The Catalan giants want to sign Coutinho as a replacement for Neymar, who joined Paris Saint-Germain in a world-record £198m move earlier this month.

Off the back of Liverpool's statement, some markets were shut on Coutinho's future and he became 1/10 to stay at Anfield.

Still claiming the Reds would want at least €30m for the Germany worldwide, the Italian newspaper also make it clear the Premier League side aren't interested in weakening their side, especially so close to the start of the new season. "He has tremendous love for the club and its fans but, like Steven Gerrard and Luis Suárez have pointed out in the past, Liverpool does not let its players leave on amicable terms".

Philippe Coutinho feels aggrieved at how he is treated by Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool, according to a report.

Texas House tentatively passes bill increasing penalties for mail-in ballot fraud
And mail-in ballot fraud would be a felony if a bill that passed the House this week gets the governor's signature. Dan Patrick , in pushing the measure, say property owners are bending under the weight of their tax bills.

Liverpool winger Philippe Coutinho has reportedly issued the club with an official transfer request following the owners' statement that he is not for sale.

Other players to have asked to be put on the transfer list this summer include Leicester's Riyad Mahrez, Southampton's Virgil Van Dijk, Arsenal's Lucas Pérez and Diego Costa in the hope of speeding up their respective moves to Roma, Liverpool, Deportivo and Atlético.

Previous reports from Spain had claimed the blaugrana would have been ready to offer huge cash plus the likes of Rafinha or Andre Gomes in exchange for the services of Coutinho and Juventus from Italy had been keeping a close eye on the developments of negoations.

"I have said what the club's decision is about this and now you can read it - that is maybe the only difference".

Baltimore Ravens sitting QB Joe Flacco for entire preseason
Backups Josh Woodrum and Dustin Vaughan combined to go 5-for-5 for 95 yards and a touchdown in Baltimore's 23-3 exhibition win. Flacco has missed just six games over his nine National Football League seasons, all coming in 2015 when he tore his left ACL.

Klopp said Coutinho had not trained for a week since sustaining his injury. "He's a doubt for Tuesday unfortunately", he said.

At least that's the narrative I'm going to run with; the uncertainty over Coutinho is disruptive, but it's not earth shattering.

"It's not about this, Phil is not available for us, that's the biggest issue that he's not available to play".
