Premium Calcio is certain: Philippe Coutinho will be a Liverpool player early next week for a fee of around 10 million euros plus bonuses. At the end, Inter are convinced to sell the Brazilian because of financial issue only, not technical because the club needs the money to launch an attack on Paulinho, a true target as the end of the transfer market approaches.
The Timao midfielder has a clause of 18 million euros but the club of Moratti will negotiate to lower the figure. Inter are convinced that geting a lower figure than the release clause is doable and this is why Moratti has given the OK to do this deal given the insistence of Marco Branca and especially Andrea Stramaccioni, one of the biggest desires of the 24 year-old Brazilian.
