Manchester United are ready to enter the race for Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho

At approximately 0100 CET last night Nike in association with main FC Barcelona sponsor Rakuten published a promotional offer via their Facebook page where fans could purchase online personalised Philippe Coutinho Barça shirts.

The marketing strap was: "Where magic happens" with Nike adding: "Coutinho is ready to impress at Camp Nou".


According to Mundo Deportivo, Coutinho thanked Liverpool for their "interest and affection" but reiterated his desire to join Barcelona.

Yet a fresh round of rumours suggesting Barcelona will sign Coutinho in the January transfer window have now surfaced, with this latest contribution from the club's kit manufacturers fuelling suspicions that a deal could be close.


But whatever the reason, it's high time Liverpool reported Barcelona over their antics over Coutinho.

There's still been no word from either club or from Nike, but a handful of journalists with connections to the Liverpool end have come out today with something of a collective shrug. Looking into his crystal ball, Balague softened his belief that Coutinho will definitely remain at Anfield.


"As there has been no new offer from FCB yet, we don't know what LFC's final stand". But they seem more ambiguous. They need to sell around eight players between now and the summer to reduce the huge wage bill (over 80% of income) and have transfer money available.
