Coutinho Calls his ex team players
We got to know from some sources that Coutinho called up the Liverpool players to enquire why is Jurgen Klopp showing so much interest in Ousmane Dembele. It was discovered earlier that Liverpool's boss Klopp had expressed his interest on Dembele and wants him in the team. However his behavior was not appropriate and Coutinho was really shocked as he didn’t expect such behavior from his former manager. On the other hand, Diario Gol said that Coutinho called up his former teammates just to know the reason that why Klopp spoke. Coutinho was told that Klopp has got no such plans and he was only joking.
Ousmane Dembele Rumor
Rumors were heard that Ousmane Dembelle might be transferred to Liverpool this summer. The news have not been confirmed yet. It was earlier heard that Jurgen Klopp expressed his interest in Dembele in a press conference. He said “Is he on the market? Now I’m interested”. But latest update from Bartomeu confirms that at the end of the season Dembele will not be on the market. While speaking on the radio channel RAC1 he was heard saying “Dembele leaving? It’s not on the table”.
“We’re coming to the end of the season and after that, there will be meetings.
“He’s an investment for the future. He’s very young and we expect a lot from him. When a player comes to Barca, it’s because Valverde wants them.”
When it comes to statistics it can be seen that Luis Suarez has played exceptionally well when compared to Mohamed Salah throughout 2017/18 season.
Talking about Christiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar these three are the all time favourites when it comes to European football and this season they are looking even more promising. The trio beats all the other players across the five main European Leagues of 2017/18 as per Whoscored.com match ratings. But according to the recent ratings it can be seen that Barcelona player Luis Suarez who plays in striker position has moved up in the rankings.
Some of the other star players of the other Leagues are:
- Harry Kane
- David Silva
- Daniel Caligiuri
- Raheem Sterling
- Kylian Mbappe
- Mohamed Salah
- James Rodriguez
- Alejandro Gomez
- Luis Alberto
- Edinson Cavani
- Eden Hazard
- Paulo Dybala
- Luis Suarez
- Sergio Aguero
- Kevin De Bruyne
- Nabil Fekir
- Florian Thauvin
- Cristiano Ronaldo
- Lionel Messi
Deal of Antoine Griezmann
A lot had been spoken about the signing of Antoine Griezmann until Ernesto Valverde broke his silence on this matter. For the whole season he was seen in the Atletico Madrid jersey. The matter went to a different level when the president of Barcelona Josep Maria was heard saying that he already had a discussion with Griezmann’s representatives for a summer move. It was later that Valverde spoke up to calm down the situation
"I don't know how relevant it is that Bartomeu spoke with the Atleti president," he told reporters.
"He's a great player, I have no doubt about that.
"I'm sorry but I think we have to be cautious about players who don't play for us. I think we have to respect what we have here and also our opponents.
"Griezmann has a final coming up and we have to be careful. He's a great player, that's clear. In the future, we'll see what happens."
The trust factor
It was discovered that Lionel Messi somehow got to know that the coach of Liverpool Jurgen Klopp has got trust issues with two of his players. A Spanish weekly sport magazine which is known as Don Balon said that the Argentinian has got to know something big about Liverpool. The reports have suggested that Lionel Messi somehow got to know about Klopp’s plan to make a move for Jasper Cillessen. Liverpool is very much interested in moving Jasper Cillessen into their camp as he is unable to play for Barcelona in presence of Marc Andre Ter Stegen. It is also believed that Messi knows the exact reason why Cillessen is Klopp’s number 1, it is because he trust neither Loris Karius nor Simon Mignolet.
