The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are drinking their worries away amidst rumours their star player is nearing the exit door.
Despite consistent reports that Barcelona have been coming in with offers of around £90 million for Liverpool superstar Philippe Coutinho, Jurgen Klopp has remained adamant that the club will not sell.
Whilst that attitude should fill Liverpool fans with confidence, our landlord is here to tell you why that probably shouldn’t be the case.
Back in 2011, Liverpool were convinced that they wouldn’t sell their Spanish forward, Fernando Torres following interest from Chelsea.
Why would they? He was one of the best forwards in the world at the time and was crucial to Liverpool’s side.
Then they sold him for £50 million.
Three years after that and Liverpool had another one of Europe’s elite forwards at their club and again, they were adamant about not selling Luis Suarez to Barcelona.
The Uruguayan nearly led them to the Premier League title and the club were convinced at the time that he could take them one step further next time around.
Then they sold him to Barca for £75 million.
These aren’t the only two instances where this has happened either.
Xabi Alonso, Javier Mascherano, and Raheem Sterling were all apparently not for sale only to depart the club soon after.
Our landlord isn’t saying Coutinho will definitely go, but the history speaks for itself.
