Have Nike just confirmed that Philippe Coutinho is finally on his way to Barcelona?
Coutinho, 25, was heavily linked with a move to the Nou Camp all summer, but Liverpool rejected a number of mammoth offers from the Catalan giants ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.
Barca remain intent on landing the Brazilian superstar and it appears Ernesto Valverde has got his man.
Liverpool and Barcelona fans were sent into a frenzy on Saturday night as Nike’s official website appeared to leak the sensational transfer move.
An advert for Barca’s latest strip reads: ‘Philippe Coutinho is ready to light up Camp Nou.
‘Get your 2017/18 FC Barcelona kit with the Magician’s name on it. Act fast—free personalisation only available until 6 January.’
Some reports suggested that Coutinho would not move to Spain until the end of the season, but Nike’s post hints a transfer may be just around the corner. All eyes on January!
Asked about the rumours, Coutinho recently said: ‘I always say the same thing. I try to enjoy the moment.
‘I like to play football and, every time when I go on the pitch, I try my best.’
