Jurgen Klopp ruled out a possible reunion with Coutinho.
Barca have brought in Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid which means Philippe Coutinho is expected to fall down the pecking order and there's a huge possibility that Ernesto Valverde will have no use of him next season.
Also, with Coutinho being a former Liverpool player, he would not prefer to make a move to fierce rivals, and infuriate the Reds by making a move to the Old Trafford. Or maybe he found it there.
Coutinho moved to Barcelona in a £142m deal last January but has failed to rediscover the form he showed in his last months at Liverpool. If everything was true what newspapers write about me, wow!

That's my focus. Manchester United is my club.
It is further claimed that Barcelona have asked around €100 million for the 27-year-old star, as the Spanish champions want to partially recover the price they paid for him. I hope that he can keep performing like before. "I still think they could add a creative player", Carragher told Pundit Arena.
Barcelona are already looking to offload their most expensive signing, with Coutinho's agent Kia Joorabchian accusing the Catalan club of providing mixed messages for his client.
"I would be very hard for Philippe to play for any of Liverpool's rivals, because he has such a great affinity towards Liverpool". But Liverpool still finished in second place just one point behind eventual champions Manchester City.
While French moneybags Paris Saint-Germain are keeping a close eye on the situation as Barcelona look to bring their disgruntled striker Neymar back to Catalonia.
