Barca Once Again Favourites To Sign Coutinho After Transfer Request

With some reports suggesting that Philippe Coutinho has handed in a transfer request, William Hill once again make Barcelona the favourites to bag him before the end of the transfer window. His odds have collapsed from 11/4 on Friday morning to 4/7, while his odds of staying at Liverpool have drifted from 1/4 to 5/4.


“After the second transfer bid was turned down, we assumed that was the end of that and Coutinho’s odds of staying at Liverpool were cut considerably. Now, however, the pendulum has swung back in the direction of Barcelona,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Philippe Coutinho club after the summer transfer window: 4/7 Barcelona; 5/4 Liverpool; 33/1 Bayern Munich; 33/1 Juventus; 33/1 PSG; 40/1 Chelsea; 40/1 Manchester City
