CLOSER? Barcelona working on method of payment for Liverpool ace Coutinho

Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho wants to make the move to Barcelona well before transfer deadline day.

With Coutinho due to join the Brazil squad at the end of the month, the midfielder doesn't want the transfer to occur while he's on the other side of the world and has made this clear to all parties.

Barca, says Sport, accept they must go over €100m to convince Liverpool to sell - and there is hope of an agreement in the coming days.

It's claimed all parties involved understand there is now a deal to be done, with the method of payment and a final fee - including bonuses - now key to settling on the transfer.

At Anfield, it's suggested there is a growing belief that Coutinho will leave this month.
