Klopp hints that Liverpool outcast could still stay

Rivals Manchester City also spoke to Neymar.

Jurgen Klopp says he is pleased with Philippe Coutinho's progress ahead of the new season.

Liverpool boss Klopp is adamant that Coutinho won't be sold to Barcelona despite recent transfer speculation.

Coutinho, meanwhile, continues to be linked with Barcelona, who are facing the prospect of losing Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain this summer. That's why we kept him playing, every second he was playing better, he was more present.

Hazard and Coutinho are perhaps the most important players at their respective clubs, and in today's market, Barcelona would need far more than just Neymar's release fee to afford both of them. "This year they certainly seem to be in buying mode, not selling".

Liverpool's stance mirrors that of RB Leipzig, who themselves turned down offers which rose to £66m to lure Naby Keita to the red half of Merseyside.

Talks between Barcelona and Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho are at "an advanced stage", according to reports in Spain.

The club announced on Wednesday that the Brazilian had handed in a transfer request, meaning they are likely to be looking for a replacement for him soon.

The 22-year-old is the son of Atletico Madrid coach Diego and scored 12 goals in his first 35 Serie A games last season.

The likelihood of Mane leaving Liverpool for an Inter side not in the Champions League seems a little hard to believe.

And there's more worrying news for Reds fans over at Talksport with their claim that Juventus "are ready to step up their pursuit" of Emre Can after hearing that he won't sign a new contract at Anfield.

Inter, though, are optimistic that Mane could be for sale - if they offer an acceptable amount.

The midfielder of Turkish origin has yet to extend his deal but he will not leave the Reds this summer.
