“Obviously he must have wanted to join Barcelona” -Suarez

Barcelona forward Luis Suarez believes that Klopp’s key player Coutinho is so keen to leave Liverpool because he has the “ambition” and “any player would want to come to Barcelona”.

The attacking midfielder was on the radar of Barcelona in the summer transfer window all season long but the move couldn’t finalize despite the Spanish giants offering improved bids thrice.

Barcelona continued trying to reap in the Reds’ star as the replacement for the void position of Neymar. However, the continuous efforts couldn’t bring in the benefits for the Spanish side.

Also, the Brazillian even-handed in a transfer request in a bid to force Liverpool’s hand, but the Reds insisted he wasn’t for sale and kept him at bay.

Since then, speculations haven’t stopped off the transfer move taking place and the Uruguayan is all in for linking up with the Liverpool star, that is if the deal takes place.

Suarez spoke to Mundo Deportivo about whether Coutinho wanted to move to Barcelona, saying: “Obviously he must have because he’s a player who has ambition.

“And any player would want to come to Barcelona.”

“He went through a difficult and very complicated moment but as a professional, he continued to show how good a player he is.”

He also talked about the impact Coutinho could make on the team and added, “A lot. I know him as a person and as a player because I played with him, but what Coutinho can contribute everyone knows.”

“He is a footballer, who today, plays at a very high level.”
