Gary Neville Winds Up Carragher As Coutinho To Barcelona Appears To Be On The Brink

Since the turn of the new year and the opening of the January transfer window, Philippe Coutinho’s mooted transfer to Barcelona has begun to look increasingly inevitable.

On Thursday morning, Four Four Two’s Marcus Alves reported that the Brazilian’s representatives are due to sit down with the Liverpool board to negotiate the deal while the reliable Melissa Reddy has also claimed that Barcelona ‘are finalising a package in excess of €150 million’ which would make him the Catalan’s record signing.

As the news has emerged, Jamie Carragher has seemingly become increasingly distressed given his connection with Liverpool FC and on Tuesday morning, the Sky pundit tweeted out his own thoughts on how the club should handle the scenario.

Despite the fact that all reports suggest that the 25-year-old is desperate to see the deal done in the current window, Carragher urged the club to refuse to allow the player to leave before the current season is over.

If Carragher was hoping for his message to be received as some sort of ingenious idea on how the saga should be handled, he was in for a rude awakening as Gary Neville laughed off the suggestion as ‘a lovely story’.

To add salt to the wounds, Gary Neville fired another message in Carragher’s direction following Alves’s update that Coutinho ‘doesn’t intend to play for Liverpool again’.

As of yet, Carra hasn’t taken the bait but, if he does, we’ll be sure to keep you up to date here.
