Barcelona president Bartomeu: This is what we offered for Coutinho...

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has confirmed the offers tabled for Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho.

On El Rondo, Bartomeu was asked about their late market attempt to prise Coutinho away from Anfield.

But the president explained: "Coutinho? Liverpool was demanding 200 million euros.

"We could not enter this negotiation game and our proposal was less than 100 million euros, but with the bonuses our offer reached 120 million."

Coutinho has made his playing return for Liverpool over the past week after a summer full of transfer speculation.
