Liverpool manager responded in wonderfully sarcastic fashion to the story that Nike mistakenly advertised Barcelona shirts adorned with Philippe Coutinho’s name.
Nike had to take down an advert – which appeared on their Spanish website – titled ‘Where the magic happens’ that suggested ‘Philippe Coutinho is ready to light up Camp Nou. Get your 2017/18 FC Barcelona kit with the Magician’s name on it’.
The talk all summer was that Coutinho wouldn't be sold no matter what, now reports are it will take an 'astronomical fee'. We all know he'll go at some stage but sounds like stance is changing from Liverpool. Best we could realistically hope for is an agreement now for the summer

With reports suggesting that Liverpool are ready to sell the Brazilian for an ‘astronomical fee’, Klopp was asked about the story after the Reds beat Burnley 2-1 on Monday.
Klopp said: “I heard about it. I couldn’t be less interested in anything in the world.
“But somebody told me and I thought ‘wow’. Top story.”
