Philippe Coutinho is reported to have made a pact with Liverpool which will enable him to make a move to Barcelona in the January transfer window, as the Brazilian is said to have already agreed to personal terms ​with the Spanish giants.

The 25-year-old was at the centre of a summer transfer saga after his transfer request was denied and his dream move to Barcelona blocked by Liverpool, despite being subject to three bids which culminated in a £138m offer. 


However, according to ​Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona have maintained their stance that Coutinho is a priority signing in January, as they are aware that the Brazilian's value is likely to rise after the World Cup next summer. 

The report claims Coutinho already has a deal in place for the next five seasons with Barcelona, should he make the move.

Barcelona remain intent on signing the 25-year-old, and as Coutinho is said to still be pining for a move to Camp Nou, it has been claimed that the Brazilian has made Liverpool agree to a fixed price in January. 

The price is understood to be in the region of £128m, which Barcelona are eager to reduce but are aware the rival interest from the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain leaves them with little bargaining power. 

Whilst the two club's battle over his future, Coutinho continues to remind those in world football why there is such a fuss over his signature, as he followed up his brace against Brighton on the weekend, with a hat-trick in the Reds' 7-0 thrashing over Spartak Moscow on Wednesday night.
