After paying an initial £106m in 2018, Barcelona are still on course to give Liverpool an extra £17.7m based on two different clauses.

The first is an additional £4.4m after the first two times Coutinho helps the Catalan club obtain Champions League qualification — almost a certainty each season for a club of Barca’a size.

The second clause that relates to the other £13.3m is when the Brazilian reaches 100 appearances for Barcelona — despite often being reduced to bench cameos nowadays, he still currently sits on 45 after coming on against Getafe on the weekend.

Speculation has been rife that Coutinho is discontent with his current bit-part role under Ernesto Valverde and could look for a move away — a highly improbable switch to Manchester United was shut down earlier today however.

Liverpool fans appear to be split on whether Klopp should attempt to resign his former star — even though there is no denying his talent, some are still bitter after the acrimonious style of his exit and the way he manoeuvred a move from Anfield.
