Liverpool insists on a record sum for Koutinho, 100 million must be paid immediately
Liverpool will not retreat from the conditions against which he will split with Philippe Coettinho. As soon as the winter window was opened, the Argentine saga of Brazil’s eventual transfer to Brazil was renewed with full force. In the summer, the Catalans failed with all three offers, but the media in Spain and England suggest that this time a deal will come and Kouttinho has already played his last match for Merseyside.
The UK reports say Liverpool will surely break the British transfer record. So far, the biggest deal involving the English club is that of Paul Pogba, for whom Manchester United has paid 90 million pounds. It is estimated that a proposal of about £ 133 million will be accepted by Liverpool.
According to Sun, Anfield will demand 100 million to be paid immediately as they are ready to invest in new players as early as January. The newspaper says Juergen Klop plans to make a bid for Schalke star 04 Leon Goretzka. His contract expires in the summer, and at the very end of last year there was information that he had already come to terms with Bayern. Schalke denied this, and Liverpool plans to hit the competition with a bid this month.
According to some sources, the transfer of Koutinho may be finalized today.
