Philippe Coutinho in action for Liverpool

Coutinho only signed a new deal, reportedly worth around £150,000-a-week, in January to become the highest-paid player at Liverpool.

However, we're not talking about where to catch some sun in the winter months, but rather about the fate of one particular footballer: Philippe Coutinho.

Philippe Coutinho has a "pact" with Liverpool which would allow him to leave the club for Barcelona in January, according to reports in Spain.

"Money, is there. What we want is to have the best team possible".

The Brazil worldwide missed the start of the season with injury, but has scored three goals on his return to action for Jurgen Klopp's men. Liverpool's position has not changed and they are furious about Grau's comments.

Mohammad Hossein Baqeri and Turkish Chief of General Staff Hulusi Akar announced the plans during a press conference in Tehran .

"Of course they are still interested in Coutinho, they've got everything sorted with the player, we've all known that for months".

"I don't think it's going to happen in January, I don't think they've got intention of making it in January".

Coutinho had his heart set on moving to Barca and handed in a transfer request on August 11; Liverpool, however, insisted they would not give him his wish and warned Barcelona to stay away.

Liverpool made their stance clear when they rejected Coutinho's transfer request and rebuffed Barcelona's bids of £72 million, £90.3m and £118m. Mundo claims, Klopp and Liverpool positively accept Coutinho's terms and promise to weigh Barcelona's offer.

Coutinho has since found the back of the net in his next two games against Russian side Spartak Moscow and promoted side Newcastle United.
