth offers from the Catalan giants ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

Liverpool's Brazilian playmaker looks increasingly likely to complete a move to the Nou Camp in January, with kit manufacturers Nike dropping a huge hint overnight that a deal is nearly complete.

In addition to manufacturing Barcelona's kit, Nike also sponsor Coutinho, who wears Nike-made boots. Reports emerged in August, saying the Brazilian handed Liverpool a transfer request, but the club denied those reports.

Under the headline "Where the magic happens", Nike tell fans: 'Philippe Coutinho is ready to light up Camp Nou.

Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona was accidentally confirmed on their website.

Kit manufacturers are not often involved in transfer announcements - aside from Pogba to Manchester United - and neither club has announced any deal for Coutinho yet.

After scoring 12 goals and assisting another nine as part of Liverpool's "Fab Four" in the first-half of the season, Barcelona are likely to come in for Coutinho again.

In the hours since the post has been taken down, there have been no further comments on the transfer speculation - other than Liverpool reaffirming that Coutinho will be in the squad to take on Burnley on New Years Day. The Reds will sign Virgil van Dijk for £75 million when the window officially opens.
