Liverpool sold Coutinho with an anti-Barca clause in the deal

Wed 25 November 2020 | 12:48

Liverpool embedded an anti-Barca proviso in their offer of Philippe Coutinho to the Catalans back in January 2018.

That is as per the British paper The Times and conveyed by Diario Sport. 

They guarantee that when selling Coutinho to Barcelona, Liverpool presented a condition in the arrangement expressing that if

 

Barcelona

 

attempted to buy another Liverpool player somewhere in the range of 2018 and 2020 they would need to pay an additional charge of about €100m. 

Barcelona had just marked 

Luis Suarez

 from Liverpool in 2014 and the Merseyside Reds was resolved to assure they forestalled further advances. 

Michael Edwards

, Liverpool's director of sports, is perceived to have been the one to demand the condition. Barcelona needed to acknowledge it to sign Coutinho. 

Along these lines, if Blaugrana attempted to sign Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, or Gini Wijnaldum, they'd need to pay €100m on top of the player's estimated worth. 

Wijnaldum

 has been firmly connected to the Catalan club as of late, with his agreement due to lapse this June.
