Transfer news and rumours live: £127m Philippe Coutinho to Barca, Manchester United to hijack Chelsea defender move –

Liverpool struggled to get deals over the line and could still lose Coutinho while Chelsea are still in need of bodies as Antonio Conte continues to battle with a hectic fixture list.

The Liverpool attacking midfielder was taken out of Jürgen Klopp’s first-team plans at the start of the season after Barcelona launched an intense pursuit of him in the summer, but remained at Anfield after the Premier League club stood firm in their desire not to sell one of their prize assets.

It is understood the on-loan Paris Saint-Germain forward walked down the tunnel and left the stadium after Mark Hughes made his second and third substitutions in the 70th minute.

Manchester City were the summer#8217;s biggest spenders splashing over £200m on new arrivals but Pep Guardiola isn#8217;t likely to stop there with a title there for the taking.
