Barcelona ace linked with Liverpool switch

Ronaldinho spent five seasons at Barca winning two Spanish titles and the Champions League

Ronaldinho spent five seasons at Barca winning two Spanish titles and the Champions League

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp already has stacks of midfielders at his disposal and with Rakitić turning 30 in March, we're not convinced by this speculation.

Meanwhile, former Barcelona favourite Ronaldinho has said he'd be delighted to see Coutinho make the switch to the Nou Camp.

"I believe the way he plays will perfectly suit Barcelona and I would be delighted to see a player of such quality wear the shirt".

"I would be very happy to see such a talented player wear the shirt I wore for so many years", Ronaldinho said.

"I'm playing in one of the biggest leagues in the world", Coutinho said ahead of Brazil's worldwide friendly against England at Wembley, via Daily Star.

Coutinho was the subject of three rejected bids from Barcelona in the summer, with the Brazil worldwide handing in a transfer request in an attempt to force a move to Spain. "Those types of qualities will also hopefully help Brazil win the next World Cup". Despite signing a new contract at Anfield at the start of 2017, Barca were not deterred from making a move for the 25-year-old over summer - prompting the Brazilian to even hand in a transfer request in Merseyside.

Ivan Rakitic could be on his way out of Barcelona if the club do manage to sign Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho. Failing that, Barcelona will have to wait until the summer which is when Liverpool would rather do business, in the hope that Coutinho proves to be a hit at the World Cup with Brazil.
