BREAKING: Coutinho will join Barcelona,

Barcelona signing Pillippe Coutinho is just a matter of time, representatives of Barca are already in Liverpool to try to finalize the deal, according to Spanish media Diario Sport. 

Diario Sports reports that Barcelona would hope to secure Coutinho's signing this week, as they will make a final offer of €90m plus bonus on Tuesday.

Liverpool have already approved the deal but Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool manager, is not willing to let him go.

The Catalan club sanctioned Neymar's world-record sale to Paris Saint-Germain after the French capital club triggered his €222m (£198m, $263.7m) release clause. The former Santos star's sale has forced the club to act quickly to find his successor.

The deal will cost around €100m (£90.3m, $118m) for Barcelona and they have the funds at their disposal following Neymar's sale. With the two clubs agreeing a deal for Coutinho, the process of completing it should speed up and the midfielder could seal his switch to Spain in the coming days.

Coutinho will join Inigo Martinez to become Barcelona's new face in the squad for the 2017/18 season, reports ESPN Brasil. The Spanish defender will make a switch to Camp Nou from Real Sociedad after Valv'rde's side decided to trigger his €32m (£29m, $38m) release clause.
