Brazilian’s camp are said to be unhappy with the way Catalan club approached the transfer of the midfielder
PHILIPPE COUTINHO is ready to smooth things over with Liverpool after accepting his Barcelona dream is over.
The Reds star, 25, handed in a transfer request this month in a bid to join the Catalan club.
But Liverpool rejected his request, as well as three Barcelona bids this summer.
Ernesto Valverde is frantically searching for a Neymar replacement following his £198million Paris Saint-Germain transfer.
But Barca are now turning to other options after finding their efforts blocked.
Nice star Jean-Michel Seri’s move to the Nou Camp is reportedly 90 per cent complete, while Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele appears close to joining.
Coutinho has been left in limbo and the Independent reports he is ready to return for Liverpool.
And Jurgen Klopp will take back his star man back with open arms.
People close to Coutinho are said to be unhappy with the approach Barca have taken to try and land him.
Barca are claimed to have put pressure on the Brazilian’s family, and are thought to be behind his emailed transfer request.

He said at the time: “I signed this new contract to stay here for a few more years because it’s a great honour for me.
