Liverpool valued Coutinho at €200m

FC Barcelona director, Albert Soler has revealed how much Liverpool wanted for playmaker, Philippe Coutinho on Deadline Day.
Reports from Spain claim the Catalan giants were still keen on signing the Brazil international on Friday.
However, the club’s sporting director has now revealed that the Reds wanted €200 million for Coutinho.
“On Friday, after weeks of offers and talks, Liverpool put a price on the player that we wanted [Coutinho],” Soler said in a news conference, according to ESPNFC.
“A price of €200m and we decided we wouldn’t do it. That’s an example of the way football is now. This club and this board will not get involved in that, though.
“What’s happened in the transfer market this summer has taken us to a totally different model of football which we’re not used to.”
Barça did, however, break their club-record to sign Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund for €105 million.
