Has Philippe Coutinho signed for Barcelona? Nike make freaky kit announcement

Nike's website has started to promote Coutinho's move to Barca, saying "Philippe Coutinho is ready to ignite Camp Nou" and to "Get the FC Barcelona 2017-18 kit with the name of the wizard".

Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho has reportedly chose to start looking at houses in Barcelona.

Late last night, Nike, who also run Barcelona's online store, pushed an update live on their website.

It has been reported that Coutinho has been very interested in joining Barcelona and although the Blaugrana signed Ousmane Dembele in a 180-million-euros deal, they are said to be keen on the Brazilian to replace the aging Andres Iniesta.

Coutinho handed in a transfer request in a bid to force through a move to Barcelona last summer, with Liverpool turning down several offers for his services from the Spanish giants as they vowed to hang on to their star man. Now, the Daily Express reports that a monster £125m ($216m) fee has been agreed, with the move to be completed this week.

Nike have since deleted the section on their website.

This is for the fifth consecutive month that the index has come in above 50-point mark that separates expansion from contraction. PMI for the high-tech sector picked up further to 53.8 in December from 53.2 in November, NBS data showed.

In Spain, newspaper Mundo Deportivo has claimed Coutinho, 25, is already looking for a house.

Meanwhile, The Mirror reports that Barcelona submitted a £130m new transfer bid just days after the Reds confirmed the signing of Virgil van Dijk from Southampton.

Jurgen Klopp has refused to confirm Coutinho will stay at the club for the remainder of the season but it's more likely that the Brazilian's move to the Nou Camp will come in the summer.

'Nobody told me that.

"There is nothing to say". That was spot on.
