Philippe Coutinho has officially signed for Barcelona after a huge £142 million fee was agreed between the two clubs!
Philippe Coutinho is not a Liverpool player anymore. One of the best Liverpool players in recent memory has quit England and signed for Barcelona in Spain.
This is definitely Liverpool’s best bit of business as they signed Coutinho for just £8 million from Inter.
Given that this is a huge transfer, Twitter had quite a meltdown, when Barca officially signed Coutinho.
Bem-vindo! Welcome! Benvingut! ¡Bienvenido!

WHAT LIVERPOOL FANS THINK ABOUT COUTINHO!
I genuinely believe that Coutinho for 140 odd million is the worst value for money transfer ever. Absolute madness 😂😂😂 he gets a long shot every now and again

Good luck @Phil_Coutinho the little magician. It’s been a pleasure to watch you play for #LFC shame you couldn’t stay a bit longer, because we will win the Champions League this year 😂 Barca vs Liverpool in the final

I don’t get when fans say “we sold this player and that player but we’re still okay”…
Our objective shouldn’t be to make par every season! We’re no longer among the major trophies PRECISELY because we sold those top stars yous are undervaluing. Use your heads!#LFC

Official #Coutinho left Liverpool to go to Barca for £142m. Very good player although another ridiculous price for a player. Seems he was destined to go as someone from Nike leaked the info about Coutinho.
Going to Barca will make him a better player.

Seen someone tweet the other day that Coutinho and co had a ‘leaving’ party in the Titanic hotel a week or so ago. Add that to the Nike leak and there’s significant evidence to suggest we’ve all been blagged, again. This has been well agreed and they’re only just telling us now.

So, Coutinho is in Liverpool’s past and Barca’s future. Is he ever going to be able to repay his new club such a big fee, probably not, but he is Barca’s new superstar and that’s how it is.
