Jurgen Klopp tightlipped on Coutinho move talk

Coutinho: his future still hangs in the balance

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has refused to comment on speculation linking star player Philippe Coutinho with a move to Barcelona. Nike, Barca's kit sponsor, recently announced that Coutinho would be making a move to Spain.

The La Liga top side have been chasing Coutinho for several months and the player is known to be very interested in a move to the Catalan side.

The German manager, who spoke to the press this morning, told reporters: "All the things I could say now would only create stories, I have nothing to say. It's a transfer window. Nothing I could say now would help me, the player or the club."

It has been reported that Barcelona will table a new 150 million euro bid for Coutinho this week and are confident that a deal can be agreed with the Anfield side.

Coutinho has two and a half years remaining on his deal with Liverpool and has also attracted the interest of La Liga strugglers Real Madrid.
