Liverpool midfielder Coutinho accepts Barcelona dream now over

Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho accepts the chance of a move to Barcelona is now over.

The Reds have turned down three bids for his services and an end to the transfer saga now looks close.

The Independent says Coutinho has now accepted a move is not likely, and he and his agents will speak to senior figures at Anfield to smooth over any issues.
