  • "The 8.5mil story is all over the BBC so don't knock the Echo on this one.

    There were a zillion threads touting different numbers and theories from Italy and England but BBC are saying the lad wanted to go to Liverpool (case of bigclubitysis).

    Makes you wonder though:

    1. So much for Mopo attracting fancy players when he couldn't get a former loanie.
    2. Inter had no faith in the youngster so why should we.

    oh well serves us right for getting feisty about a window!!
    As ever believe it when it's on the OS.. or BBC etc :("

Coutinho deal sealed

LIVERPOOL have had an £8.5m bid accepted for Saints target Philippe Coutinho.

Saints were reportedly prepared to pay £10.2m for the Inter Milan midfielder but their interest cooled when it became clear the player was holding out for a move to Merseyside.

Cash-strapped Inter need to sell the 20-year-old Brazil international in order to sign 24-year-old Brazilian midfielder Paulinho from Corinthians before the transfer window shuts.

The sales of Wesley Sneijder, who has sealed an £8.4m move to Galatasary, and Coutinho would easily fund the €15m move for Paulinho
