Klopp: “Liverpool is not a club that has to sell players”

Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool are under no pressure to sell Philippe Coutinho and considers the midfielder priceless to the club.

According rumours last night around the social media circles , that liverpool have rejected a second bid valued around 90.4 million pounds  from FC Barcelona for the little magician Philippe Coutinho .

Coutinho recently signed a long term contract without buyout clause and also insisted  he is happy with club and want to win trophies with liverpool fc. Meanwhile there were rumors floating around the social media that if any amicable deal can be reached , coutinho could make a move to Barcelona.

But, in an exclusive interview with Sky Germany, Klopp said: “Liverpool is not a club that has to sell players. That is set in stone. So what they pay in the end doesn’t matter.

“From a financial standpoint, there is no price limit to let him go. No price at which we are ready to give in.

“Our goal is to have the best possible team. So we want to keep our guys and add new ones. That is our plan.”

Coutinho had very good 2016/17 campaign, scoring 13 times and providing seven assists in 31 Premier League appearances as Liverpool finished fourth and secured Champions League qualification.

The Liverpool manager added: “Today, no player on the planet is untouchable. But a transfer is also a question of timing and if you have the opportunity and the need to react to such a transfer.

“Also you have to ask, if you have the time to react. But just because of one request of one club, we don’t have to think about that. We are not in that situation.”
