Brazil boss Tite has remained on the fence regarding speculation that Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho could join Barcelona before the end of the transfer window.

Coutinho, who is away on international duty with Brazil, has been the subject of three failed bids from Barca with the latest rumours claiming that a deal is now done.

Tite is mainly concerned that Coutinho is at a “place where he feels happy; if it’s at Liverpool or if it’s a move to Barcelona”.

“It has affected him and will continue to affect him until the transfer window closes,” Tite added.

“If he leaves, he will continue to be affected because he’ll need time to adapt to his new club. Players are human beings and they respond in different ways.

“I’m not sure how he will respond because it depends on the person.

“I don’t have an opinion on what is best for him. If he stays at Liverpool. I will be happy. If he goes to Barcelona I will be happy too.”
