Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona: Liverpool transfer to cause WAR in Nou Camp dressing room

PHILIPPE COUTINHO moving to Barcelona from Liverpool will cause war in the Nou Camp dressing room.

That’s over the proposed salary the Brazilian is set to be offered by the Catalan club.

Spanish outlet Don Balon claim that Gerard Pique is unhappy at the contract Coutinho could sign.

The reports say the Liverpool midfielder will be offered a £10.6m salary to play for the La Liga leaders.

Ivan Rakitic and Andres Iniesta are also unsure on Coutinho joining as it jeopardises their position in the side.

The reports claim a deal worth £133m (€150m) will secure the signing of the 25-year-old and could be announced this week.

Nike suggested a deal which would see Coutinho become a Barcelona player was done when they advertised kits with his name on the back.

A release from the sports company said: “Philippe Coutinho is ready to light up the Camp Nou.

“Get your 2017/18 Barcelona kit with the Magician's name on it.
