According to Brazilian teammate Neymar, Philippe Coutinho is unhappy at Liverpool.
The 25 year old has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona in recent months. The Brazilian has handed in a transfer request at Anfield in hope of forcing through a switch to the Nou Camp. The La Liga giants have had three bids rejected for Coutinho this summer. And Neymar, who left Barca for Paris St-Germain last month, says the Liverpool star is unhappy at Anfield.
After Brazil registered a 2-0 win over Ecuador on Thursday night, Neymar was asked about COU10 and he replied, - Unfortunately, instead of being a happy time for him [Coutinho], for his family, it's a moment of anguish, disappointment and sadness.
Coutinho, who is contracted at Liverpool until 2022, scored a screamer for Brazil despite his club saying that he had a back injury. With the Spanish transfer deadline set to shut at 11 pm, it remains to be seen if Barcelona will make a final attempt to land the playmaker.
