Barcelona Have Agreement Not To Sign Liverpool Players For Another Two Years

Liverpool fans may have hated Philippe Coutinho's move to Barcelona last season but the Brazilian's transfer actually includes some good news for the Reds, no more transfers to the Camp Nou for three years.

Summer 2017 was a dark time in the transfer window because every single story seemed to revolve around Philippe Coutinho and Neymar. The latter's move to PSG triggered all the talk of the former's eventual January move.

Coutinho's transfer dragged on and on, dominated the summer transfer window, and he eventually moved at the beginning of this year to join Barcelona as Andres Iniesta's eventual replacement rather than Neymar's.

The move didn't go too badly for Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp's side reached the final of the Champions League and remain unbeaten in the Premier League at the start of this season, challenging with Manchester City and Chelsea for the league.

The Merseyside team are packed full of impressive talents with the likes of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita chief amongst them. Fans though live in fear of who could be the next man tempted by one of Spain's big two.

However it now seems like they only need to worry about any Real Madrid moves. According to AS, Barca agreed not to sign any Liverpool players for three seasons after the Coutinho move.

With last season having been and gone the La Liga champions are still two seasons short of being able to sign anyone from Liverpool, which is a pretty good place for the English side to be in.

Barca have a decent forward line themselves but, with Ousmane Dembele's future and an upcoming need to replace Luis Suarez, there is a good chance Salah and Firmino would be on their radar otherwise.

Since moving to Spain Coutinho has scored 12 goals and put on six assists in La Liga and helped Barcelona get over the line in La Liga last season.

They once again sit top of the table although they're only one point clear of Sevilla whilst fierce rivals Real are only four points behind despite their poor start to the season.

I can't lie, I've never been more glad to find out about a transfer agreement- no repeats of the Coutinho saga is certainly good news.
