Paulinho admits to talking Coutinho into Barcelona transfer

Paulinho admits to talking Coutinho into Barcelona transfer

Sport claimed that both Liverpool and Barcelona have discussed the economic details of the transfer with hopes that Coutinho could complete his long-awaited move to La Liga in January instead of next summer.

Coutinho's Selecao team-mate Paulinho opened up about his discussion with the 25-year old, regarding the transfer.

Paulinho's switch to Camp Nou from the Chinese Super League was also a protracted one and he hopes his worldwide team-mate will remain determined to make the move.

"I advise you to be calm, to leave anxiety aside". I also went through the same thing when I was in China. "They didn't get a lot of chances to be honest, they had one or two half-chances but it was quite intense so the way was always really long to come back into the right positions, the right situations". "Swansea is a different team to play against, they play real football so our main tool or weapon should have been today counter-pressing because you can not come through with all the balls but very often if you lose the ball and then the next second it's 80 yards away, but Swansea is playing football".

"I think if you look at Southampton and what's happened with Virgil van Dijk it's the opposite, it doesn't look like he wants to play".

Liverpool attacker Philippe Coutinho attributes his style of play the a "unique happiness" that Brazilians have for football.

"I joke that people are already looking for a house for him". His quality technique is what makes the difference. I think that helps the coach and players.

"I try to give him the basic information, the most important for him and his family, because maybe the time he lived here was not enough to know the city, but he knows that Barcelona is a very good city, that offers everything for him and his family".

"I haven't spoken to the chairman since Christmas Eve because I have been involved in the game but as far as I am aware I will be in charge for training and for the Watford game", he said.

"Coutinho knows that there are great players, like (Luis) Suarez, whom he met at Liverpool, waiting for him; he gets along very well with him".
