Nike quietly delete confirmation of Coutinho's Barca move

To add an explosive amount of fuel to that fire, Nike's official website began to promote Barcelona shirts adorned with the "Magician's" name in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The copy, while very clearly a mistake, will not go down well at Liverpool, with the club having rejected three bids from Barcelona for the player over the summer.

Barcelona are reportedly ready to make a £130m bid for Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho during the opening week of the January transfer window.

Speculation continues to mount over the 25-year-old's future at Anfield and Barcelona's kit manufacturers, Nike, accidentally confirmed his move to Spain. Anything might be possible, but as far as they know it the situation remains unchanged and they don't expect a Coutinho deal to be done in January. Reports emerged in August, saying the Brazilian handed Liverpool a transfer request, but the club denied those reports.

It's a new slant for the Catalan newspaper, who say Liverpool still want to keep Coutinho, despite everything that has happened and the player's desire to leave, but they know it's going be near enough impossible to keep him against his will.

Barcelona sold Coutinho's countryman Neymar for $350 million during the same transfer window.
