Barcelona chief Grau: We have the money to buy Coutinho in January

Philippe Coutinho in action for Liverpool

However, further claims state that his Nou Camp exit would only be approved if Barcelona offered a transfer fee that is deemed acceptable by Liverpool officials.

"We are ready to buy Coutinho in the winter market or any player the technical staff request", the Liverpool Echo quotes Grau as saying. "We want to have the most competitive team possible".

It's hardly surprising that Barcelona's interest in Coutinho hasn't wavered.

Jurgen Klopp does not want to sell the 25-year-old - and he has the full backing of the club's principal owner John W Henry.

Jordan return to the title role, with Stallone expected to play Rocky once more. However, it's much safer to expect the film to hit theaters in 2019.

But Grau made clear the Spanish giants had not given up the chase.

"I don't think it's going to happen in January, I don't think they've got intention of making it in January", Balague told Sky Sports, per the Express.

Barcelona's £95 million summer signing Ousmane Dembele was seen as a clear-cut Neymar replacement, but the French forward has since suffered a hamstring injury and will be out action until around January.

All of the Catalan club's efforts were rejected by Liverpool which led to the former Inter playmaker submitting a transfer request at Anfield.

That marked a one tenth of a percentage point upwards revision for each year versus its last set of projections made in July. IMF's 6.7 percent growth rate projection is in line with the Reserve Bank of India's forecast.

If Barcelona did succeed in signing Coutinho in the new year then he would be cup-tied for the Champions League.

That is according to Paul Joyce of The Times, who is knowledgeable when it comes to all matters Liverpool.

After missing the first seven games of Liverpool's campaign, the attacking midfielder has scored in their last three matches.

Andrea Pirlo announces retirement
He was the man of the match in three matches including the final against France. "I'll play golf and tennis to keep fit". Like I say, I don't have that intention right now. "After 25 years of football, I will be at home with my family".
