Liverpool have finally agreed a deal to sell midfielder Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for a fee believed to be worth £142million, according to a report.

It has been reported in the Telegraph that the attacker is on his way to Barcelona and will watch the La Liga giants in their match against Levante on Sunday

And it is a transfer that has left the Liverpool faithful reacting with defiance. They believe that no player is bigger than the club while one even questioned Coutinho’s behaviour leading up to the move.

It was thought that the Brazilian was going to leave Anfield last summer when rumours were rife of an impending departure.

But a deal never came off and despite concerns that the player would not give his all for the Reds, he has been one of their best and most consistent performers this season.

Coutinho has scored 12 goals in 24 appearances for the Reds across all competition this season – prolific.

The transfer does mean that the 25-year-old will not be able to appear for the Catalonian side in the Champions League after having already played for Liverpool in the competition.

Here is what supporters of the Reds have been saying in light of the transfer news:
