Barca Boss Valverde Remains Tight-Lipped Over Coutinho Deal

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde shrugged off speculation over an imminent swoop for Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho on Wednesday by insisting: “I prefer the players I currently have in the team.”
Brazilian international forward Coutinho has been linked with a 150 million euro (63 billion naira) switch to the Spanish giants in the current transfer window just as he was when the English side thwarted a series of approaches from Barca last summer.
“I have nothing to say on the subject of Coutinho, he isn’t one of our players,” said Valverde.

“He is at another team and we respect the fact that he is at another team. He is a great player and we don’t know what is going to happen in the future.

 “However, I much prefer the players that I currently have in my team and they are the ones who concern me.”
