Nike blunder confirms Coutinho big money Barca move

The Nike UK website wrote about the soccer wizard in a description for the headline: "Where the magic happens".

After three failed bids saw the 25-year-old Brazilian remain at Liverpool in the summer, the speculation suggests that Barcelona see the deal as unfinished business.

Liverpool are understood to be less than impressed after kit manufacturer Nike advertised Philippe Coutinho as a Barcelona player on their website.

Coutinho is sponsored by Nike and wears their boots. Get your 2017/8 FC Barcelona kit with the Magician's name on it. Act fast - free personalisation only available until January 6.

The cause of Nike's brief Coutinho related update is as of yet unknown but as soon as an initial explanation is given by the American sports brand, we'll bring it to you here.

If Coutinho were to join Barcelona the Catalan giants they would have to pay more than €100 million, based on reports this past summer when the Blaugrana were pressing very hard to replace Neymar. When will Philippe Coutinho move to Barcelona? The Reds will sign Virgil van Dijk for £75 million when the window officially opens.

This is not the news Liverpool fans wanted to see to end 2017.

Five-time Champions League winners Liverpool have qualified for the group stages for the first time since their semi final appearance in 2007-08, and will need Coutinho if they want to go deeper into the tournament.
