Secret deal with Barcelona over transfers after Philippe Coutinho exit

May JohnsonНоя 25, 2018

This was reflected in an agreement between the two clubs last winter, when the Catalans closed the deal for the hiring of Philippe Coutinho.

Barcelona previously signed Luis Suarez from the Merseysiders in a controversial deal in 2014.

Barcelona must pay 100m euros (£89m) on top of a transfer fee if they try to sign a Liverpool player before 2020.

Liverpool also reluctantly allowed Brazil ace Coutinho leave for Spain but were angered by the La Liga side's pursuit.

Since a year has passed since the deal was completed, Barcelona would have to wait another 2 years to sign further players from the Reds, at least if reports are to be believed. Barca came back in for him in the winter window, breaking up Liverpool's superstar quartet of attackers and, presumably, incurring the $114-million premium.

This indicates the clause would prevent Mohamed Salah and Roberto Frimino who've been linked with the Blaugrana over the past 12 months from leaving for the Camp Nou.

And it has now emerged they were initially agitated by Edwards' insistence on the clause being inserted but were forced to agree to it if they wanted Coutinho.

Coutinho was the subject of three failed bids from Barcelona last summer, the largest of which was worth £113m, and handed in a transfer request in an attempt to force a move.
