Insider: Nothing settled between Liverpool and Barcelona over Coutinho

There's been zero progress between Barcelona and Liverpool over talks for Philippe Coutinho.

That's according to Spanish expert Guillem Balague.

He tweeted this morning: “On Coutinho. There has been no meetings with Barcelona, FCB have put no new offer (yet), LFC have put no price to him, there was no promise from LFC to him to sell him now, LFC are not forced to sell, but...

“As there has been no new offer from FCB yet, we don't know what LFC's final stand. But they seem more ambiguous. "Nothing is forever... there's always a solution" (Klopp). Are they planning to agree something for the summer? Open to huge offer? Things clearer when FCB sends offer

“FCB want Griezmann and Coutinho, but can they pay for both? Not as it stands. They need to sell around eight players between now and the summer to reduce the huge wage bill (over 80% of income) and have transfer money available."
