It could be just a matter of time until Liverpool loses one of their main playmakers. A report breaking this morning indicates that Coutinho is set to miss their trip to Dubai. This, of course, only leads to more speculation regarding his potential move to Barcelona.

A supposed thigh injury would keep him out of Friday’s FA Cup victory over Everton. But, Coutinho hasn’t featured for Liverpool since the winter transfer window opened. At the moment, Liverpool is holding out for £140 million. But is that going to deter Barcelona? It’s difficult to say.

In the meantime, hopes are that Liverpool could strike a deal in which Coutinho stays at Liverpool until the end of the season (on loan) before heading to Barcelona. But that doesn’t appear likely. After all, the Spanish giants aren’t typically in the business of waiting on a superstar.

Back in August, a club statement would declare that Coutinho isn’t for sale. But how long can they keep their resolve?
