Klopp and Coutinho set to meet

Philippe Coutinho of Brazil celebrates his goal against Ecuador with teammate Willian

"The 25-year-old - who has not played for Liverpool since the beginning of August, missing a series of training sessions with what the club described as a "sore back" and illness - was yesterday declared "in ideal condition to play" by Brazil's medical staff", Castles said.

Coutinho has not played for Liverpool yet because of a back injury, which was communicated by the club, but featured and scored in Brazil's World Cup qualifier on Wednesday night. The 25-year-old handed in a transfer request earlier this month, and as noted by Aarons, Barcelona have already seen bids rejected for him.

A third offer of £118 million was turned down but the Liverpool's resolve finally broke yesterday with the player intent on the move from Anfield to the Nou Camp. We are used to the fact that traditional clubs were the big players.

"We have always worked with the mission not to put at risk the heritage and the viability of the club which is owned by the members".

They also rated La Liga as one of the best leagues in the world and said they would love to play in the La Liga as that's where the best players play.

"If Robert and I came out here and told you we'd signed two players for €270m, we would have crossed the line of responsibility and then we would have had to resign". It has been reported that Angel Di Maria remains an option, and that Mesut Özil has emerged as a potential target in case Coutinho's deal collapses entirely.

"Barcelona have an excellent team and the signings are going to contribute a lot", Fernandez said. We've been planning our business for a long time.

"He helped us to seal a win but he is very sad right now", the Brazilian stated confirming that Liverpool won't allow him to join Barcelona.

For Brazil coach Tite, who has overseen eight out of eight victories in competitive matches since taking over, the priority for the clash in Porto Alegre is to maintain the high standards.
