Liverpool have made an arragement with Philippe Coutinho regarding his future [Mundo]

The Reds managed to keep their Brazil worldwide at Anfield beyond the summer transfer window despite Barcelona's numerous attempts to sign the number 10.

However, the 25-year-old playmaker tried to force a move to Barcelona during the summer with the La Liga giants submitting multiple offers for the Brazil worldwide.

And in lining up these two players, could the Catalan giants deal a blow to two of Liverpool's rivals?

Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho has joined stars from clubs such as Chelsea, Real Madrid and Juventus in being nominated for the 2017 Ballon d'Or.

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu recently suggested that the club would not make a new attempt to sign him in January due to the Reds' high demands.

Barcelona might struggle to raise the winter funds it would require to tempt Liverpool into selling such a key figure halfway through the season, although claims of a "promise" between them and Coutinho would seek to unsettle any harmony.

Liverpool remain adamant that the 25-year-old is not for sale, but both Barcelona and PSG are now expected to make a move for Coutinho in January.

In order to convince the Brazilian to play in Europe, Liverpool chiefs promised him they'd let him move to La Liga in the New Year.

Coutinho knows he can not play for Barca in the Champions League this season but that has not put him off joining.

Seeing no other way to try and force his move to Barca, Coutinho agreed to Liverpool's wishes and has already represented the club in draws with Sevilla and Spartak Moscow.
