A five year deal signed in January, late into pre-season training and not for sale: Liverpool’s position on Philippe Coutinho, pictured training with his Reds teammates this week, has not changed.

But Sky Sports reports that Barcelona are still needling away in the background trying to shift the Premier League club’s position – because, they believe, the Brazilian is willing to join them should the clubs be able to find an “amicable” position to negotiation from.

Barcelona think Coutinho would be willing to join them if deal can be done amicably. No change in LFC position: Not for sale & happy at LFC

Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez and lawyer Andre Cury have reportedly met with Coutinho’s representatives and Spanish radio reported mid-week that Coutinho had indeed asked for a release, which was kyboshed by the Anfield club – so much so, the price to steal him from England is a dizzying £134m, according to Diario Sport.

However, there is now a suggestion that midfielder Ivan Rakitic could be thrown into the mix as a sweetener as well, although The Daily Mail counters that by reporting that the 29-year-old midfield maestro is content at Barcelona and “is not aware of any such negotiations”.

Indeed, The Liverpool Echo, watching the Reds’ pre-season at close quarters, has declared that Liverpool will “snub whatever improved bid is tabled” and that the Brazilian is not about to embark on a Luis Suarez-esque escape plan.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“Coutinho played a full part in the session, just as he did on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning,” reported James Pearce in Germany.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“There have been no murmurings of discontent in the camp over either his attitude or his application.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“He looked happy and relaxed as he shared a joke with team-mates after cycling back to their base in the town on the banks of Lake Tegernsee in Bavaria.”

And Klopp certainly isn’t talking as if his attacking stocks are going to be diminished this term, either.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“We have to defend different situations better and think about how we could make the other teams crazy with all the qualities we have,” Klopp told the club’s website.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“With the quality and skills of the boys, you immediately have different options offensively, but to be organised is the main thing.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“Otherwise you have no chance, you will have how we felt a few times, you can have 80 per cent possession but in the end if they have one situation then 1-0.”

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

So much depends, of course, on whether Neymar stays or not. ESPN FC reports that he will not return to Spain after Barcelona’s international tour due to commercial projects in China. After that, it will be D-Day in terms of Paris Saint-Germain’s outrageous offer.

NABY KEITA LATEST

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

RB Leipzig Sporting Director Ralf Rangnick has had to backtrack after claiming Liverpool target Naby Keita has a “whole village in Guinea” advising him, while discussing his much talked about potential move to Liverpool.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“I know Naby from the very first day when he came to Salzburg,” Rangnick said. “We therefore have a very close relationship, also to his adviser. We are in a trusting exchange. That is exactly what I said in my lecture in Bochum.

“Behind many players with an African background, and I’ve met a lot of them, there is a clan and sometimes a whole village, that lives from the help of one football player. And it’s the case that there are people behind Naby, that demand his transfer.”

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

Rangnick added: “Believe me, my knowledge in geography are good enough, to differentiate between Guinea and Africa.”

The Independent reports that two bids have already been knocked back, and The Mirror tips a third, final and irresistible £70m bid from Liverpool in the next week.

THE Central Coast Mariners have extended the A-League’s Spanish cohort, signing 26-year-old striker Asdrúbal for the coming season.

The new arrival will lead the line for Paul Okon’s side after the departure of Roy O’Donovan, and was the product of a scouting mission Okon undertook at the end of last season.

Going by the full name of Félix Asdrúbal Padrón Hernández, he has spent most of his career with hometown club, Las Palmas in the Canary Islands and has played in La Liga — though most recently he was briefly signed to a Thai team.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

Though his goalscoring record is not prolific, Okon said the calibre of what Asdrúbal does score had attracted the Mariners boss’s eye.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“He is 26-years-old which is still quite young but he has La Liga experience, his pedigree is good and he has played in some very good teams — the way he scores goals has really impressed us and it fits into the way we play,” Okon said.

Asdrúbal himself pledged to endear himself to the supporters through old-fashioned hard work.

“Obviously scoring goals is fantastic and it’s my number one objective but more importantly what I am all about is work rate,” Asdrúbal said. “I want to contribute to the whole team; my work rate is something that the fans will see a lot of and my never give up attitude. If goals follow from that, then that’s the bonus.

“The A-League is a good competition, it’s a great opportunity for me to establish myself as an important player and my decision to come here is based purely on football, but I’m sure this will be a beautiful place to live with my family.”
