Ian Wright has revealed that Philippe Coutinho will definitely leave Liverpool, as no matter what the Reds offer him if Barcelona come calling they’re powerless.
In his column for The Sun, Wright apologised to Liverpool before simply saying “bye-bye” to Coutinho as he explained the Reds wouldn’t be able to keep him.
“The better this Brazilian plays, the harder it will be for them to keep him out of the clutches of Barcelona,” said Wright.
“Double his money? Double whatever Barcelona offer him? It won’t matter a jot.”
The pundit went on to say that the midfielder wants to go to one of the biggest club in the world and no matter how much money Liverpool offer him it won’t be enough.
Wright did add that he hopes Coutinho “proves” him wrong.
Coutinho has been in sensational form for the Reds this season, scoring 10 goals in 17 appearances across all competitions.
The midfielder has even scored five goals in five Champions League appearances to help his side qualify for the knockout stages.
Liverpool are sat fourth in the Premier League, ahead of playing Arsenal on Friday.
The Gunners could overtake the Reds if they beat them, with a Liverpool victory extending the gap between the two sides to four points.
