Klopp reportedly rejects idea of resigning Philippe Coutinho

So that's interesting news, at least, as Spanish outlet El Desmarque have reported that Jurgen Klopp has rejected a chance to resign Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona.

Apparently, Bayern Munich have let the Spanish club know that they have absolutely no interest in signing the Brazilian permanently, after just 7 goals and 5 assists in 22 games.

Not only that, but the agreement was that they'd be prepared to spend almost £100 million on the player. Something that, these days, Bayern just aren't financially capable of managing.

So it stands to reason that the player would be offered to Liverpool again, a place where he originally made his name, but Jurgen Klopp isn't interested. If you believe the Liverpool Echo, he even went as far as to laugh at the idea.

You see, Barcelona still have the (in fairness, quite laughable) idea in their heads that Coutinho is worth even close to £100 million.

They also claim that Klopp is much more keen on Fabian Ruiz from Napoli, who he could get for a bit less, and who he fancies a hell of a lot more.
