Madrid Were Willing to Better Barcelona`s offer for Coutinho

Speculation appearing in the Spanish media suggests that Real Madrid were looking to bring Barcelona`s latest signing to the Bernabeu.

The good folk of the Spanish news source, Mundo Deportivo, were looking to bring Philippe Coutinho to the club.

Furthermore, it is being reported by our source that Real Madrid were willing to offer Liverpool far more for the attacking midfielder than Barcelona actually paid for his services.

In doing the deal, Barcelona paid the English Premier League side a fee of £142 million, making the Brazilian the third most expensive player in history, behind Neymar and Mbappe.

Our aforementioned source is claiming that Real Madrid would have been willing to pay as much as £177 million for the player.

However, it looks as if Real Madrid missed the boat and that Coutinho had his heart set on a move to the Now Camp.

I guess you can`t win them all!
